Omar’s Wild Years – The Wire Unmixed

I’ve been watching The Wire lately. (I’m just wrapping up season 1 so no spoilers please.) After only a few episodes, it quickly became clear that Omar’s taste in music far surpassed the paltry hip hop listening habits of Avon Barksdale as he cruised around, looking all tough, in his Ford Whatever along the gritty streets of Baltimore.

So, here’s my (unmixed) mix dedicated to Omar Little. You come at the king, you best not miss…
