The Lost Art of the Mixtape is happy to introduce our newest guest-mixer Jesse... "A little explanation here is that the order is for both flow and theme (as it relates to my life). I threw in a little irony because I was actually born in NYC (Upper West Side, Manhattan) and now live in Chicago and want to stay here for the foreseeable future so you could say I am definitely in a Chicago State Of Mind. I have a little Tennessee arc and, obviously, I had to put Going To California before California. Anyway, I hope you enjoy." September 2009.
