  • Thaddeus Jeffries x Screens And Rhymes – Thanks Obama Mix

    Thanks-Obama-Artwork-Cover-Screens-And-Rhymes-Thaddeus-JeffriesScreens and Rhymes officially presents our mix, “Thanks Obama,” commemorating 8 years in office for President Barack Obama. This is the fourth collaboration between me and DJ Thaddeus Jeffries. We compiled 42 tracks based on the 44th President’s eclectic music taste—including some of his favorite songs from the Presidential playlists, artists that visited the White House, and the film Southside With You. Art direction was handled by myself in association with Michael Toney.

    President Obama is undisputedly the greatest pop culture President of all time. He brought SXSW to the White House lawn, and fostered an environment for a more inclusive and artist-friendly 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Thanks Obama.

    In honor of Black History Month, Thanks Obama features a blend of African-American music genres (funk, soul, hip-hop, R&B, jazz). We mix the contemporary with the classic: everyone from Beyonce, Nas and Young Jeezy are represented, to Nina Simone, John Coltrane, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and The O’Jays. We built a special web experience to help send Obama off properly. Stream via Mixcloud, download, and check the tracklist below. Obama out.
