Let's Make Mixtapes

Keeping your childhood pop icons alive…even the ones you thought were dead.

Is there a more definitively summer song than Coolio‘s “Fantastic Voyage”? On this very date in 1994, Coolio released his debut album, It Takes a Thief. The album would reach number 8 in the U.S. and that very single I previously mentioned would not only become a road-trip staple and summer jam, it would reach number 3 on the charts and be certified two-times platinum.

The talented rapper would follow up Thief with another classic (song and album), Gangsta’s Paradise, which would confirm his place in music history (and in parody by Weird Al Yankovic‘s “Amish Paradise.”) But for now, come along and ride on this fantastic voyage from July 19, 2017.
