Charlie Wilson & The Gap Band's Hip Hop Legacy - Mixed by DJ Synapse

A very high quality mix by my man DJ Synapse demonstrating the influence of Charlie Wilson on Hip Hop. BTW, if anybody has that Kanye/Jay-Z joint produced by Pete Rock (192 or better), feel free to send it my way.  DJ Synapse's description of the mix and alternative download link after the jump.
The influence of Uncle Charlie Wilson on r&b and hip-hop is extraordinary. From being the main force in the legendary Gap Band, who's classic songs "Yearnin For Your Love", "Outstanding" and "Dropped A Bomb On Me" have been sampled in countless hip-hop, r&b and pop songs, to being featured on many newer artist's current songs.
Join DJ Synapse, who takes listeners through some of the greatest Charlie Wilson compisitions and Gap Band songs, and the songs that sampled them, as well as newer songs by Kanye West, T-Pain and Lil Kim that have featured the seminal r&b star. Make sure to look out for Charlie's new album "Just Charlie" and the single "You Are" which is getting mega-airplay on urban radio.
