Uncuffed My Mixtape: Ambitionz Az A Ridah

KALW / Uncuffed

The Uncuffed My Mixtape is a selection of our producers' favorite songs. This week, Steve Brooks talks about "Ambitionz Az A Ridah," by Tupak Shakur.

The blood starts pumping, chest is full of air, your head is high, and you there and you're ready ... I thank that music for helping me have the confidence to survive on a level four.
Steve Brooks
