This week's exploration of the music of RJD2 has been very fun and exciting.  We've looked at his work with some of my favorite rappers and his solo work as well.  Today I wanted to explore what may be his most popular track of all...

 

 

This track, "A Beautiful Mine" was originally on the Magnificent City album with Aceyalone.  

 

 

The instrumental was grabbed up by the folks at Med Men, and became the show's theme song.

RJD2's original sample source is Enoch Light's song "Autumn Leaves."
