In this weekly column, MC/DJ Hesta Prynn pairs pop culture stories with an original playlist.
May is National Bike Month, and in my continued effort to live a public transportation-free lifestyle, I am getting back on that proverbial horse. At the same time, Beck is back with a new album and a summer tour including a few dates here in New York. In my mind, bike riding will always be linked with listening to Mellow Gold on cassette in my yellow Sony Sport Walkman. As I'm midway through making a mixtape for my new riding adventures, this week's Five 'n' Five highlights my favorite Beck songs and my bikes through the years.
