Valentine's Day is right around the corner, but never fear—Oakland's favorite record label released a seasonally-themed compilation just in time for the holiday. This might seem like an unusual move for the label, but considering the company's origins—it's owned by renowned street rap loverman J. Stalin—it's surprising that it didn't happen sooner. The CD is helmed by Livewire rapper Stevie Joe, and full of lush slow jams. So add Lovewire to your Valentine's Day shopping list, alongside the scented condoms and edible chocolate novelties. Worst case scenario, it's a good soundtrack for OkCupid browsing.
