Midwest Compilation

Thought I’d post some midwest material today..

The midwest pumped out a lot of bangin’ hip hop in the early/mid 90’s. Most of the cuts on these compilations are from cities whose scenes are familiar,. detroit, chicago, etc. Look closer and you’ll see some surprises here.

Oklahoma, Nebraska, Arkanas might not be states that spring to mind offhand for hip hop at all, much less classic material that burns itself into your memory and plays in your mind days, weeks, years later. Alot of the artists featured here were overlooked. Their work wasn’t widespread and their releases typify the regional abundance of the independent hip hop underground.

If I listed a state, but not the city it’s because I wasnt sure. Finding info on the net for some of these groups is impossible….

Here are links and tracklists to four head-nodding volumes of some of the best the midwest has to offer—

    A good release out of Flint, Michigan was I think a self titled release by F.O.D. (Faces of death). They were affiliated with The Dayton Family.
