Baltimore & Washington DC Underground Volume 1 (1992-2005)

Here I am again bringing y’all back to the beginning of another series. This volume 1 of 18 Baltimore/Washington Dc compilations I’ve done. Why include both cities in one mix? Baltimore and Washington Dc are the odd couple. Fiercely competitive, musically eclectic, eternally underground, Charm City and ‘The District’ have long been unrecognized hotbeds for independent hip hop….

What ?

Yes, hip hop. While Baltimore is mostly known for house music, and Dc for go-go, there was and still is a prolific scene in the area.

    Only ONE Labtekwon joint, and then only a collabo? He may be the only rapper that matters in B'More.

    labtekwon is an arrogant cock. who cares ?

    he's the only rapper from baltimore who DOES NOT matter.

    he should have been left out.

    I know these were posted awhile ago, but are they available anywhere else now that Megaupload is down? I’d be really into checking them out.
