With the overwhelming feedback we received with the debut of Sounds Like The 90’s, we realized we were on to something special. We definitely don’t have intentions of changing our direction. It goes without saying we’re currently own the 90’s hip-hop on the blogosphere, so we ain’t even trying to step on the toes of those focusing on current times. With respect to blogs such as Nahright, 2Dopeboyz & Rhymehouse, T.R.O.Y. is going to continue dropping the Sounds Like The 90’s series each and every month as promised. Both our Philaflava and T.R.O.Y. in boxes become inundated with submissions and inquires from new artists. We appreciate all the responses we’ve received and encourage you to continue to send in those submissions because each month we’ll be gathering tracks to showcase on our Sounds Like The 90’s series.
Volume 2 brings back that ol’ boom-bap. We got the brand new track from Raekwon’s forthcoming Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, a DJ Premier montage from tracks 3-5 that ends (track 6) with 3 talented lyricsts paying homage to the greatest producer of all-time. Newcomer Nero hailing from East Elmhurst gives us a track that’ll leave you in disbelief when you realize he is only 16 years old. We haven’t heard a polished emcee this young in a long time.
The mix finishes with the late great James Yancey and one of his rougher tracks which incidentally is featured on the album Ruff Draft. Then a few Philly cats Truck North and Black Thought drops their swag that leads up to a G. Rap rendition done by Minnesota’s finest, Atmopshere.
