In 1996, DJ PNS dropped the first of classic mixtape series “Chicago Rocks”. It is known for strictly featuring Chicago emcees. The Molemen had dropped a few highly-influential mixtapes but the “Chicago Rocks” series was, without question, their finest contribution to the mixtape market. It featured Molemen affliates as usual like E.C. Illa, Vakill, Ang 13 then you have up & coming artists such as Rubberoom, Stony Island, D2 Tha Es, Fully G, Tha Chamba… It also features known names such as Common Sense, Tung Twista, No I.D. & Dug Infinite, and Crucial Conflict. The “Chicago Rocks” series would follow with two more volumes that you will get in a few days. Now, take you time and listen to this Chi-Town piece of history.
