New Jersey Underground Part 3

This is my 3rd underground hip hop compilation from New Jersey. It features some really rare and hard to find material such as High Authority, The Undatakaz, Mr Low Kash, etc. Of note to you collectors, the track by Double X Posse is not on either their 1st or 2nd album, and does not appear on any of their known (to me) singles. I think it came from an piece of wax that never got released. If anyone can tell me about it I would like to know more!

20 (01:11) P.O.V – Nuff of the Ruff Stuff (Outro) [1993]

As usual, I am totally open to corrections so if you see something here’s that not right feel free to comment. For instance, I think 8 Off might be from New York. Help me out here folks, what city do ‘Da Cheeba Hawks’ come from ? How about ‘P.O.V’ ? This whole collection still gets a huge amount of replay on my system. I hope volume 3 earns your respect as well. Enjoy!

    I love these New Jersey comps…!! Hardly a dud on this one, they're all great.
    Faves are the 45 King inspired 'Flavour', the oh so early 90's sounding opening track, the ultra moody High Authority release & the fantastic Undatakaz track (the best of their cassette-only release, a f#*in' monster!!)
    And I'm curious about that 'Da Cheeba Hawks' tune as well… it's an oddity, but a good one.

    Glad to see some of my 90’s stuff with my group The Undatakaz being recognised, it’s been a long time coming, The reason we only dropped 2 songs is a story worthy of a VH1 special.

    F*ckin’ tremendous issues here. I’m very glad to see your article. Thank you a lot and i’m taking a look ahead to touch you. Will you please drop me a mail?

  8. Nice read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!

  9. Heya, you’re absolutely correct. I always go through your site content attentively. I am furthermore curious about upvc window styles, maybe you could talk about this from time to time. Cheers.
