Baltimore & Washington DC Underground Part 4


Here’s trusty old Volume 4 from the Baltimore And Washington Dc compilation series. I know I say this all the time, but this is still one of my favorites. It’s got a consistent feel, and rocks hard beginning to end. As is generally true, this collection is full of obscure goodies. The tracks I like best are numbers 3,5,7,10,11…. fuck it I can’t even pick. For those familiar with Ray Lugar’s more contemporary work, here’s a treat from his earliest lp. ‘High Roller’ is a perfect blend of Baltimore club and hip hop. Also check out the track by Juan Donovan in particular. It may not be your style, but to me it proves without a doubt that hip hop was alive and well even post-2000.

    You can't go by what feedback has been left. Matter of fact I know you can't because I view all the hits/stats we get. Unfortunately we don't receive enough comments as we should but peeps are definitely checking. We'd appreciate if people did take the time to give props though.
