New Jersey Underground Part 4 (1992-1997)

Comin at ya with style on New Jersey Underground Volume 4. Check out the tracks by Mr Low Kash, The Undatakaz and F.O.A., if you are a fiend for obscure hip hop from the Garden State. Of note is the track by Maniac Mob. They were one of the dopest crews I’ve come across but their output was pretty limited. The rest of this mix is laced too so y’all will probably dig it. Hoping there are new tunes in here for our readers so let us know!

    Thanks alot, I love the Jersey underground series. So much dope stuff that came out of Jersey!!

  2. ThomasV says:

    Bustin Melonz are from Flatbush, Brooklyn

  3. Anonymous says:

    the liner notes on the bustin melonz cd say cranford, new jersey.

    and how about all the stuff that ACTUALLY IS FROM NEW JERSEY ?

    how about a comment on THAT, INSTEAD ??????????

    Cranford, NJ is a very affluent suburb, with virtually no black population to speak of, outside of some doctors and lawyers. For reference, it is where most of the film "Guess Who" starring Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac was filmed. I highly doubt that those guys are from there, I was also under the impression that they are from Brooklyn, as Flatbush is mentioned in the liner notes and their whole style just seems … very Brooklyn.

  5. T.R.O.Y. says:

    Not that this is some kind of great site, but this also lists them as being form Flatbush – http://www.rhymestate.com/TheSite.htm

    Are you sure Carnford, NJ isn't where Continuum records, or their management or legal representation were housed?

    the rest of the stuff that is indeed from the garden state is DOPE. i think maybe that's what should be the focus here, not how many black people live in cranford, new jersey. who cares ?

    the fact that this compilation consists of many rare tracks from artists who in fact DID reside in nj is the point and hopefully other people who see this will recognize that instead of getting stuck…….

    are the other tracks obscure enough to appreciate or is the fact that bustin melonz are from ny and not nj enough to ignore/not comment on the tracks that ARE new jersey based ?

  7. verge says:

    That Scott Lark joint is dope. Beat's ill. There's a few more that were really dope that I never heard.Good compilation, thanks.
    Also, is that Artifacts cut actually 'The Ultimate' from their second album or an unreleased version of it? Just curious. I'll pay more attention when I give this another listen.Which I will because there's some really ill beats on here.

  8. thomasv says:

    Track 5 of Bustin' Melonz "Watch Ya Seed Pop Out" features Gravedigga of BUSHwackas and Special Ed (The Bush). I believe that you can hear them mentioning Flatbush in their songs. I'm just correcting you…

    It's still a great comp to listen to though!

  9. Strategy786 says:

    This is an ill comp. But the Blvd Mosse joint is reall choppy sounding, with the sound dropping out completely at the 3:33 point. Can anyone provide an alternative?
