Baltimore & Washington DC Underground Part 5

Bringing you the 5th volume of my Baltimore and Washington Dc series this time. Today’s post is not one to sleep on. A few of these might be hard to track down elsewhere, such as 1,10,12,17 and 18. It’s a shame Derrick Rebel never had an album out, to my knowledge at least. I have a few other selections from him and the man brings heat. Another Baltimore rapper to watch out for is Silohuette. Alkuttraz, track 11 is for you man. Hope it’s new! On another note, I am not entirely sure about D.C. Da Messenger. I’ve read that he was from Lanham, but also that he was from Michigan so I really do not know. Lanham was home to some other artists with pretty universal styles so ‘Avenue Bum Rush’ could easily be Maryland rap, but Michigan would not surprise me either. If anyone out there can clear that up I’d love to know. Also, tracks 5 and 6 are a mystery to me. Basically the same thing, I am not sure which artist/song title is right. Regardless, this compilations slams like a heavyweight. If you dig that underground mid-atlantic sound you’ll be coming back to volume 5 again and again. Enjoy!

    With the way the city pushed everyone out of Ward 8 for that ridiculous stadium, alot of DC stays in PG county. Drive through L & Half st. SE and you'll understand how much sh*t's changed since the 90s! big up for posting these though – always put me on to joints I never knew about (and I've been in the DMV for 30+ yrs)…
