Philly Retrospective Volume 7

Hittin’ ya with volume 7 of the Philly retrospective series today. There are some underground gems here for you phanatics. Starting off is a classic banger by Lux. As far as I know this was his first official tape. If he did something else earlier than 1994 I’d love to know. Next up is a dark, haunting tune by Tainted Mindz. I’m assuming most of our readers are familiar with the two releases they put out, ‘Killadelphia’ and ‘All In The Flip.’ If not, let me know and i’ll up them soon. Other favorites on volume 7 include tracks 7,8 and 11. One of these days I’ll post The Kartel album if anyone out there wants to hear it. Philadelphia is an endless gold mine for diggers and this compilation delivers in spades.
