Baltimore & Washington DC Underground Part 6


Here’s volume 6 from my Baltimore/Washington Dc series. This is one of the compilations I’m most proud of. It’s packed with obscurities. Out of the 300+ compilations I’ve done, this is probably the one I spent the most money on. That ‘random rap’ doesn’t come cheap ya know. Yes DWG, some of this material is actually new to you. I know I say this alot, but I return to volume 6 over and over. The phrase for today is ‘shelf life’. To my diggers out there like ThomasV, U/No is Nonchalant’s 1st group before she started out on her own. My favorite track though has got to be the cut by ‘Capitol Punishment Crew’. Ripped from cassette, the tape cover tells us it was recorded and mixed at ‘the studio above Discount Mart’. I have to wonder how many unheard classics were recorded at the mysterious and now much hallowed Discount Mart. Dc natives speak up!

    more props @ Schenectadyfan and Philaflav for the thorough research + crazy one-offs from DC cats in the 90s underground. I can tell you for sure most of whats posted received NO airplay here in DC, w/ the exception of 'Lookaway' by QMA and even that was scarce. Dope x10000
