Rare NYC Underground 1990-1996

Here’s a dope little selection of rare hip hop out of New York City. Hook needs no introduction. If you missed his album, dont sleep.

‘Sicks weeks’ is one of the strongest cuts from ‘Hip Hop 101’ and starts us off right. Second period is taught by the Sin Assasinz. This lesson comes from their full length album. Fellow contributor ThomasV brought us some of their earlier material awhile back.

The rest of this compilation is off the beaten path so I hope y’all check it out! Seems like the Abadaba single from 1995 is a little better known than his older stuff, but I’d go with his 1992 release any day.
