Wow. This is what happens when you have a demo fiend like K Funk, and an acclaimed radio show host/dj like Kevin Beacham, on the same forum. Exclusive demo mixtape anybody?! I can absolutely co-sign that this is a great listen all the way through and will be looked back on as a classic mixtape to many people.
Personally, I love demos and this should not fall short of any of your expectations if you feel the same. Everything is in the best available quality. No radio rips or skips or pops anywhere in sight.
*In case you were wondering, this Kool Keith cut was actually released on that Unreleased Sex Style Archives in 2009. You can cop that here.
