New Jersey Underground Parts 9 And 10 (1989-1999)


My New Jersey series has taken a backseat for awhile now. There are some bangers here I had forgotten about. Some of the more obscure selections are probably Two Weary Travelers, The Outz and Corrupt Empire. ‘Get High’ is from a ‘Priority Records Sampler’ tape. Posting these compilations makes me remember tons of classic tracks that have slipped from my mind. These lineups will keep you coming back..

I’m pretty sure I got all the cities/years right, but if not let me know. Hollow Point is from New York apparently I think but Corrupt Empire is from New Jersey. More than anything, I am trying to capture the sound of a particular state when I do these regional compilations. I know there are probably things mislabeled here, but I’m hoping y’all will forgive me. Leave some thoughts, tell me what’s new to you and what you’ve heard. I love putting these ‘Garden State’ collections together. Thanks for reading. Jersey stand up!
