You already know how much unreleased 90’s material has been put out on vinyl in the last couple of years. Some great stuff, some just okay. Some worth the big price tags, some not really. Well, this isn’t gonna be on that $80 record steez. It will be affordable, but more importantly, dope 90’s hip hop music.
Six 2 Six Shift Records‘ planned releases:
Constant Deviants – Feel That b/w Problem Child(also remix and instrumentals) 12″
Sparrow – Flows Of Death b/w Armageddon 12″ (see cover art above, dope)
2 previously unreleased Constant Deviants LPs
1 previously unreleased Global Platoon LP
2 Previously unreleased Sparrow LPs
All from between 1994 and 1999. They really can’t go wrong here.
If you aren’t familiar with these artists, we have plenty of mp3s to get you acquainted here.
Constant Deviants is M.I. on the rhymes and DJ Cutt on the beats.
Global Platoon is M.I., Rome, Bosch, Fla Fla(of Sparrow), Illogic, and Supreme on the rhymes and boards.

If you’re feeling any of this and want to see a proper release, either follow their blog here and leave some comments, or join their facebook vinyl petition group. Make sure you let them know that you want to see these and all the other treats they’re holding onto, on vinyl or CD. These guys deserve some support in getting this stuff released. There’s plenty more heaters, I just tried to pick 10 of my favs here and it wasn’t easy.
There is dope new material in the works that we will try to keep you abreast with.
