The Midwest Lineup 1989-2005

Steppin’ to the plate today we have a bunch of hard hitters out of the bread belt. I am bringing you volumes 3-5 in my midwest series First to bat is number three which is the only one of 21 volumes with a few tracks that came out in 2000 or later. Beginning at volume 4, the rest of them are strictly 90’s selections. If you need the 1st two volumes these are the links:



Volume 3 —

One of my favorite cuts here is definitely ‘Phantoms Of The Opera’. I know this classic banger has been heard around the way for years and I had to include it here. Essential underground vs the industry type rap. I can’t get enough of the beat on ‘Two Trains’. Maybe the sound is not your thing but it’s played around here all the time. Also check out the beat on ‘In Sync’. If anyone wants to hear it I’d be glad to post the full ‘Weightless Recordings Battle Raps & Freestyles’ release one of these days. Track 6 is one the nicest cuts from that collective. Here’s a link and the tracklist.


01 (5:17) Kanser – Love In Your Face (Minnesota 1998)
02 (3:16) Kankick – Live As It Gets (Ft. Medaphor) (2001)
03 (5:08) All Natural – Phantoms Of The Opera (Ft. Allstar) (Chicago 2001)
04 (5:21) Denizen Kane – Two Trains (Chicago 2002)
05 (4:19) Hypnotic The Native Sun – War Of The Gods (1998)
06 (5:14) Manifest, Inkwell and Blueprint – In Sync (Scientific Remix) (Minnesota 2001)
07 (3:49) Qwel – If It Ain’t Been In A Pawn Shop, Then It Can’t Play The Blues (Chicago 2000)
08 (4:10) Jack Frost – In It 4 Life (1999)
09 (3:47) Black Project – Crown Me (1999)
10 (4:00) Ghost Team – Revenge (2000)
11 (4:48) Brother Ali – Nine Double Em (Minnesota 1999)
12 (0:22) Weightless Recordings Battle Raps & Freestyles – Freestyle 7 (Minnesota 2001)
13 (4:08) Matlock – Get Outta Dodge (Chicago 2002)
14 (4:00) Rubberoom – Street Theme (Filthy Mix)(Chicago 1997)
15 (12:23) The Primeridian – Tatuduhendi (Reprise) (Chicago 2005)
16 (8:20) Organic Mind Unit – (Bonus Track) Hard……Complicated (Minnesota 1997)

Volume 4 —

Kinda on the gangsta tip this time. Playya 1000 is the kind of sound that makes me crank the system. Maybe it’s the drawl, maybe it’s the infectious beat. Whatever, turn it up. Another one of my favorite tracks is number 6. K-Stone was a veteran of the Detroit Scene. If anyone out there can provide us a comprehensive disograpny of his work that would be dope. I know he had at least 5 releases I can think of. Next up is that timeless midwest anthem from D 2 Tha S. ‘Dissin these fools’. Cold blooded lyrics, a moody beat, what more do you need ? If you like that old school delivery don’t sleep on Awesome Dre and The J To The D. Here’s a link and the tracklist.


01 (4:52) Big Bur-na – Addikted To Da Streetz (Tulsa 1995)
02 (5:17) Devious Steve – Where I Stay (Indiana 1994)
03 (3:58) Playya 1000 – Foe Da Mil Ticket (Tulsa 1992)
04 (5:16) 16 Keys – Murder One (1994)
05 (3:57) Menace To Society – Menace Niggaz (Michigan 1993)
06 (4:08) K-Stone – Niggas From Detroit (1994)
07 (4:57) D 2 Tha S & Toxic (Of The Chamba) – Dissin These Fools (Chicago 1995)
08 (2:50) Romeo Ryonell – Iskyspook (Kansas City 1994)
09 (3:59) Blu (Of Criminal Division) – I Rush Niggas (Michigan 1993)
10 (4:02) Swolts – Casanova 1973 (Chicago 1996)
11 (4:10) Thawfor – Dagger Of The Mind (Chicago 1995)
12 (5:02) Chill Will – In The Park After Dark (Chicago 1995)
13 (3:58) Insane Rhyme Slangaz – Side Effects (Flint 1995)
14 (5:36) Awesome Dre – Deadlier Than Strichnine (Detroit 1993)
15 (5:14) The J To The D – Fuck That (Detroit 1991)

Volume 5 —

Volume 5 is one the volumes I like most of all 21 midwest compilations I’ve put together. The remix for ‘Suicide’ is dope as hell. I’m not really a fan of Twista but this track is tight. Another standout is ‘Detroit Madness’. This is probably the best thing on his album. To be honest Daddy Hill can’t rap his way out of a paper bag but the cheesy beat and female background vocals have me hooked like crack. Make sure to listen up when ‘Streetwise’ comes on. This is one of the doper selections from ‘The Hidden Talent Disk’. The album is a bit ‘mixed’ and unfortunately lives up to it’s name on a few songs. Sometimes I like to rescue good cuts from the sea of mediocrity by which they are surrounded so I don’t forget about them. Here’s a link and the tracklist.


01 (1:26) Twista – Suicide Remix (Chicago 1992)
02 (1:18) Capital D & The Molemen – Midnight (Chicago 1999)
03 (5:12) The Ill State Assassins – Hardcore Crew (Chicago 1995)
04 (3:31) B.O.E. – Black On Earth (1995)
05 (3:14) M.F. 911 – Shots Cold Gunnin’ (Detroit 1993)
06 (4:37) Daddy Hill – Detroit Madness (1997)
07 (3:40) Six Pak – Living Nightmare (Chicago 1995)
08 (4:08) Da Flint Connection – Death B-4 Dishonesty (1994)
09 (3:48) Nettwork – Walkin’ Thru The Graveyard (Flint 1994)
10 (3:33) Awol – Trilogy (Detroit 1993)
11 (6:06) The Speedknot Mobstaz – One Shot One Kill (Chicago 1995)
12 (8:20) Hynpnotic The Native Sun – Kallsiti 3K (Minnesota 1998)
13 (1:46) Magnetic Personalities – Insectacide Prelude To A Dark (Minnesota 1995)
14 (3:55) B-Movie Fiendz – Streetwise (With Mic One & Thawfor) (Chicago 1997)
15 (3:53) Fo Deep – Mutha Nature (Flint 1994)
16 (3:51) Shade Luv X – Local (Minneapolis 1993)
17 (4:01) H.M.H. – Yo Play Radio Joint (Michigan 1994)
18 (3:00) Esham – Some Old Wicket Shit!!! (Detroit 1990)

There’s a fair amount of music here. I’m sure some of these groups are familiar to you already, I’m hoping a few will you’ll be playing for the first time. Leave some comments, let me know which cities you’re interested in and who you want to hear more from.

For those who missed it, I posted volumes 6-9 here:


Thanks for listening, enjoy!
