Doap On Arrival – Eye Of Da Storm (1992)

At one Pittsburgh music outlet they keep old cassettes in the basement. Cool. Most other stores moved their tapes to the dumpster years ago, who knows how many gems have been demolished by garbage truck teeth. Maybe old cassettes are what those dumpster diggers with their lit up miners hats are looking for in the alleys of East Liberty at 1 a.m. on a Tuesday night? They’re looking for the Mel-Man tapes, I’m almost certain of it.

Anyway, a few weeks back I came across this cassette release by a Philly hip-hop crew, Doap On Arrival. Never heard of em? Me either. But that’s a good thing, right? At least for a golden era junkie finding out about an album almost 20 years after its original release it is.

The album was released in 1992 and has that vintage Philly hip-hop sound. No further info that I can provide. The music speaks for itself.
