Portland 90s Rap Classsics

Another mix spotted by dirt_dog, helmed by DJ Ian Head:

Despite what one would think, the hip-hop scene when I was growing up in Portland wasn’t just a bunch of skinny white nerds like me. There were – and are – some very passionate, incredible, original artists, and many of them continue on today, whether in PDX or elsewhere. In high school, as much as I waited for NYC or LA artists to visit the town and perform, I attended countless local shows and was inspired by these artists often more than those who passed through.

Before I ever owned a turntable, I was a dedicated fan. This tape is a dedication to the artists and music that I grew up on.
