A Bunch of Niggas

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

It’s crazy that 3 outta 6 rappers featured on “A Bunch of Niggas” are no longer with us. RIP Heavy D, Biggie & Guru.

Heavy D – A Bunch Of Niggas feat. 3rd Eye, Biggie Smalls, Busta Rhymes, Guru & Rob O (prod. Jesse West)

Another Heavy D, Biggie & Pac collabo, again 3 gone. Easily the one of the best collabs that ever featured these greats.

Jim Sharp “Straighten It Out Volume 2”

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

A few months ago Jim Sharp messaged me to let me know that the followup mix to “Straighten It Out” was complete. Unfortunately, I was too busy and not really focused. But now that I’ve got the time, this mix is crazy good. Chock full of Jim’s own custom edits and mixes. Especially the Willie Hutch remix and The Main Ingredient edit. As long as you’re listening, check out some of his other (unmixed) edits.




And if you missed out on volume 1, check his whole SoundCloud page or see my old post.

Rampage The Last Boyscout “Tha Red Oktoba” (Unreleased 1994)

Monday, August 20th, 2012


Well, the Philaflava forum is nothing short of a goldmine of lost music. skater4041 quietly dropped this shelved album in there yesterday, and now I share it with you. “Beware Of The Rampsack” dropped as the first single in 1994 and was advertised in several magazines, but eventually got shelved in by Rowdy Records. Rampage’s (new) debut album hit at some point in 1997 on Elektra.

There is very little info on this album, no production credits (although LG gets a shout) and a guest appearance by Busta Rhymes. If you have any info, please leave a comment.

Rampage The Last Boyscout “Tha Red Oktoba
01 Beware Of The Rampsack
02 Tha Red Oktoba
03 Looking At The World
04 Do You Want It
05 Come Wit It
06 The Night B4 My Shit Dropped
07 The Last Boyscout
08 No I’m Not Home
09 The Illest Moment
10 Set It Straight

Thanks to skater4041 for the original upload!

Super Saturdays: Posse Cuts (Boot Camp, Shyheim, Chubb Rock, Heavy D & Bas Blasta)

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

If you’re like me, you have a weakness for posse cuts. There is something about the pairing of different emcees together that always sparks my interest. Sometimes the collaborations are immaculate, sometimes in-congruent but many times they’re just flat out intriguing.

Posse Cuts can create careers in just 16 bars. Verses become memorable, some undeniable classics like Kane on The Symphony, Busta on The Scenario or even Prodigy on I Shot Ya (Remix). These records define an era. When an emcee went for theirs. When there was no last-minute editing so you don’t get out shined on your own shit. If you did, you did back then. Friends, favors and fun. That is what made up the posse cuts of the 90s. Whether you were label mates, crew members, weed carriers or just fans of a specific artists you reached out because you wanted to create something, not sell a record.

After the jump are 5 tracks that capture everything that you’d could ever want from posse cut. No these aren’t the greatest of them, some are truly great though. These are 5 unique posse cuts that remind you just how much fun hip-hop can be.  (more…)

Awesome 2 “Studio Record Freestyles (1996)”

Monday, September 20th, 2010

This is another piece of audio that I received back in my trading days. I never did any research on it until now. Released in 1996 on vinyl, it features 6 nice studio recorded freestyles done for the Awesome 2, which is the legendary team Special K and Teddy Ted. It’s tough finding much info on these two as their website has been suspended (relaunching in 2010), but you can find them on MySpace.


01 Chubb Rock
02 M.O.P.
03 Jeru The Damaja & Afu Ra
04 Channel Live
05 Busta Rhymes & Rampage
06 Das EFX




Here’s a vinyl rip of Awesome 2’s “Ahooga Breakbeats” that Thomas V put up last year.


Once all the ads and videos load, you can score an Awesome 2 radio show from 1990 RIGHT HERE on DJ Marioka’s blog.

DJ Stretch Armstrong “Volume Four” Mixtape (1996)

Friday, April 9th, 2010

As I continue on through the box of tapes that I located in my basement, here is a semi mysterious DJ Stretch Armstrong “Volume Four” tape. I could find zero info on this one, so I turned to (the mixtape master of the Philaflava forum) Andyman187 for some help. He determined that this tape is a recording from a Stretch & Bobbito show on Hot97 that aired Sundays from 12pm-2pm sometime in 1996. Andyman187 was also kind enough to study the audio and put together a tracklist for me. If anyone out there can help by filling in the blanks or correcting any mistakes, please leave a comment.
