Six years ago, with the help of 8 other folks on Philaflava.com, we put together a list of our Top 100 Obscure Tracks. The list went viral and the blogosphere was laced with 100 mp3s that spread like wildfire across all blogs, message boards and websites alike. I love obscure shit. Who doesn’t like to be different, especially when it comes to music?
Everybody would always play the same radio singles, but you’d look for that one album cut nobody was checking for. Maybe it was that a b-side or that cassette single only remix. I love guest features. I’m a sucker for a good 90s collabo. The beauty of the music is not only enjoying it, but discovering it as well. Having it all to yourself, while you feel the rest of the world is on some other shit. It’s that feeling that I always yearned for when it comes to my hip-hop. It’s also the main reason I preferred The Source’s Fat Tape section over anything else in that mag. Though, many of the tracks listed in Fat Tape went on to become singles themselves.
The T.R.O.Y. squad has always been adamant about focusing on a specific era in hip-hop, most of us would consider it the “2nd” Golden Age we’ve had. I personally love ’92-95. To me, those were the prime years. It’s hard to match the production, get away with the sampling and really, come with the same energy today.
When I’m bored with music I always find myself going back to those 4 years. They never let me down and despite some of the music aging poorly or now that I’m older, I realize many of these lyrics were downright embarrassing, there is still something very cool about this era. So with that said, I have put together a list of my 250 favorite obscure tracks from 1992-1995. 1996 had tons of great shit too, but to me, it was the beginning of that whole indie movement and it would take this list from 250 to 500 rather easily. One thing I’ve realized while compiling this list is that I am enamored with D.I.T.C. production, with the exception of Primo, Pete Rock, Diamond D and The Beatnuts, Buckwild completely owned shit in the 90s. I still don’t understand how he isn’t higher on most peoples list. The man always been incredible.
I used the word obscure loosely here, because we all know its subjective. B-sides, remixes, posse cuts, guest features and random album cuts make up my list. I’ll do my best to work on getting up some of those mp3s, though I am sure many of you probably already have them. Let me know what some of your favorite “obscure” cuts are from the golden age, I’m sure I am forgetting some. — Philaflava

This is compilation that i made to listen it while driving in my whip. After i finished it i thought maybe it would be a good idea to share it, some might find it interesting.
Main goal was that tracks must have heavy basses so that i can pump it up loud, shaking the whip. Second, i wanted to put as much as possible Diamond D tracks and featurings which including either his production, heavy basses or heavy lyrics, or all of that three.
You may ask why haven’t i included some tracks from “Word..Life”, well i have that album burned already and i like to listen to it from a to z.
Shorty Long once was affiliated with Lord Fineese, but after that single, he continued working with DJ Mike Smooth, but that track, that beat is sooo hard, making you wanna break something or somebody.
Lord Finesse’s production from 93-96 was so pure, crisp and clear, with heavy bass lines and drums, you just enjoy when you hear that clearness.
So basically those are some of my favorite D.I.T.C. tracks. I wanted to include few more tracks and i know you may ask why you left out this track or that track, but it is how it is, and there wasn’t any more free space on the cd.
