Baltimore & Washington DC Underground Parts 17-19 (1990-2007)

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Today we’ve got volumes 17-19 in my Baltimore/Washington Dc compilation series. Volumes 18 and 19 are some of my favorites out of all 32 editions so listen up. Sagat’s ‘Funk Dat’ came out as a single in 1993. It’s one of my favorites songs off his album.  If anyone wants to hear it, hit me up in the comments section with a request for ‘My Poem is… The World According To Sagat’. Download links and tracklists are t be found after the jump. (more…)

Baltimore & Washington DC Underground Part 4

Thursday, March 12th, 2009


Here’s trusty old Volume 4 from the Baltimore And Washington Dc compilation series. I know I say this all the time, but this is still one of my favorites. It’s got a consistent feel, and rocks hard beginning to end. As is generally true, this collection is full of obscure goodies. The tracks I like best are numbers 3,5,7,10,11…. fuck it I can’t even pick. For those familiar with Ray Lugar’s more contemporary work, here’s a treat from his earliest lp. ‘High Roller’ is a perfect blend of Baltimore club and hip hop. Also check out the track by Juan Donovan in particular. It may not be your style, but to me it proves without a doubt that hip hop was alive and well even post-2000.
