Mista Sinista & Roc Raida - Lesson #1 (1996)



I've had this tape for ages (think it's another one Tobes gave me) but for one reason or another never got around to ripping it. Possibly because I thought it was going to be an hour of **fresh! aaahh!** being scratched to death with a 9 minute Peter Piper routine at the end. I'm pleased to say that it's not, and it's actually a nice selection from the summer of '96...

Clark Kent - In Control on WBLS (1989)



I've been going back through some tapes and re-ripping things at 320 kbps whilst trying to date them (for HHRA purposes, but also just because having several shows labelled with just a year gets confusing) and have come across a few bits that I've never posted before. This recording of In Control was one such thing. I think it was part of the first bundle Tobes gave me. Anyway, Clark Kent is on mixing duties on Marley's show filling in for Pete Rock who's off on tour with Heavy D & The Boyz. I've dated it based on the ticket giveaway for the Livin Large Rap Contest at The Apollo on September 16th. Clark gets busy.

Charlie Chase - Live in Camden (2000)


Copped this one off Yoda. It says "live" but its actually a studio mix. I've not heard the whole tape yet and the tracklist is a bit all over the place. To be fully honest reading it is causing me minor anxiety but that probably says more about me than anything else. Either way, how often do you see a Charlie Chase mixtape? .

Lord Finesse - Hardpack freestyle (1992)


This is raw. The Funky Man drops a lengthy freestyle filled with his trademark slick talk and punchlines while Buckwild holds down the 1200s. No idea if this has been online before but I heard it today, realised I hadn't ripped it and as I haven't dropped many freestyles recently, here it is.
