Top Rawmen - My Side's Better...Naw Mine Is!" (1999)

Have to admit that I didn't recognise the name Top Rawmen when I was given this tape but it's  definitely worth checking. DJs Mike C and Nando take a side each. Nando goes in with some early/mid 90s favourites whilst Mike C drops some of the newer releases of the day (Quiet Storm, Nas Is Like) into some blends. As the cover says, the duo were DMC and ITF finalists so there's a couple of routines where they show off their skills but not so much that it messes up the flow of the tape. Enjoy...

Daddy Dog - 5th Period Detention

 Another Daddy Dog mix. Strictly classics on this and nothing you won't have heard before but its really well put together with cool blends and general nice touches as far as the mixes go. It's always worth having a few sets of the golden era standards in the stash...


This is yet another one from the JPS stash and there's still more to come.

Daddy Dog & Doboy - D Day Volume One (1999)

Back to the 90s now. The tape deck hasn't completely died yet and so I managed to finally get the second side of this one ripped. Lots of 1998 underground indie biz on this one, mixed and blended as well as you'd expect from anything with the Fifth Platoon name on it.

Funkmaster Flex - Fast Lane Part 2 (2002)

Staying on the CD tip, here's something from Flex. This dropped in the Summer of 2002 when the Rocafella - State Property - Dipset union was taking over. Some nice freestyles on this one...

DJ Envy & Dipset - Bad Guys 14 (2007)

Having tape deck problems at the moment so its back to the CDs. This is a bit more recent than what I'd usually post (I say that, its already 7 years old) but the Dips seem to generate a fair bit of traffic around these parts. You've probably already made up your mind on whether or not you'll download this one. All I'll say is that if you're a fan its definitely worth getting...

There's a few bits on here that I haven't seen elsewhere. Cam only features a couple of times but the SOS Band sampling 'Weekend' is a favourite, as is JR Writer's 'Xtacy' (mainly because it uses 'Moments In Love' which is pretty much fail safe). Its mostly a solid effort all round which is unusual for something like this. Also worth mentioning is that unlike alot of 00s mixtape DJs, Envy actually puts in the effort to drop the tracks in on time and sequence them nicely.
