DJ Ev 'Back 2 Skool' mixtape (1995)
Thought I'd start the new decade off with another tape out of DJ MK's collection.
This mix is by Long Island's DJ Ev, who I first heard of when Stretch Armstrong mentioned him on his (now defunct?) blog.
Ev is very nice on the cuts and from the few tapes I've heard is an all-round dope DJ who went on to roll with Funkmaster Flex's crew. Lots of 1995 goodness on this one. Tracklist is in the comments section

Funkmaster Flex & DJ Ev 'Big Dog Pitbulls pt 2' (1998)
Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year. Back to work and the old routine tommorow morning. I'll try and dig out some more treats to help you get through the next few weeks!
UPDATE: I got in touch with Ev via his myspace. apparently I got the title wrong!
"it's School's In Session and the Big Dawg Pitbulls Pt 2 tape is also hosted by Redman.
I like the update in your review, however, your original line "should have went on to bigger things" is accurate as well - lol...
Thanks again - Ev"
