Filthy Rich is back with Volume 2 of his Reggae Hip Hop mixtape...
"For those of you who
aren't familiar with the 1st volume, I had an idea to create a series of mixes
containing 90’s dancehall reggae artists over 90’s hip hop beats. Everything from popular hits to obscure white label-only
remixes, including my own custom blends of 90’s reggae acapellas over hiphop
instrumentals from that time period. What began as a casual one-off “best of”
type mix, evolved into a multi-volume obsession. I even learned to produce my own party breaks just for this
The first 40 mins of
this mix starts with an uptempo, early 90's boom-bap feel. The next 50
mins segues into mid-tempo, mid-90's vibes. I've decided to keep the track list under wraps for now.
Reason being, I always found it more fun to not know what's next. There was a
certain thrill when I heard a dope track, but couldn't identify it. In this
age of digital playlists where everything is meticulously labeled, I felt I'd
try to bring back some of the mystique of the mixTAPE era. Some of my favourite
mixtapes that I bought back in the 90's had no track list at all...I had to
figure it out for myself. I appreciate those tapes that much more because of it.
For those of you who absolutely MUST have a track list, I'll
eventually type one up and put it out.....but I'll let this mix marinate with
you for a bit.
Feel free to contact
me with your feedback....I'd love to know what people think, and I'm open to
suggestions for the next volume. I gotta large up my old friend Masia One for blessin' me with
the cover art.The old 90's Reggae party poster style fits the vibe of
this mix perfectly"
