DJ Step One - Drop It Heavy volume 2

New mix of late 90s (and a couple from 2000) bits for you...

Big Pun ft Prodigy & Inspectah Deck - Tres Leches
DJ Spinna ft Missin Linx - Who U Be
The LOX - Goin Be Some Shit
Show & AG - Full Scale
Polyrhythm Addicts - Not Your Ordinary
DITC - Thick
Blahzay Blahzay - Federal Reserve Notes
Screwball - Who Shot Rudy
Nas - Nas Is Like
Cormega - Take Mine
Pharoahe Monch - Official
Shabazz The Disciple - Brooklyn Bullshit
Channel Live ft Method Man - Ghetto B.I.
Naughty By Nature - On The Run
Mobb Deep ft Kool G Rap - The Realest
Jadakiss - Kiss Of Death
Gang Starr - All 4 The Cash
Common ft Sadat X - 1999

I definitely slept on that Missin Linx joint with DJ Spinna when it came out - the beat on that is lovely. Same with the Sheek solo track on the first LOX album, which has a nice stripped down beat courtesy of Carlos Broady and Nashiem Myrick. The NBN take on Miuzi Weighs A Ton was a recent discovery on a Marley Marl/Westwood tape and is pretty tough. The DJs amongst you can probably spot when I didn't know what to play next and threw on Nas Is Like. Shabazz The Disciple's Brooklyn Bullshit was something I heard Shortee Blitz play on Kiss FM and the next day I managed to get the last copy in the UK distributor's warehouse (I was a buyer for a chain store at the time). It's a on German label strangely enough. Gang Starr's All 4 The Cash feels like it was probably recorded for Moment Of Truth and would've fitted in nicely on that album. Enjoy...

Had trouble coming up with a name for this mix so went in the archives and decided to make it Volume 2 of this
