Jaz's Maxell Fat Tape-Feb 2007

This is just a little compilation of dope joints from back in the days that I have been giving some burn lately and I thought I would share while thinking about the days that seem so ancient now.

Do you remember going to buy some blank tapes after school to tape a radio show or make a compilation?, you would tear off the wrapper, (teeth and/or hands or knives), place the tape in the player and BOOM...whatever minutes were on your tape was pretty much how representative of how long it took to make up a comp (often longer if there were nicks and skips on a record though...but then that would bring out the super editor in you ha ha)...

I feel really privileged to have todays technology at my fingertips and I can only imagine how much larger my collection would be if mp3s were around in the 80's.

At a guess you probably already have these, but if not then I hope you have discovered something you haven't heard before, many thanks to siderealist,nap3platez, crates of ag and all of the other blogs that are just goldmines of quality and much missed real hip hop.
