The year just rolls on...March is now here. And if u didnt notice i am now back with a bang when it comes to mixtapes! Im back to reclaim my throne. Remeber im posting tapes that are no longer on the net or just isnt on the net period. The scary thing is that i still have tons more tapes to post as i just acquired a former mixtape dealer (from the mixtape era in the 90s and early 2000s) inventory, so when i get those tapes in my possession the game will b officially shut down!! In the meantime i still have lots of tapes to post that hasnt been on the net yet. So i advise u guys to stay tuned and keep it locked here. Please spread the word and tell ur friends that if they want classic rare tapes, stop by here and get what u need!! Fresh tapes will made available daily!! One thing i never forget about tho is this Sittin On Crates i started about a year and a half ago. It has been very successful and people are diggin it!! Do remember if u have any questions or inquiries about what u hear on these joints please hit me up in the comments box or chat box!! Ok people, its exciting times coming up for this blog and its only gonna get more intense and crazy! Im here and aint goin nowhere!!

This DJ right here is a veteran in the game who has done some amazing tapes! His specialty tho was Best Ofs of certain artists who was killing it at that time!! If u think about it, if that artist is killing it in the streets then a demand will b there for a tape featuring nothing but that artist!! Its pretty smart cause that tape will be sold instantly! And im pretty sure this one sold many units as well cause Nas was that dude at that time during the I Am & Nastradamus era. Dope jamz classic tape!

More beats, More rhymes. Hip-Hop at its finest!!
Now this DJ here is from NC and he gives u real true mixtape, this tape is more like a musical landscape. Very interesting. Please remember that cities like NC, VA, SC, DC supported the mixtape movement. It took DJs that was from NyC all over to get their name known. Kids that was living in NYC took these mixtapes with them when they went OT to go college. And thru mixtapes the word spread about certain DJs and they became stars overnight being called upon to DJing parties and stores demanding their tapes. The DJS had to make sure their masters was sent OT first to those cities so they can get their name spread by the record stores selling their tapes. Then NYC came second to get their masters out. But they knew those cities would make them stars and great money was coming in for all the opportunities that opened up for the DJs. The king of mixtape stores was Mr Freeze Records & Tapes in NC, if u was a prominent mixtape DJ in the game and u wanted ur name known OT, this was the spot to hit up first. This guy was one of the largest supplier of mixtapes and he had it all! Please read about this guy if u can, his contributions to the mixtape game is very vital in the way DJs became stars outside of NYC!

Like i said before, when u went to the record store back in the days to copp tapes u always looking for the latest and greatest to rock to. U got ur known DJs and every now and then u take a chance on a unknown DJ. This tape right here was one of those risks that turned into a reward. This tape consisted of 2 DJs that i dont know their names off hand but they do mention their names on the tape. I got to say that this was a dope tape, very tasteful blends and some dope jams that was rockin at that time. I wanna say this tape is from late '94 - early '95. Dont sleep on this one!!
