The Curtian Has Now Closed....

I knew this day was coming one day or another but hey all good things must come to a end. I had this feeling before and i walked away but the love brought me back. But now its really time, its time to tip my cap and move on.
I seen alot come and go over the years, and as i look around there are only like 1 or 2 blogs still around doing it when i 1st started. So that lets u know how times have changed. I tried fighting off this thing for a long time but now its time to concede and move on.
When 1st started thing blog i just want to provide people with rare mixtapes that u couldnt find no where else. I was consumed by vintage mixtapes and considered them rare musical pieces in time! People like Tapemasta & S.O.U.L put the batteries in my back to embark on this journey that i started in '08. At that time blogs like mines was doin their thing by giving the people what they want which was vintage mixtapes. The response was crazy!!! I never knew it was gonna blow up like that when it did!! Alot of people contributed to my success over the years and its so many people i cant even remember the names. But i wanna say to those people that i thank u for ur contributions and ur help!
Times are different now, the musical landscape has changed and people are switching the game up and doing it different ways. So i figure its time to adapt too. I realize what i have is very rare  and not everybody is able to get what i have. For almost 7-8 years i let people get what they wanted for free and no charge. I felt like i was doing the right thing and not being too big headed. But the game has now changed and a recent talk wit Tapemasta made me realize its time to change as well. U notice he dont even put up tapes no more for download, that ended years ago. He has so many tapes he now is making his investment work for him. And u will see what im talking about for that soon. But as for me i feel i should transit over to that. I have tapes that i never posted on this blog that is hard to find. So if u want them its now up to u to reach out to me to get them. But it will come at a price and we can determine that when that request is made.
From here on out please e-mail me at dipsetgunit456@aol.com if u looking for any tapes. U can have it on cd or just a link. If i have what u looking for then we can negotiate a price and all that stuff.
I will keep this blog open so everybody can get what they want as long as the links still work. And i will keep uploading my monthly mixes every month cause people still lookout for those. But neither than that my blog days are over. Once again i wanna thank everybody man for their love and support! I appreciate it man from the bottom of my heart. I wish everybody the best! Stay tuned for my monthly mixes and if u looking for any tapes please e-mail me at dipsetgunit456@aol.com and we can work out a deal thru there. One love and peace to all!!

The Source Fat Tape: May 1991

As we move on the year is 1991. And to say the least Hip-Hop isnt on my mind yet or not as much, im still rippin running around playin wit friends, playin nintendo and just livin life. But in 1991 i was introduced to Tribe Called Quest by my Dad's best friend's son. He way older then me at the time and i was chillin by his car and he asked do i know who they were. I had no clue then he showed me the The Low End Theory tape and played me Its Like Butter! I was mesmerized cause i never heard nothing like that before. So that kinda set me in motion to pay attention to hip-hip a tad bit more but that wouldnt b in motion until '92. Anyway there are some solid tracks on this Fat Tape as u can see so peep the flavor and ill holla at yall next week!

Source Fat Tape: May 1990

Yes people the Source Fat Tapes are back! And for this one we gonna go way back to 1990! Now around this time i was just a youngin and hip-hop wasnt in the equation at the time so u already know how that goes. But as u can see there are plenty of jams to go around, different styles for different folks!
One thing i do know is that if u was a rap artist on a label back then, ur video will get played on TV. Back then Yo! MTV Raps, Video Music Box, BET & Pump It Up was playin any hip-hop videos they could get. So u was actually gettin worldwide exposure! Compared to now where TV stations are barely any videos and the internet has made it to where rap artists not even on labels can get worldwide exposure. Kinda of crazy isnt it? Ok well keep it locked and i have more to come just peep the flavor next saturday!! Word to ur mother!

Tony Touch- #60: Power Cypha 3 Pt. 1 (1999)

If u are a true mixtape aficionado like i am then u know that Tony Touch changed the game wit his tape #50. On that one he had 50 of the most prominent mc's in the game to rhyme on his tape. It was ground braking and very innovative! The response from it was crazy and everybody had to have it!
Then on his tape #55 he upped the ante wit 55 mc's rhymin on his joint. And the response from that was crazy as well and i think Touch knew that he was onto somethin wit this. So when it was time for his tape #60 to drop he raised the stakes even higher wit 60 mc's kickin flows on his tape!
This right here is part 1 of this epic tape, so please peep the names of who is rhymin on this tape and u will see that he had the best of the best of on this! Kick back and feel the flava on this and stay tuned for part 2 next week!! Tony Toca!!
