DJ Premier - Crooklyn Cuts

I remember buying these tapes like it was yesterday. I don't think i went anywhere in the summer of 96 without my Sony cassette walkman and these 4 tapes. That was the greatest summer of my life. The Yankees were on pace to win there first World Series in 15 years...led by a rookie shorstop named Derek Jeter. The only worries on my mind back then were how i was gonna afford the new Jordans in time for my boy Delshawns "end of summer" party in the park. These tapes were the soundtrack of my summer of 96.

This is a pure classic part of hip hop. From East Flatbush Project & DeS - Tried By 12 too Smoothe Da Hustler & Trigger Tha Gambler's - Broken Language Pt. II... Premier lays down hot track after hot track of NYC's finest hip hop. The quality on the first tape is a little off...but you forget about the faint hiss after the first couple of tracks. Brooklyn's Greg Tate starts off Tape B with a spoken word poem called "What Is Hip Hop?". It used to send chills down my spine listening to that man preach hip hop. If you listened to hip hop then or are just catching up...these gems will take you back in time when rap music was oh so simple & pure!

hot damn, when i saw that scan, i bugged, i have a box of tapes from that era, to me that time was the real.

i have some of the tapes ripped to mp3, but the quality is crap.

i just happened upon this site, are there other tape trading websites you'd recommend.

one Mix Tape Kings release I have ripped is 5 Deadly Venoms.

damn, i just remember another tape I have ripped by DJ Chillfreez, Giant Step Dj, if i remember right, there is a track on there that I need to know who did it, one of my alltime favorite tracks but noone knows who it is.

How can I get these to you? If you even want them.
