Grandmaster Flash - No Copys (AT LAST)



Side A
Side B

When you donate your collection of tapes to a hip hop museum, you are essentially donating the tape shells, as due to copyright the music cannot be shared, in any form. So the music will sit there and rot, and never be heard.

Or, you could post them online, and give them a life of their own.

Here's a personalised mixtape from 1982, for someone called MONEY MIKE from Grandmaster Flash.

Amazing Dewitt - tape #5

Side A
Side B

Here's a  1993 mixtape by Amazing Dewitt, from Queens. Check out a 2011 interview with him HERE. 
Also, here's a short video of him in the mix from 2012.

The first 6 minutes of the Side A sounded very rough and distorted, so I cut it off :(. You'll get an idea of what I was up against in the first 10 seconds, but then it's all smooth sailing.

Dj Prez & Dj Moe - Strictly Butta pt. #7


Side A
Side B

I wish I had more tapes like this! Prez, part of the E Brothers (Right? I'll find out one day!) and Moe. Not sure who Moe is, but the tape is a good 'un. Unreadable label by Sam's Orbit, although I'm sure it was photocopied to death. Good luck reading it!

Dj J Skills - Hot in 97

Side A
Side B

ALTERNATE SIDE B LINK IF ABOVE DOES NOT WORK *

Not sure who J Skills is, but I don't know much about mixtape DJs. He seems to be signed to Ron G's label Waterbed entertainment (I think it is?)

* PASSWORD IS grimeandlime

Bahamadia's B-Sides show - #2

Side A
Side B

Thought I had posted #1 but I must've forgot....

Here's something I've copied and pasted -

" Her historic weekly radio show at Philadelphia’s 103.9FM, “Bahamadia’s B-Sides”(circa 1997-1999), reigned as one of the highest rated radio shows in Philadelphia. ” Bahamadia’s B-Sides” gave Philly radio listeners their first taste of then unknown artist like Eminem, Mos Def, and many of the Rawkus Records roster of artist during the late 1990’s. In a nutshell, “B-Sides” showcased underground talent worldwide and served as a template for taste-maker forums such as “Now Hear This” presented by fellow Philadelphians The Roots. In Bahamadia’s words, “the show was designed to nurture grass-roots culture.”

Dj G Smooth - The Smooth-ness


Side A
Side B

G-Smooth from the Bronx, another Dj I feel doesn't seem to get too much recognition nowadays. G Smooth was a name you heard shouted out on mixtapes alongside Kid Capri, S&S, Ron G, Triple C etc... I posted another tape from him, 'Kickin Flava' back in 2014 here

LA Luv - Live at The Skate Key

Side A
Side B

Get your skates on etc.

Cesmaster - Blast From The Past pt. #2

Side A
Side B

No talking on this tape, just old school RNB etc. Side B was pulled for copyright, the password is 'grimeandlime' (that is always the password to any .RAR file on here you can't extract). No idea who Cesmaster is, I saw a few other tapes with the same legend a while ago (with covers etc) but I didn't get my hands on those.
