After the Chubby Chubb mixtape (that was 4 years ago, time passes!), here we go again with another tasty mixtape from the 90′s..straight outta my mixtape shoebox! This time it’s female Dj Lazy-K outta New Jersey in charge.
I bought this in 1997 in New York (can’t remember where..there were lot of places selling tapes at that time…too many maybe…) and I think it’s quite a killer. I think recently Lazy-K has become quite famous with the explosion of the crap mixtape scene, but in her days she was pretty underground and not very commercial.
I read an interview where she says that she was pretty crazy with the mixing back then and that she was playing too much roughneck stuff: well in my opinion that was 10 million times better than the latest mixtape with lil wayne on it!
There are some real treats on this tape, like the Dark Skinned Assassin freestyle (heads might remember him from the “Lock shit down” single,one of the best Wu related released…if not the best), but the real highlight is the “phat intro” on the b-side: she plays lots of classics,one after the other, cutting up tracks really quickly (lots of boot camp click material…I think she was with Steele from Swif-n-wessun for a minute…..).
There are also forgettable tracks towards the end so I’m sure heads will rewind back to the “phat intro”.
Thanks to Jopparelli for restoring this tape that was in bad condition and that’s dedication!
