” Attack Of The Killer Demos : 14 “
The overwhelming majority of the time I analyze a project from front to back before letting it fly on the BATTLEFIELD…But I will make an exception to the rule today…
I just got my paws on this ultra rare JACK THE RAPPER- PHAT TAPE 93 joint that is stacked with all types of demo action…..
“This previously mysterious tape immediately went to the top of my wantlist after hearing clips – there were just too many banging tracks with that perfect 1993 sound. Based on the beats, I was also under the impression that everything here probably came out of NYC. When I was finally able to find a copy and read the liner notes to fill in the gaps, I thought it was interesting first off to discover that these tracks came from all over the east coast and midwest… but also to discover that there is actually a good amount of history behind this compilation! For example, this tape features some of the earliest work of Blahzay Blahzay (here as Hostile Takeover) and DJ Spinna & the Jigmastas, as well as production by Eddie Matos, A.J. Woodson of J.V.C. Force, and a few artists with known indie 12″s out (Double Dose, Poppa Doo, Da Enna Cirkle).
Due to its super elusive nature, it’s still going to seem like a straight demo tape to me, and it basically was… these were all demo submissions to Jack The Rapper. But if that ’93 sound alone in the clips doesn’t make you NEED this, now its additional historical value has been revealed too… keep your eyes out for this massive tape!”.
*Update – After a few listens I would have to give the championship belt to “L.E.S NIGGAS”…
