Assuming you had a solar powered Sony Mega-Bass Walkman, you could do a lot worse than being stuck on a pile of sand with these joints…
Three Times Dope – Original Stylin’
E.S.T. displays vocabulary spills that kill over bumpin’ beats for your bonkey.
Master Ace – Take A Look Around
This tape is long as fuck but no slow spots. Job done.
Boogie Down Productions – Sex & Violence
The greatest thing KRS-One ever did without Scott.
The Jaz – Ya Don’t Stop
Large Professor, The 45 King & Prince Paul all on one tape? Approved!
Kool G Rap & DJ Polo – Wanted: Dead Or Alive
No explanation required.
Threat – Sickinnahead
One of the last great LA albums before The Chronic ruined it for everyone.
Akinyele – Vagina Diner
‘Checkmate’ and ‘Exercise’ are two of the finest tracks of our generation. I’ll bare-knuckle box any man who says different!
Pete Rock & CL Smooth – Mecca & The Soul Brother
The cassette version has two extra songs that even the CD didn’t get, so this is a no-brainer.
Bushwick Bill – Little Big Man
Pure genius on every level.
Compton’s Most Wanted – It’s A Compton Thang
Kind of Compton’s answer to the first Lord Finesse album….
What would you take? Keep in mind, you have to actually own these on cassette, otherwise it’s too easy…
