Ok, so, thus far, I’ve uploaded two of these compilations of demo’s a rarities from the early/mid 90’s that i’ve collected over the years. I’m not gonna lie, judging from the wordpress stats, this hasn’t been a very popular kinda post. But fuck it…this is the last comp I got anyway so i might as well throw it up.
If you like rare 90’s underground hop hop , you should love all these comps. These are a collection of demo’s, original versions and just all around unknown shit. the majority of these were recorded off the radio (stretch and bob the underground railroad). Because these were taken off the radio, some of the names are just guesses as well as the recording quality isn’t exactly high.
If you like these, peep the others i’ve posted
Here’s the final installment:

Continuing where i left off last time, here are some more rare old hip hop gems from the stretch and bob era.
Some are Demo’s , some are original versions that never saw release. While the quality isn’t exactly awesome this is good stuff all around for all you obsessive nerdy hip hop heads out there (i’m looking at you scandinavians!). Enjoy

I gave you some freestyles from some of the old classic NYC underground hip hop radio shows. so, now, I give you demo’s. The majority of these are from Stretch and bobbito with a few random ones from NYU’s radio show and The underground railroad. Most of these acts are pretty much unheard of but a few made waves and even put out albums. forgive the quality on some of these cause all of this was ripped directly off dusty old cassettes.
I got more of these i’m gonna drop on you, so keep an eye open for that.
also, i’m not 100% on all the names of the artists or the songs. some of these were just random demo’s that Bob played once and i kinda guessed on the names. if i’m wrong and you know the right names, lemme know.

Chase phoenix and I are old buddies. we went to high school together and have been making music together in some way or another since the mid 90’s.
in 2004 he dropped on album called “Cut to the chase” on battle axe records. it was produced by Dub-l, Baby Dayliner and yours truly.
i thought it might be cool to drop some of our super old demo’s on here, cause, well, why the fuck not?
here’s a little five song package of old songs he did from around 94-97.
1)fear the fear (produced by Dub-l)
2)Direct hit (produced by blockhead and kasm)
3)Dutch (produced by Blockhead and featuring a rap by me as well. anyone who’s ever been curious as to why i quit rapping, use this song as your reason)
4)rewind (produced by blockhead)
5)chaos: produced by Dub L
