This is a straight classic right here, who else than DJ Premier mixing it… “A compilation of independent New York City artists from 1997. It is arranged & presented by Haze (New York City graffiti artist) & mixed by DJ Premier”.
This is the mixed CD version, the wax and tape version are slightly different. I think it’s something like this; CD version doesn’t have “AK Skills – Check Tha Flava”, also the last track on the tape and wax version is different, it’s the track “Special Ed – Think Twice”. “Choclair – 21 Years” and some skits are on different places on each medium. And last, there’s a tracklist mistake on every medium. Track 7 is listed as Natural Elements – Lyrical Tactics and should be “Mr. Voodoo – Shine”. Voila.
I once read in an interview DJ Premier saying that there will never be another one.
