Take That Travis!!

by Staff on April 8, 2007

How about some hard care?

Ahh baseball is back. Travis loves the Pirates and I love the Reds. One of the most sacred records in sports is likely to fall this year and I am trying to ignore it. Give me baseball and hip-hop and I don’t need much more in life.

Ok so, Trav asked me for the Dre Roadium Tapes again. For those of you that have never heard of these or are totally new to Travis’ site, here’s the story. Supposedly these are rips from cassette mix tapes that Dre put out in t he late 80′s early 90′s while he was at Ruthless Records.

These tapes were sold at the Roadium Swap Meet, hence the name. A mix of the hottest rap tracks out-just like any other dj, but sometimes with a few guest appearances, i.e. Eazy -E etc. I guess there are 5 of them? At least thats the rumor that we all know. These were quite rare when they were unearthed, but have since been spread all over the bolg-i-sphere. Here is an article on their origin: Roadium Tapes

Since I am on a Dre kick. I am gonna drop this little gem that I found about 2 or 3 years ago. I don’t know much about it except it is ultra rare. It’s Called “Dr. Dre Exclusive”. By now, most of this stuff has been floated all over the internet. But I really like this compilation of rare Dre tracks. Grab it if you don’t have it already. It just may hold you over until Detox drops this fall (Yeah right)

Click Here->Dre Exclusive

I was going through my Dre shit and found this great article from I think 1992 in the Source (The cover with the gun to his head). You should be able to read the pictures when they are full size. I tried my best to take the best possible pics (I Don’t have a scanner) It’s a great read, take a look:

Ok next up on my surprise to Travis since he was trying his best to use reverse psychology on us, is the fabled “Red Tape” from DJ Quik.

This is what cause all the ruckus with MC Eiht. This too is a rip of a swap meet mix tape, just lettin ya know bout the quality ;) On track #4 Quik said, “to the top of the tree for C.M.W. to see”. And if you listen, it was never a diss. If you check out “Let You Have It” by Quik he says, “We wasn’t dissin, just lettin you know the other side was on a mission”. Anyway people were wanting this tape, so be on to you, here it is:

Red Tape

Lets seeeeeee what’s next on the docket?

Yes that is an ooooollldd ass pic of Grand Puba Maxwell, top 5 most fugliest rappers. Heres a nice mix Gang Starr vs Brand Nubian. I nothing about it, hell you may ll know about and have this joint. If not, sit Back and enjoy!

I actually still have that Megamix Tape. It was an old TDK SA-60 minute, and I got every use I could get out of that tape. It played at a thousand parties…lol. I wish you could re-up all of these classics. The files are no longer available.
