I decided to upload 3 different hard to find West Coast underground compilations from 1998. The first two editions of the Beats & Lyrics series mixed by Kool DJ EQ and featuring joints from Souls Of Mischief, Aceyalone, Abstract Rude & A Tribe Unique, Living Legends, Pharcyde and some rare joints from Boston rhyme vet Ed O.G. along with Dres from Black Sheep.
The third upload is Cue's Hip Hop Shop Volume One, a compilation sponsored by the famous store Cue's Hip Hop Shop in Daly City, CA. Guest appearances include Rasco, Kut Masta Kurt, Sacred Hoop, Third Sight, Roc Raida, Mr. Dibbs, Rob Swift, DJ Badrok, DJ Marz, Apollo, Vinroc, Shortkut & Richness. It's definitely worth it to check out the ill lineup of turntablists with underground CA talent. To find out more about each of these releases as well as the tracklistings, try http://www.discogs.com or do a regular Google search. Enjoy 'em:
