Three Mixtapes From 2005 AKA For Promotional Use Only

These first two mixtapes were given to me by RBG/People’s Army affiliate and Bronx representative N.I.M.R.O.D when he came to visit Boston back in 2005. The last one was given to me by a girl from London after we had this long ass discussion about Grime and the parallels and differences between it and Hip Hop (Grime derived from UKG AKA Garage as opposed to the UK Hip Hop scene which was, of course influence by the US Hip Hop scene/’s an original music form in itself), she was pretty impressed with my knowledge of the scene, it’s emcees and producers. So much so that she gave me this mixtape from one of my favorite UK emcees (next to Sway, Klashnekoff, Wiley, Skinnyman, Jehst, Kyza, etc.), Kano. I would write a longer and more detailed writeup but I need to write something else (namely the Dartflix blog for this week) before this damn laptop dies on me again. Enjoy ‘em:

A Alikes-Guerilla Nation Chapter 1 (Hosted by DJ EFN) (2005)

N.I.M.R.O.D-Failure’s No Option! (Hosted by Sickamore) (2005)

Kano-Beats & Bars (2005)
