Tony Touch "Hip Hop 25" (Mixtape, 1993)


This is Tony Touch's Hip Hop 25 aka Arrive To Get Live. Reaching 25 tapes probably felt like quite the milestone at the time... Released via Tape Kingz in '93, it's got cuts from Naughty By Nature, Diamond D, Brand Nubian, Masta Ace Incorporated, Wu-Tang Clan, Lords of the Underground, King Tee, Kool G Rap, Kenny Dope, Young Black Teenagers, Rough House Survivers, Gang Starr, Heavy D. & The Boyz, Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg, Brand Nubian, Zhigge, Nubian Crackers, Biz Markie, X-Clan, Nice & Smooth, Boogie Down Productions and more! Hearing Wu-Tang's "Protect Ya Neck" on this mix tape shows how ahead of their time they were - it sounds like nothing else on here. Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to everyone... and enjoy Hip Hop 25 with updated audio (Thanks to J.Nickelz), below...
