Shadez of Brooklyn "Tape Sampler" (1996, Hosted by Evil Dee)

Here's the original DJ Evil Dee sampler of Bushwick's Shadez of Brooklyn crew, consisting of Chocolate Tye, Tee Black, Reverend Al, Rambo, and production from Da Beatminerz. The 2-sided sampler features the smash, "Change," a live freestyle, "When It Rains It Pours," a freestyle up at Hot 97, as well as an interview with Funkmaster Flex. The B-Side features a remix of "Return of the Mack" and "Slow It Down," then back into joints like "Wanted Men," "Pandemonium," "Under Pressure" and closes out with a final freestyle. With the host extraordinaire, DJ Evil Dee on the mic and the mix, it's a dope listen from start to finish. Check it out below! (Update: new stream added below).
