Tony Touch "Hip Hop 43" (Mixtape, 1995)

It's the Rican Renegade on the control... Tony Touch in the place to be, it's Hip Hop 43. Tony Touch's next tape, Hip Hop 44, would end up being my favorite mix tape he'd ever release, but 43 had some really dope joints, too. Tracks from artists like The Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Cella Dwellas, Miilkbone, Tha Alkaholiks, Jeru The Damaja, Showbiz & AG, Cash Money Click, Jemini The Gifted One, Smif-N-Wessun, O.C., DJ Eclipse, Funkdoobiest, E. Bros, Nine, Tragedy Khadafi, Masta Ace, Redman, Da Bush Babees, and more! It's noteworthy that Tony Touch had a snippet from the original demo mix of Notorious B.I.G.'s "Who Shot Ya?" on this tape. The lyrics are slightly different from the final version. Anyhow, dig into another dope Tony Touch mix below... (Updated audio link).
