Roc Raida "WHAT! 187FM" (Mixtape, 2000)

The mix features a near-flawless blend of classic Golden Era tracks from Jungle Brothers, Eric B. & Rakim, Boogie Down Productions, Cypress Hill, Black Sheep, Redman, Gang Starr, Fu-Schnickens, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Moon, Mobb Deep, Jeru The Damaja, Smif-N-Wessun, Group Home, Nas, Kool G Rap, De La Soul, Artifacts, Mad Skillz, Busta Rhymes, MC Breed & 2Pac, as well as routines from Total Eclipse and Q-Bert. The skits mixed in provide comedic relief and remind you of the true craft in making these classic mix tapes. It brings me right back to NYC/Fat Beats. R.I.P. Roc Raida. Listen to Roc Raida's WHAT! 187FM Where We Don't Give A Fu*k! below. Props again to DJ Step One.
