Acidi...


Now We See Further

Coming a year later and almost twice as long as "A Journey To The...", Acidicompositions finds the Acid Reign Crew more honed and confident of their craft. Gajah and Beond are once again accompanied by DJ E.S.P. and producer Dert, along with Awol One and Adlib and Zagu of GPAC. Coming out in 1998, this tape was my introduction to the Reign, and it blew my mind wide open. More than a decade on, it still gives me a feeling of excitement and anticipation for what's on the horizon whenever I listen to it. This is new-school hip hop, in the best possible sense of the term, even today. Besides that, it's just a great tape. Give your brain a treat.

  3. The track numbers of the mp3s are screwed up. #09 is the actual #1, #17 the actual #7. None of the tracks are missing, they are tagged wrong.

    Hey JackDevo, do you happen to have Suplevel Epidemic 7"s?

  5. Hey anonymous, you probably already saw the post for the sublevel 7" comp at
    http://www.thisisforthehustlers.com/2011/08/sublevel-epidemic-compilation-vol1.html
    but in case you didn't there's the link! I have the Awol/Xolo &" posted up already (It's one of the earliest posts here), and also the PEACE/Otherwize 7". The Awol track and both tracks off the P/O weren't featured on the cd.

    I have some other 7"'s around, but I'll have to do some digging. Stay tuned...

  7. It's no problem at all! After all, I don't own the rights to it or anything like that :) I'm glad you posted it up, as it provides more exposure for that great release.
