Request...FTA

Finally The Album

Request... Sorry to keep y'all hangin.  The gang is all here for this one - Pilot Rase, Joe Dubb, Megabusive, Dick Jones, Triangulum, Smash Adams, Luke Sick, Tapemaster Steph, and Neila, among others.  They all lend their talents to this grimy four-track masterpiece.  Few crews were as true to the four-track aesthetic as these cats, and their work in the medium was visionary.  Underground hip hop wouldn't be anywhere as cool as it is without them. 
 This link will only be up for a hot minute - Rase has plans to remaster and re-release their old work, so this is only for those cats who explicitly asked me for this.  Thanks go to Kali Yuga (I think) for the original file!  Get it quick!

  7. I think people appreciate FTA more for their influence on other artists than for their music itself. There's no need in dickriding every old LA2theBay/Hawaii tape. The Neila track is nice, an old classic.
