That's Hintertainment vol.12 - [Hip Hop Special]

Playing tracks by

Tommy Tee, Finsta, Oktober, Otherwize, Rawcotiks and more.

Something a bit different this time. This is a trip down memory lane for me - a mix of lesser known late-90s US (and Canadian) Underground / Indie Hip Hop, formatted to fit on one side of a C90 cassette (ask your mum).

I used to hit the record shops in Leicester twice a week on delivery days to snatch up doubles of the latest imports (usually only 3 or 4 copies would make it to the city at a time). This is just a small selection of some of my favourites from that period. I mainly avoided some of the bigger artists / tracks / labels and focused on the ones that fell through the cracks (apart from some guy called Q-Tip).
