YO Mixcloud crew whats good!!!
Found this classic mixtape i did back in the summer of 1996, and i thought i'd share it.
This mixtape was the first one i put out that, has a US MC freestyling on it (MAD SKILLZ). DJ 279 took him down to a tiny basement record shop called Handspun Records where i worked, and where this was recorded. Looking back this freestyle is dope but definately a PAUSE LOL....
I called this mixtape "Bootlegged in Japan" as at the this time my mixtapes were blowing up and i found out loads had been bootlegged in japan... This was confirmed when a group of Japanese guys came in2 the store.When they saw me i had 2 sign autographs,photos etc.I said, "i dont even sell my mixtapes in japan",how do you know about me??. GO translated the dude, and he said,yes you are " Bootlegged in Japan" hence the title!! ENJOY.
