The Year in Rap – 1995

October 15, 2009 – 9:19 pm

This is the final in The Year in Rap series. Lots of good stuff here, though not my favorite in the series. Some exclusive stuff you’ll find include David J Hip-Hop Central remixes of “Fast Life” and “Mic Check” (where he even lends a verse). Saafir’s “Pull Ya Card” is on here, too, an underappreciated gem from the saucee one, in my opinion.

I had always intended to create cover art for this one, but just ended up printing up some cheesy cover with just the name of the mix and the track listing. I can’t even find a copy of the cover, though I know it’s in the basement somewhere.
