If you weren't part of the mid 90’s Memphis, Tennessee DIY rap tape scene then getting hold of tapes that were circulating amongst that community would have been fairly impossible. I think it's fair to say that memphisraptapes.blogspot really brought that stuff to the world at large. Certainly, that’s how I got to hear amazing stuff like Tommy Wright III and so on. Once Delroy Edwards released now highly sought after vinyl editions of Lil Noid and Shawty Pimp feat. Red Dog albums through his L.A. Club Resource label, I was kinda expecting the floodgates to open but it never happened. Now a new label Gyptology Records has vinylized the follow up to Shawty Pimp’s ‘Comin Real Wit It’ in the first of what I’m really hoping is gonna be more vinyl editions of rare Memphis rap tapes.
Basically, if you were into ‘Comin Real Wit It’ then these eleven raw tracks from 1995 are more of the same stoned, codeine tranquilised, lo-fi, sun-warped G-Funk inspired production with tales of hustling in the hood. You can practically feel the baking sun and smell the BBQ and weed smoke. Remastered for vinyl and apparently will not be repressed. Real underground rap shit - you know the score.
