FUNK MASTER FLEX X FOXY BROWN





What's good yall,I'm back in the building again. Thanks to hard working clients and the lords blessing,I can say its been a busy 09' so far. Shout out to all the followers of the blogsite as well as newcomers. For those who are new to the site,www.historyofmixtapes.com,ill explain it clearly. The site was built as an effort to educate you all on the history of the mixtape game. In addition promote the new book that I am writing"FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY...THE HISTORY OF MIXTAPES."


During my research a few facts were proven to me. One being that the game has many levels,there are several different chapters in the history of the mixtape phenomonon.
The hip hop dj actually wasn't the first to make an actual tape. The credit has to be given to the disco dj,he actually did it first. At the time that the disco dj was rocking hip hop wasn't even born yet. Todays blast digs deeper into the different levels of the mixtape movement. To further explain it all I posted 2 tapes(FUNKMASTER FLEX LIVE ON HOT 97 and FOXY BROWN PLATINUM PARTY).

Red Alert is probably the most recorded and dubbed radio dj in the history of radio,that's undeniable. But in the 90's Flex was coming in on a close second. Every kid from the AUC who went home for any type of vacation,made it his or her business to tape FUNK FLEX on HOT 97. Dubbed copies of radio shows were actually as coveted as your favorite mixtape. Especially for the kids in the tri-state area. Once again Flex goes in on some 90's shit,during the 90's.

Part 2 of this double disc dub is FOXY BROWNS PLATINUM PARTY@ATLANTA LIVE(circa 1997). On the wheels of course its me,DJ TRAUMA, and J NICE. At the end of her set NAS comes out on stage and rips through a few FIRM joints. Yeah yall,a classic party at one of Atlantas classic night clubs. If you listen closely,the party is hosted by CHAKA ZULU(DTP). Peep the tape and enjoy. Do remember to click on the link below
