More evidence of Team AFF Europe doing big things. Here we see Ophax & Tricksta team up for a nice UK / USA mix that really hits the spot. Ophax gets the ball rolling nicely with some killer cuts from Nativity, as well as some killer bars from some underground cats such as Billz, D-Dash, Big Skeem, Switch and The League.
Without a shadow of a doubt Late & Tricksta are the UK’s number one mixtape DJ’s. Between them they have worked with the likes of Chamillionaire, Papoose, Red Café, Geolani and the legendary K-Rino. Here they return with another excellently mixed CD from Brooklyn’s ‘next to blow’ St. Laz.
Tricksta’s back with a yet another new mixtape series. As many of you might already know Tricksta has just been made the official UK DJ for the East Coast crew ‘Team AFFicial’ as well as running the successful UK record label Wolftown Recordings. Here Tricksta simply gets one MC from Team AFF and one MC from Wolftown and then gets it popping.
It’s no secret that UK DJ’s & CEO’s of Wolftown ‘Late & Tricksta’ are big fans of everything SPC. If you look back in the history you’ll see that Late & K-Rino collaborated on a Tricksta produced beat back in 2002 with the now classic ‘Cold World’ track from Late’s ‘International Rhyme Spittin EP’.
Well where do I start… This is an absolute classic from track 1 to track 30. Mixed by Tricksta and hosted by Frontlines number 1 DJ Springa this mixtape defiantly has set the pace for the UK Hip-hop world of mixtapes. After watching the recent performance of 10shott at the BBC 1xtra gig it is barley surprising that this mixtape is of such a high calibre.
DJ Cashis Kay & Mister Marlon team up with the UK’s hardest working rapper Late for what can only be described as a future classic. It showcases twenty-two tracks by The Villainous One and really does hit hard with all of Late’s underground tracks being featured here.
North Carolina definitely has a new MC that is destined to do some serious damage in 2007. This new mix from UK don’s Late & Tricksta showcases that talent well, as well as giving up some tasty contributions from Mobb Deep, Jim Jones, Papoose, Fat Joe, Uncle Murda, Jae Millz and JR Writer amongst others, but it’s some of the UK tracks that really impress.
Wolftown really are the leading force in the UK for Hip-hop music. Without a doubt they do more work in one month than most UK labels do in a year! Now head-honcho’s Late & Tricksta are back with a mix hosted by non-other than Brooklyn ’s number one rhymer Papoose.
