When It Was Rap

Dr+Dre+1987

From an alert tipster, this completely mind blowingly awesome mixtape from Dr. Dre from 1987 (yes, there is a Side A and a Side B, kids.) downloadable here.

From DJ Soul:

“First up is this Dr Dre mixtape from 1987 (which was exclusively sold at The Roadium Swap Meet) that mixes over 300 bits and pieces of songs into a 60 minute mega mix. With a little assistance from Sir Jinx (who at the time was Ice Cube’s partner in the rap group C.I.A.) Dre delivers a classic. Listening to the mix, “Boyz In Da Hood” had already been recorded so this period definetely represents the beginning of NWA.”
