[MIXTAPE] dj espionage - Spring '96 (1996)

Ah, Spring 1996. The indie hip-hop scene was starting to head towards its peak (Blackalicious' "Melodica"), major labels were still releasing projects by random crews (Ill Biscuits on Atlantic?), and college radio was live. Here's a rip of a pure blend-tape from this era:

The playlist is too long to list here (27 cuts on a 45-min side A, 21 on side B), but check the playlist here. A mix of live major-label joints (Pharcyde, KRS, Das EFX, Mobb Deep) and heavy balance of indie joints (J-Live, Tony Da Skitzo, E.C., Rubberoom).
