    No doubt kid!!! Seems I'm misunderstood so let me keep it simple up in this piece!! I was commenting to the thread author Big D O making reference to his passion for cassette tapes!!Just so you know my man I just started using CD's in the mid 90's!! I started the comment with laughter so some would undesrstand the humor in it, none the less when I peeped this thread it made me go back a bit!! At the same time made me think of the tons of tapes I have to now convert!!!And oh by the way for some that can't afford or access that newer sh** then CD's is new technology

    Update for 09/08/2008:

    found two pretty decent pickups today at different spots....

    at one spot I found a Arrested Development "Unplugged" album from 93'....I guess it was for MTV and featured The Last Poets, DJ Red Alert, Caron Wheeler and Spike Lee....

    at the second spot I once again pd my growing R&B collection by picking up Blackstreet's 1996 album "Another Level".....

    both tapes were in great condition.....

    Update for 9/15/08:

    aaight, aaight!! I know it's been over a week since I've hit y'all wit any new updates, but here's a huge one.....

    sometime ago I made a lil' backroom deal wit a cat from a different website and we worked some things out....

    in the end the agreement was made that I would pay 20 bucks for 7 tapes and their shipping....(I chose from a nice lil' list)

    I recieved them today and I couldn't have been more pleased, this is what I got:

    Cappadonna - The Pillage (In great condition)

    Nas - I Am (In Great condition)

    Killarmy - Dirty Weapons For Quiet Wars (Case is a lil dusty, and you can tell someone was playing the tape a lot, but it still has all it's original printing and whatnot, good condition, not spectacular, but good)

    EPMD - Back In Business (Great Condition, case is pristine, except for a crack across the front, pretty sure that happened in the shipping process)

    Jeru The Damaja - Wrath Of The math (Great condition)

    Ras Kass - Rassassination (Great condition)

    Keith Murray - Enigma (the tape itself is in great condition, but the case was dirty as shit, lol)


    so yeah, the collection continues to grow...got some of the "essentials" outta the way now that I finally got that Jeru and that Nas.......I'm bout to order some more tapes from duke here this week too.....he has a huge collection that he's letting go for cheap....

    I thought it was a bargain for the quality....at first I was like "damn, 3 bucks a tape is a lil' steep considering that I've been gettin em' anywhere from free to 50 cents", but this guy's selection is nuts and they all are in great condition....It was a no brainer....

    Not as exciting as getting out there and digging yourself and finding tapes, but to get em' all at once is pretty dope....

    i gotta give alot of props to Big D O because I recognize in you the exact same obsession with diggin for music that's in me.. though I buy CD's the hunt is the same, digging through all the records in every store to find the golden ones and ordering much from the net and just expanding the collection...

    keep it up man, i would like to see a photo of your tape collection soon as well, original cassettes has a god damn nice feel to 'em.



    daily updates: news, articles, reviews, the best compilations on the net. that true skool street hop!

    r.i.p. Johan D, Kaddu, Ricke a.k.a. "Slick Rick" and the rest of the fallen soldiers - you'll never be forgotten!

    Nice to see someone who's still very interested in tapes....

    I've always liked tapes even though I don't own any Hip-Hop albums on tape, I just like making mixtapes etc. to play in the car etc.

    Keep it up

    Hip-Hop Joints:




















    R&B Tapes:








    Golden Age Tapes:
