Today’s selection is Down South Hustlers, a compilation from No Limit records from 1995 featuring a who’s who of the southern rap scene at the time; UGK, Dayton Family, Silk the Shocker, C-Murder, DJ Screw, Eightball & MJG, Master P, Mr. Serv-On, King George and more. Obscure, underground and virtually unheard of outside of the Deep South, it still isn’t even on iTunes.
Some of the best rap of the mid-90’s, this compilation is from a time when these artists were unknown, people would ask, “Who’s Master P?”, a funny question now, but these collaborations laid the ground work that propelled southern gangsta rap to a global audience. This is from a time when Master P was actually good.
Defiantly a classic and a must have for the digital library, 90%.
