Came across this cool mixtape via Rose Quartz from Los Angeles’ Robert Girardin of Jaws. The mix is chaulk full of early ninties Memphis cassette rap and old school, download it above and check out a Jaws track below.
Robert says: “This is a mix of cassette culture, mid-90’s Memphis rap. Two producers were responsible for the bulk of this material: Tommy Wright III & Blackout. Their psychically transcendent brand of production incorporates screw techniques, woozy synthesizers, sound collage, and most prescient: junkies pounding out dark, spare electro funk. Like kingpin Tommy Wright III incites: ‘Don’t you wanna take a trip with the 4 Corners hustlers? Don’t you wanna know what 4 Corners look like?’ Well, don’t you?”
