You're getting spoiled with these Kool Kid tapes. I was meant to be in Battersea about 45 minutes ago, so you're really getting some nice treatment over here. Yeah, you.

Chill Will F.T.E - Hip Hop Oldies 11-9-91

Side A
Side B

CHECK OUT CHILL WILL'S WEBSITE RIGHT HERE TO SEE WHAT HE'S UP TO AND BUY HIS CLASSIC TAPES (SUPPORT A MIXTAPE LEGEND!)

Here's an interesting tape to round things off, from a king in the mixtape game (in my humble opinion) Mr Chill Will F.T.E. We are all no doubt familiar with Chill Will's Master Peace mixtape series, and the 'volume #1 - volume #5' tapes that we were spoiled with, but here's one that predates all of those. I managed to buy this off Chill Will himself, as well as some of the other tapes I've uploaded recently.

For his contribution to the history of mixtapes, Chill Will needs some kind of award/recognition/knighthood. Arise Sir Chill Will, Lord of all mixtapes. Right, that's it until July. Cya then! PS - big big big thank you to Chris French from F-Your Mixtape as he is instrumental in helping get these tapes out on the internet, and he runs a great site over at F-Your Mixtape. Check it out if you haven't already.

PS - password for Side B is grimeandlime
