DJ CaSH MoNeY`s "WKiS: GueSS WHo`S CoMiN` To DiNNeR"...

Been listening to this mixtape/ mix~disc for a few weeks now, it comes courtesy of DJ Cash Money. He`s reppin` Philadelphia & is the first inductee to the DJ Hall Of Fame (correct me if I`m wrong!). In the early 1980's he came up on the Philly HiP HoP scene along with DJ Jazzy Jeff. They DJ`d parties together as the Kings Of Spin & even had a lil` friendly rivalry. While workin` together they both perfected the 'Transformers Scratch' (folks tend to forget about Cash Money`s role), which sounds like the robots from the 1980's Transformers cartoon. It`s also been said that Cash Money is the creator of the 'Chirp Scratch' as well as the 'Pee Wee Herman Scratch'. He partnered up with MC Marvelous & in 1988 they released the single "Ugly People Be Quiet". Shortly after the single they dropped the album "Where`s The Party At?" on Sleeping Bag Records, an album you`ll see here soon enough...

Anyway, that`s pretty much all I know about him so I`ll just tell ya a lil` bit about the mixtape. He definitely brings some heat with this mix, sure it`s not newly released it`s actually from 1996, but the ish is DoPe regardless! Not only does he wreck it on the 1`s & 2`s with an iLL selection of tracks, but he also brings a lil` humor with the commercials. However the best thing about this (in my ears...LoL) is the exclusive freestyles on track 6 from Bahamadia, Q-Tip, Busta Rhymes, Phife, The Roots & Biz Markie. So do ya`self a favor & check this joint out...
