In a collaboration with Soles of Mischief and The Flyer Vault, Toronto-based DJ Filthy Rich has dropped his latest tribute mix. In honor of the 20th anniversary of Yasiin Bey’s debut solo album, Black on Both Sides, the mix features album tracks, loosies, and the samples used for the album’s production.
“I had to put out this mixtape in tribute to one of the most influential albums in my life,” Filthy Rich said on YouTube. “In 1999 when the jiggy era of hip hop was reigning, Rawkus Records and Mighty Mos were carrying the torch for that real underground hip hop sound. This classic LP covered a wide range of topics including the global water crisis, the shady music industry, love, police harassment, and even an ode to his parents.”
