One of UK hip hops most acclaimed emcee/producers, Lewis Parker is also among only a handful of artists to make the complete migration into the American rap industry. I’ve always considered him to be a far stronger producer than vocalist – 2006 saw the Ghostface collaborations Fishscale and More Fish, where he sat comfortably alongside a stellar production lineup of MF DOOM, Madlib, Marc Ronson and Hi-Tek – supporting that theory.
But LP’s flows are pretty tight to and he has been around long enough to know his strengths, and on this, the first in a double volume of official mixtape releases we are treated to a few of his early classics, ‘Don’t Forget About Ya Boy’ and ‘International Heat’. Some remixes, a funked up version of Jay Z’s ‘Get Ya Hustle On’ as well as some brand new soon to be released tracks featuring Ghostface, Raekwon, Trez and T.RA.C..
Parker has that smoldering, blaxploitation Hip ‘soul-boy’ hop sound on lock-down /ukhh.com/
This one is a great oldie hip-hop masterpiece mix by DJ Freddy Fresh. Both CD mixes have been separated into 6 audio files each. As you can see from tracklistings, many tracks have been used here so this somehow affects quality of this. Nonetheless, this is an original CD rip by me. I tried to clean it as much as possible but got something that might be closer to mp3 than FLAC. Anyway, it’s up to you to decide to download it or not. This is one of my most favorite hip-hop mixes. If somebody has this one on CD and can drag a better quality out of it, let us know, please.

DJ MK was the first UK hip-hop DJ to release regular, well-packaged and now valuable mixtapes. These early mixtapes helped him land a slot on the Capital Rap show alongside Tim Westwood (1993-1995). After Westwood and the Rap show, Itch FM saw MK hosting a show which ran for four years before he eventually left for his current weekly residency on Kiss FM. Also toured with Roots Manuva and has judged the UK DMC finals for the since 1999 and the world finals since 2004.
