Boomkat Product Review:
**One-sided pressing** PPU come doubly correct with this obscure and unreal darkside hip hop instrumental by Mix-O-Rap. We hear ya: who dat? It's an alias of South Carolina's DJ Blak, who, it turns out, has been knocking out tapes and records since the early '80s, working between electro, Washington Go-Go, and later, hip hop. His beguiling, super-rugged 'DMR' tape was reissued in 2014 by PPU and flagged-up in Fact Magazine's Top 50 Releases of that year, but 'For Thugz' is entirely instrumental, coming off like one of Delroy Edwards' ultra-fugged Slowed Down Funk jams or a John Carpenter track chopped by DJ Screw. Go figure, then cop it quick; by all rights it won't be here for long.
