Afrika Bambaataa's Death Mix.
Kid Capri's 52 Beats.
Various recorded performances at the T-Connection.
All of them, among ones infinitely more obscure,
are revered and fetishized among obsessive hip-hop mixtape connoisseurs.
While a few of these tapes sound fresh and relevant today,
the vast majority are trumpeted solely
for their historical significance and collectible nature,
furthering one's credibility in the never-ending authenticity debate.
None of these mixtapes are ones you would, in good conscience, give to your curious friend and say,
"If you still don't care for hip-hop mixtapes after this, I doubt anything would change your mind."
Enter DJ Q-Bert...
