Last year, DJ Ayres and DJ Eleven made a cool-ass mix consisting of cuts from all of the classic hip-hop albums featured in Brian Coleman ’s Check The Technique Vol. 2 (order here ). They now return with a “prequel” that follows the same format only this time they are mining Coleman’s previous book. Nothing but some of the greatest rap songs ever all in one mix.
