Hey, ’90s underground hip-hop heads, here’s your chance to score some rare dope product, namely “the almost lost and forgotten” demo EP by Brooklyn rapper Terror Green , courtesy of the man Verge Tibbs of Heavy Jewelz Records and the rather excellent T.R.O.Y. Blog . The DJ Nastee and Audiodesiac produced demo (which includes a couple of bonus beats) is “the most requested demo in Stretch & Bobbito Show ‘s history” and has been pressed up on limited-edition vinyl that includes ill, dual artwork by Skore79 and Mark563 .
Says Heavy Jewelz Records: We used to call in to the Stretch & Bobbito radio show on the regular back in the days. Always requesting that they’d play that “Check Tha File” joint because they had only played it once & we lost the tape we had it on. So to be able to connect with D.J. Nastee a few years ago & finally being able get this full demo pressed on vinyl is like we felt that if we died tomorrow at least we helped leave the world with a great piece of music history on vinyl, hah!
