Blackout Top News

Most people ain’t trying to hear it when you are shopping them. Kool G rap couldn’t sell Nas to any label and it took Serch a while too before Columbia saw the potential. Jay even started Rocafella because nobody would offer him a decent deal. KRS started his Juice crew war over the fact that Mr.Magic wasn’t trying to hear his early BDP tracks. However, in retrospect it’s always fun to hear the first steps of artists who later became certified superstars (or at least much respected). Over the years i stumbled over a couple of these demo’s on the internet and i wanted to share them with you. This is for the listeners…

Click here to download demo material from Jay-Z, Nas, Rakim, Slick Rick, Biggie, Big Daddy Kane & Kool G Rap, Snoop, Wu-Tang, A Tribe Called Quest, Common, etc.
