The Third Unheard (Connecticut Hip Hop 1979-1983)
Since it finds itself between New York City and Boston, hip-hop wise, Connecticut is a lost soul and has been overlooked for years. Well, luckily for you, Stones Throw's Egon is from Connecticut and he's not going to let you forget what was going on from 1979-1983 in the Nutmeg State. Connecticut Hip Hop: 1979-1983 features the boom bap of the era from Mr. Magic, Pookie Blow, Cuzz Band, and The Outlaw 4. While hip-hop was burgeoning in NYC the same flowering was going on just across the GW Bridge. Ya'll have to thank those beat-diggers over at the "bomb shelter" for making this possible by copping your own copy.
