This mixtape was done in the early 2000s as music for the Topdog/Underdog play that took place at UCSD. One of my acting homies, Owiso, told me he wanted classic hip hop the whole way through. So I cooked this up for him. It’s tracked for pre-show, intermission, and post-show. At one point, I had Owiso and the other acting homie, Geno, come through to my bedroom studio to lay down some lines from the play. I weaved a little story of my own with it, and thus, Top This Underground Mixtape was born. This mix the range of hip hop from late 80s to ’97. Features Common, Digable Planets, Aceyalone, Xzibit, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Hieroglyphics, and much more! Enjoy.
