released November 15, 2019

“Hiss-Story” uses current DJ technology to unveil a mix of a rare and unreleased 1990s Hip Hop songs and demos. 99% of these were only available on tape, and some were only obtained via dubs. Inside Small Flap(s): Shout Outs: Alyssa Nikole and all of my family (The Beacham’s and The Gash’s). All listeners of Time Travel Radio (WNUR), Redefinition Radio, and H2 Radio. As well as those who have supported me with Caught In The Middle Magazine, Scribble Jam, RedefineHipHop, Microphone Mathematics, Rage Promotions/Productions, Rhymesayers, Fifth Element and all of my other ventures/affiliations. All the artists who have sent me demos throughout the years. And, my crew, J Pratt, Foster, Shazam Bangles, Eddy a.k.a “Choice”, and so on… Also, thanks to K-Funk and the Hip Hop heads in Romania, which is who this mix was originally created for. And, lastly, to all those who still love tapes (such as my peeps J-Zone and Oxygen!)
