Since the net went crazy over last week's joints by Flex & Red..Why not continue the love with Red Alert from 95..Oh yeah, we got this covered on the net !! Now people should understand why NEW YORK has the Rap game & Mixtape world covered !!

Strictly Cassette - DJ Lord Ron Interview

Tapemasta: Now you'll get to see what's really happening around the world & the fun part is that i really know DJ Lord Ron & he's still a REAL mixtape collector like myself..brand new blogs isn't going to be able to keep up, i told you before we was doing all this for a long time !! Happy New Year !! See you at 11 !! The REAL MIXTAPES IS BACK !!! Respect to the god for doing this interview & letting people see his collection.. is the website for Lord Ron...

Strictly Cassette catches up with DJ Lord Ron to chop it up with him about his tape collection and some of the spots he used to cop joints from. You'll be impressed to see all the original dubbed recordings from the Golden Era.

(SC) What was your first tape?
Back in the day (Los Angeles), the mid 1970's I was always recording cassette joints off the radio on an A.M. dial which was K.G.F.J. and then it became 1580 K-Day which was more hip hop/r & b driven as opposed to K.G.F.J. whose format was straight up soul, r & b and disco music. Cassettes came on the scene hard around in the early 70's because the 8-Track tape was the thing besides vinyl and reel to reel tape decks.

My 1st tape re hip hop. I went out and bought RUN-DMC's "King Of Rock" tape at Village records. Village records was located at University Village, a shopping center with a movie theatre and food joints etc., which is owned by USC here in Los Angeles.

(SC) Do you still have your old tape collection?
I wish I did have my whole tape collection but sometimes in life, we take things for granted instead of preserving. I still have a nice collection though & if I come across certain tapes now. I will snatch it up and add to my collection.

(SC) Best music store to purchase tapes (old & new)
My brother Erik and I had been runnin' the streets hittin corners all day hustlin' these ladies Nike sweatsuits that were made of Velour material. We stopped by his crib on 106th and San Pedro, the east side. He's checkin his biz and I turn the TV on and start flippin' through channels. I come across Chris Thomas, the mayor of Rap City & I've always liked Rap City better than YO MTV Raps cause BET's Rap City showed more of the raw underground artists who were not gettin' day light on YO MTV Raps.

Anyway, this video comes on and it has this dope DJ scratchin' with precision and the track has a jazzy element but dope ass bass line with drums hittin' with horns comin in and out of the track. By then, my brother Erik comes downstairs and we are locked into the groove and video visuals.

Then the rapper's voice is monotone & he's wearing black leather with a kufi on his head & I'm seeing the young F.O.I. from the Nation Of Islam in step like an army yo. This rapper was sayin something that I could relate to cause my brother Erik & I were becoming more aware of our Black heritage and hip hop was doing that at that time. Me and Erik were hittin' up Temple # 27 on Western and 45th St buyin books, products and eating plenty of fish from their store joint which was across the street from the Temple.

That was Gang Starr's "Positivity" video. I told my brother Erik, let's hit up the Slauson Swap Meet cause I wanna find that tape and buy it. The swap meet vendor who was selling records and tapes had one left and I bought that tape.

Popped it opened and that was Erik's & I soundtrack for the rest of that year yo cause me and my brother was hustlin these women's clothes and other things.

We would ride to that Gang Starr album "No More Mister Nice Guy" all day without gettin tired of it. I still have that tape to this day. Peace and rest to Guru.

(SC) What do you think lies in the future for tape collecting?
Big up to all who have the mind state of preserving history re the cassette tape. I don't see a big surge happening in the now or the future. Technology comes and goes with newer gadgets. I truly think it will be just a small group of people who have a passion for collecting. It will be a small but powerful market cause of the internet & that's good enough. Nothin wrong with a small boutique shop. That means it's real straight up and down. Organic.

Just A Thought !!

If you missed on what the 1st & 2nd generation did, that's not my fault !! I watched how the labels tried to kick the dj's to the side because of the rappers ( remember the dat )..Then the mixtapes started to pop & then the dj's had that new life again ( lables flooding the mixtape dj's with music )..I realized how much i seen & heard when it came to mixtapes, almost 20 years. Everything revolves in a circle, whether you know it or now. WBLS & KISS FM had the radio rocking with that thing we call HIP HOP !! Alot of these things need to be known worldwide, it's more than the streets with a MIXTAPE - award shows, college, tours, tv, radio, internet has now took a grasp with it..Now the blog world is making moves with it !! I was able to take my love for hip hop to mixtapes & make it a reality worldwide !! Now i'm glad to be able to contribute to it again ( Mixtape Reviews, Websites, Magazines, Award Shows, Mixtapes, etc )..If you know my bio, then you know that it's a wrap now !! If you think, that i was able to show love on my blog watch what i do next & then see how the people will go crazy !! My brother ( Sha Kim Allah ) & Sister ( NasBooks ) made me see the the light again..To both of them, thank you for being true & holding me down with the real criticism..I was going to shut my blog down after 10,000 downloads..My point was to let people know on Facebook, Twitter & Google that mixtape dj's was rocking the 90's hard - Some people tried to make some fake claims, but they know what they did & i'm letting them know i know too !! Peep the cds - Doo Wop & Spinbad ( Now what can you say !! ) Real dj's doing their thing still today !! Once again, salute to the blog brothers worldwide, cbox peeps, people who downloaded & didn't respond ( your ipo#'s come up on my computer - so i know who you are & where you are at )..Once again, thanks for all the love worldwide because now we're going to take this higher than ever before !!I might do a weekly pic with tapes/cds to make people mad with jealousy..You got to love this !!

Mixtape Legend V1 - Triple C

Tapemasta: See we're at it again..Stand up because now you get to see the full circle of what we do on a level that people "recognize"..You can copy, but remember who did it first & why..Remember we got the tapes !!

As many of you already know my man Manifest has closed down his blog onestopmusicplace a few weeks ago. This is a great lose for the mixtape community. So Manifest & OUHH decided to keep the history alive by doing a special montly post called Mixtape Legends. Manifest will select a mixtape once a month from his own vault and that one will be posted on my blog. To kick off this serie is a mixtape by Triple C which has no date on it but was made somewhere between 89 & 90. Enjoy & be educated. Also be on the look out for some more blogs joining forces to create some great projects.

B Lord Live At Sugar Hill...

Tapemasta: Soooo, tell me that alot of you had this tape in your boxes..Shout to Nick ( ) dropping this on the masses..Time to drop some live joints on you !!

Nick: With a very tolerable mix of crowd noise, bass rattle, feedback and shoutouts: this tape is live in every sense! Recorded in late ‘97, 30-minutes till they close the bar, B-Lord rocks the crowd at Sugar Hill with a flurry of over 50 cuts running through the default B.I.G block, a splash of reggae, a little old school (like Al Green old school), some D.C. go-go, and even a No Limit set! When’s the last time you heard it like that? I wonder if that after-party at the Holiday Inn on Route 428 lived up to the hype...

Here's the original link for the page..

Success Of Mixtapes Finally Making Major Labels Realize That 'Free' Can Be Useful Marketing

Tapemasta: Now if the labels start this up back again ( remember when Rocafella was doing this with each of their artists, Puffy did with Bad Boy - Remember the mixtapes with Doo Wop, S & S, Stretch, Clue )..Should mixtapes become popular again within the streets of the world & not just the internet..Remember this can be used as a double edge sword..No more A & R reps..Just mixtapes, then in turn the labels would recruit dj's again for their projects..Then these releases would come out before the retails albums..

Mike Masnick: We were amazed a few years ago when the RIAA, with the help of law enforcement, started going after DJs who made mixtapes, even though those same mixtapes were considered a huge part of the promotional infrastructure of certain parts of the music world (mainly hip hop, but certainly elsewhere as well). Of course, after shutting down and arresting a bunch of mixtape DJs, a bunch of artists just started making and releasing their own damn mixtapes, and doing so for free online. And even though we still see some stories of the RIAA going after "officially released" mixtapes, it seems that even the labels are starting to recognize that free mixtapes help promote artists and aren't worth freaking out about:

"The game favors people that can produce quality music and then turn right around and produce more quality music-which is not a given," Atlantic Records VP of A&R Zvi Edelman says. His signee, Wiz Khalifa, leveraged free, original mixtapes like 2010's "Kush & OJ" and 2011's "Cabin Fever" into the building of a dedicated fan base that helped, along with an intensive touring strategy, make his Atlantic/Rostrum Records debut, "Rolling Papers," one of the few hip-hop debuts to sell more than 500,000 copies (it's now at 570,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan) in 2011.

A batch of newcomers -- such as J. Cole, Big Sean, Dom Kennedy, Mac Miller and Smoke DZA -- has adapted to the consumer demand for free, original rap music. The philosophy is often described this way: As a reward for artists remaining loyal to them (by giving away original music), fans return the favor by buying concert tickets, merchandise and "real" albums from record labels. The result is a give-and-take relationship that keeps rappers in control of their brand and marketing, and iTunes playlists full of free albums disguised as "mixtapes." The payoff is an active fan base, which labels and management hope stimulates retail purchases. This might be about as close as you can come to big record labels officially admitting that free music actually has value that is monetized elsewhere. But, still, apparently, we need special new laws to shut down the very same marketing that they now want to use to build a stronger fan base.
