Mixtape Spotlight - Tony Touch 5 Deadly Venoms Of Brooklyn

This is my favorite mixtape of all time. I bought this at Just Dance Records on University Dr in Tempe Arizona in 1998. Everything about this tape is what I love about rap music and Dj'ing. There were a lot of firsts for me because of this tape,  the first time I heard the Busy Bee VS. Kool Moe Dee battle, the first time I heard (intro beat) the "Tried By 12" by The East Flatbush Project, the first time I heard Evil Dee outside of Blackmoon, & the first time I heard "live" rap performances on a mixtape, thanks Premier.  Plus, look at the superstar dj line-up! I'm not sure if something like this has ever been done since but this classic stands firm even today in 2020. What's your favorite mix tape?
