Dj Stef - Hip-Hop 94

When I first started checking for records online I discovered the classic and now defunct Vinyl Exchange run by Dj Stef. As I normally do, I spent most of my time lurking in the forums, reading threads and trying to gather knowledge. The Vinyl Exchange was one of the first websites I found myself checking multiple times a day, mainly because the articles were on point and the forum was full of good people sharing information...the old label scan thread introduced me to a lot of great rap records.

In early 2004 I reached out to Stef for a copy of her Hip-Hop 94 mixtape, shortly after my request and before the tape arrived I went on a 4 month trip to Europe. When I returned home I was tired of the music I had on the trip, I was excited to see a small bubble mailer had arrived with some new music. I think this tape spent the next 2 months on bump in my car, it was hard to take it out of the deck when it had so many good tracks and flowed together so seamlessly.

I ripped the tape just over a year ago, since then I've listened to it a few times I still enjoy it to this day. Thanks again to Stef for hooking this up.
