[Mixtape] TOKYO CIGAR - "The Other Side of ILL"

The big homie and highly underrated artist Tokyo Cigar has recently dropped his own take on all the "Illmatic" tributes that are popping up all over the net right now, based on that classic album's 20 year anniversary taking place this month. The fiftheen track project titled "The Other Side of Ill" can be divided into two sections - the first ten tracks follow Tokyo showing his rhyme skills over most of the original beats from the "Illmatic" sessions (those that have been realised), the remaining tracks with similiar tracks from the original producers - and sequenced the same way. Why this is very dope, the real treat for me is tracks 11 to 15 which features Tokyo Cigar remixing four "Illmatic" classics as well as one of my favorite mid-'90's cuts ("Shootouts") and the result is astonishing so don't sleep, this cat got beats for days and definitely deserves to blow up!
