The year was 1996, I was in high school, and passing blank cassettes to friends was a way for me to obtain new music. The tape would be returned, either filled with songs from various artists or if I was lucky complete albums. My paper route did not provide me with sufficient funds so I hardly bought records back then. I remember getting a cassette tape back with Originoo Gunn Clappaz’s ‘Da Storm’ on it. It blew my mind, I’ve played that tape over and over.
Quite some years later I finally managed to get the album on vinyl (thanks Waxwell). It’s still one of my favorite hip hop records. I love the gritty Boot Camp beats (a lot of Beatminerz productions) and laid back raps. A rather dark and heavy hip hop album, definitely worth checking out.
