Hardcore Montana - Bumpin' Down South Compilation (1997)


A nice little tape from a Street Smart affiliated group that has hard songs that represent Memphis hip hop well. The album is produced by a once household Memphis name that didn't get revived like the rest, DJ Livewire. People only seem to know his Butchershop mixes, but he did create dope original tracks for this clique right here. Some amazing percussion and techniques bumping with flutelike synths you may have heard on the H.O.H. or Big Tim or Ali Boom tapes and one by one these emcee's make it known what it means to be from Memphis. Very worth the listen.
