Mr. Aeks and Opski Chan_Pushers and Prophets

As a supporter of local (Bay Area, CA) sounds there’s something that I find really satisfying about listening to import releases by your favorite hometown heroes. This cassette tape release limited to 100/100 comes to us by way of Hiss Tape of Finland. In 2014 do yourself a solid and peep this effort from 408 representatives (San Jose, CA) Mr. Aeks & Opski Chan. If you don’t know your South Bay underground rap timeline, Aeks has been doing dirt on underground rap joints since the 90′s – with his hand on production of some favorite classic & contemporary projects. Op has been dropping jewels on tracks since the 00′s – both on solo projects and collaborations. Pushers & Prophets is made up of the necessary ingredients for a classic underground SJ release – one part rugged rhymes & one part dope beats that will make your head nod; have you light one up or both. If you are unable to get your hands on a cassette copy you can find the digital version at http://opskichan.bandcamp.com/album/pushers-prophets

    **A real brief disclaimer: this is not a music release by KFJC. This radio station and it’s staff do not claim ownership of these songs herein.

    The idea for this collection is just to consolidate these various HipHop/Rap tracks (worthy of some spins) and get them onto a single medium – for easy to access airplay. In other words, if it were the 90′s then these were those vinyl/CD singles that were sent to the station (via promotional service from the labels and such) which then made it to the “Currents” library. Blast Beats!
