A deluxe vinyl edition of this super early rap mix that goes as far back as 1985 from the legendary Dr Dre. Layers upon layers of tracks that at the time was technically advanced and the passion he put into them is what made them classic.

The Dr. Dre mixtapes were ostensibly 4-track ‘mash-ups’ of all the newest and dopest records of the time. They had simple photocopied covers but they were raw... and they were incredible. Dre’s tapes were sold at swap meets, which were just organized yard sales held in giant parking lots, like The Roadium. However, it was at these swap meets that Dr. Dre first made a name for himself by simply adding another dimension to the new west coast style of hip hop.
