DJ Geo Roc- To The Death Vol. 4: The Return
Ok boys and girls, here is another mix tape CLASSIC from the mid/late 90's. I really don't know much about Geo Roc, except that he repped Queens HARD. I also know his career was way too short lived. Wherever he is, he needs to come back to the game.
Geo Roc's tapes, at least the two I have, are chock full of blends and skills. One of my favorite sections of this joint starts around the 4:30 mark, where Geo goes into an insane Mobb Deep section. He starts out with the original version of "Hell on Earth", and then goes on to flip different instrumentals, including several Mobb Deep beats, underneath Mobb lyrics. Highlights include the Drop A Gem On 'Em accapella over the Hell On Earth and Street Dreams beats . Shit is bananas!
It is so refreshing to hear a tape like this. You get lots of long forgotten things like doubling up, scratching and, best of all, a distinct lack of anything but rap. I confess that I like some of the multi genre mixed together stuff, but it has been beaten to death for the most part. DJ Geo Roc's To The Death Vol. 4, much like a lot of the tapes from this era, is a much needed change of pace.
Download it and post some feedback/comments.
