Supa Qool DJ Quartermaine - Nightmare On Beat Street

I got new mix for you from Diamond District's Supa Qool DJ Quartermaine. I'll let Q explain the concept behind this ill mix of 80's joints himself:

I came up with the title "Nightmare on Beat Street" as a play on "Nightmare on Elm Street". The main character Freddy would kill his victims in their sleep and the only way for them to avoid this fateful outcome was to "Wake-Up". I feel Hip-Hop (Beat Street) is in this situation now...

I made this mix the weekend after Gucci Mane got his "Ice Cream" face tattoo. I wanted to produce a blend tape that represented the exact opposite of where I see the culture going, and revisit a time when Hip-Hop was truly a tool for teaching, knowledge and especially Black Pride.

After readin' your post I went to investigate the aforementiond 'Ice Cream' tat.
I can only shake my head in disbelief, I've got nothin' againgst tattoo's (I've got em myself) but Gucci Mane's new ink work is nothing short of self mutilation.
And a poor display of artwork to boot.
A sad state of affairs in Hip Hop indeed.
Still, keep up the good work ya put out on here, Peace.
