The Tape Deck '16: Volume #6


Gotta say rest in peace to one of Brooklyn's finest - the one and only Abe Vigoda - on this special edition of The Tape Deck. Volume #6 features ONLY New York-centric rap music. Artists like Roc Marciano, Joey Bada$$, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, DMX, Agallah, Sean Price (r.i.P!), Westside Gunn, Your Old Droog, Memphis Bleek, Pumpkinhead (r.i.p.), and many, many more offer plenty of variety - yet retain that trademark New York identity. Enjoy... and as always... Turn it up!!

The Tape Deck '16: Volume #5


Been a hectic two weeks in The Life of Ivan™. Sorry it took me so long to get you a new volume of The Tape Deck. But here it is! Track 1 is a not-so-serious 2Pac remix to Kanye's "Real Friends" that got taken down by Soundcloud damn near as quickly as I uploaded it LOL. The rest of this selection is pretty solid. I dunno if you've noticed, but I've tried to raise the bar on Tape Deck-worthy tracks. I don't like lowering expectations - and you shouldn't either! Enjoy... And as always... Turn it up!!
