Sample Set #138: To the East, Blackwards

As the NBA Finals move back to the east coast, so do the sample sets - and with such an apt title too. What does the X-Clan have to do with the Orlando Magic. Uh... Not a damn thing. But it's about time we put out an X-Clan sample set, right? To the East, Blackwards is my favorite X-Clan album, but Xodus is not too far behind. It's a shame they never put out much more music, waiting fifteen years to drop a follow-up album in '07. Back to what seems to be a steady pace of new music, X-Clan put out their fourth album in January titled Mainstream Outlawz. Definitely worth a listen. Hopefully we won't have to wait 'til 2024 for their fifth album, right?

This set is also special because it features a better copy of The Honey Drippers' "Impeach the President". I was really stoked when I came across it because it's got little to no scratches, and just sounds a lot smoother! Enjoy! Okay, the sample set is up, go get it... And make sure to turn it up!!
