Eddie iLL & D.L. - time has come tape 2 '99

Nice tape here of indy/underground joints from late '99. To me these cats were the top dogs when it came to the indy scene in mixtapes. There were a handfull of others but I felt they were the dj clue's of the indy mixtapes. But they showed and proved with skill, exclusive freestyles, and had the shit months before you could cop it.

Great tape here. This was tape 2 of a 3 tape series. The brooklyn academy freestyle at the beginning of this tape is worth the download alone. rugged raw shit!
