Mr. Lif's Tape Battles

Welcome to MR. LIF'S TAPE BATTLES...

In the immortal words of my boy Paten Locke, "I grew up on tapes"!!!!

Lately, I've enjoyed a renaissance in which I've been listening to music exclusively on cassettes. This has reconnected me to those special moments that occured when I first was falling in love with hip hop. 

As long as I've been a fan of the genre, people have always battled: debating about which MC is the best in the game, which album is better than the other, etc. In continuing that tradition, I've created a tournament in which classic albums are pitted against each other, and YOU - the lovers of this music and culture - decide which will proceed to the next round. 

Join this quest to crown hip hop's best! Cast your votes below...

After another gruelingly close battle, Midnight Marauders walks away with a one point win over Low End Theory. Peoples Instinctive Travels.. did not fare well.

Now it comes down to De La Soul is Dead vs Midnight Marauders.

In your opinion, which album is the better of these two?

Winner: Midnight Marauders
