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...
