This set of tapes are original bootlegs straight out of the 36 chambers of Shaolin. If you're looking for that old skool Wu-Tang feel, here you have it. This mixtape was a freebie in a magazine sometimes in the mid-ninetees. The mix contains Wu-Tang material (at that time unreleased) mixed and remixed by the RZA himself.

Props to http://rekordzonwheelz.blogspot.com for the original upload.
Some info: (note that the cover is from the Wax People cd which is kind of a best of volume 1&2 of the Hemp Lords series).
"After I did the original Hemp Lords in 1996 I didn't think that anyone would like it except for me," said Eddie Def. Wrong! People loved it and soonafter the handful of Hemp Lords tapes manufactured started circulating they quickly became much coveted collector's items by those who dug Eddie Def's DJ skills and could relate to his musical landscapes, accentuated by a montage of diverse pop cultural references. Using as his tools; two turntables, a mixer, a basic Gemini 4-second sampler, and a four-track Eddie spends months at a time carefully crafting each Hemp Lords volume. The opening segment of Hemp Lords II (CD track #1) for example includes about 150 different noise/sound sources. "I like to keep it moving real fast with just little bits, like bam bam, hitting you from the left and the right like a Mike Tyson fight," says Eddie whose style is in the tradition of the 1980's megamix records. "I'll take a horn, a snare, a scream, a guitar, a moan, a cartoon, or I'll flip an orchestra backwards. I love sounds and I love manipulating them or using them out of their original context," enthuses Eddie. "Cry Baby" for example contains a sample of his daughter Guilianna crying."
As requested by Tim. Mixtape by Rip One from the Innernational b-boy collective straight from Los Angeles. Lots of thought put into this mix, coupled with advanced technical skills: plenty of scratching, multi-tracking and movie drops throughout.
"Buckle up and brace yourselves for Sparkle Motion's third and final installment of their hugely popular "Flight School" mixtape series. If you've flown with them before, you already know what to expect: first class 80s funk, soul and R&B breaks, obscure and familiar, all mixed together with superior turntable skills. Download and prepare for take off..."
