Rare Joints: The Source Magazine – Mad Flavor Vol. 1
A compilation called Mad Flavor Volume One from The Source Magazine. Not to be confused with those The Source Presents Hip-Hop Hits albums, this promo only CD dropped circa 1991, packaged with an issue of mag. I can’t for the life of me remember which exact issue it was, though. Kept the CD in my files and thought I’d share.
Some familiar joints (2Pac “Words of Wisdom,” Del the Funky Homosapien “Dr. Bombay”), a few rarities (Hard Knocks was a duo out of The BX signed to Wild Pitch, Pretty Tone Capone was part of the infamous Azie Faison’s MobStyle rap group ) and some oddball picks (Jodeci. word? not without any Rae & Ghost in the mix buddy). Strangely, there isn’t a single Almighty RSO song on here. Go figure.

Note: The Cookie Crew and Two Kings in a Cipher songs are actually #9 and #8, respectively, in the sequence.
