This label Rotation Music was hailing from California, not sure where exactly, and released a couple of interesting releases (including 2 albums, this compilation and a couple of 12''s), all in the year 2000. It seems that the same guy that is producing most of these releases is also the head of Rotation and is going by the name of Cosmic Ro.
While the MCs are not always super technical I really like the overall mood of the productions: slow beats, dark themes, etc. That type of beats was all over Izm Da Mad Soul's self titled album which I really liked, and now with this comp I realized it's pretty much there every time, no matter which emcee is rapping.
So if you're familiar with the label's work you already know most of the tracks here, they were featured either on the albums or the 12''s, or both, minus a couple of instrumental here and there. But it still forms a coherent whole that you can enjoy from a to z.
It's cassette only though. Freshly ripped from the tapedeck. Enjoy!
