Audio Dope: DJ Tape Deck King – Tape Deck Kulture: The Fat Tape (Stream)

WCDJC member DJ Tape Deck King has just dropped his debut, compilation, project ‘Tape Deck Kulture: The Fat Tape’ on Bandcamp featuring a dope collection of underground Hip-Hop tracks from Craig Mack, Lord Tariq, Lupe Fiasco, Papoose, FONZi NeuTRON, Da Ruckus and more!!!

The 15-track release is available via Bandcamp however this release is a little bit different from most!!!

T.D.K calls the release a celebration of the Hip-Hop culture and isn’t looking to profit from the project and has included links, for most of tracks, for which fans can purchase directly from the featured artists!!!

He has stated that “Some of tracks are available to download for free but either because they were already available for free elsewhere or because I got the rights to do so but for the other artists on there I can’t justify dropping a project for the culture and make money off there art. They deserve there piece of the pie and I’m just here to assist.”

The project also acts as a tribute to, the late, Craig Mack having been released on what would have been Mack’s birthday as well as dropping it under Mack’s, long defunct, label MackWorld to keep the legacy of both Craig and the label alive!!!

Tape Deck King’s unusual release of the project has to be applauded. In an era where DJ’s find ways to make money (at the expense of other artists) he’s treating the culture, and artists, with the respect they deserve!!!
