71. The Nonce "Mix Tapes" (1993)
Producer: the nonce
Album: world ultimate
Label: Wild West 1994 / American Recordings / Warner Bros. Records
Before mixtapes were glorified zip files turnt iTunes playlists, they were actually... gasp!... tapes. And The Nonce's ode to making mixtapes and selling them is as classic a cut as there is. The technology gets more intricate, but some things never change. "I used to sell mixtapes, but now I'm an MC." Hell yeah.
