Diggin in the Bargain Bin

I went to Vertigo Records today and picked up a few gems in the discount bin.
Diggin the crates, I found my diamonds in the rough. I bought some because they were gems, and a few others simply because they were mems (memories). haha I can rhyme.

Yea, I got some Milli Vanilli. Definitely just for the mems, It was only fifty cents.
It has their hit Girl You Know Its True, and then three club remixes.
Milli Vanilli
Ooo ooo ooo, I Love You
I was really surprised to find Slim Thug singles at Vertigo
I picked up the remix to this on eBay, now i have the original
Miri Benari the Hip Hop Violinist.
This one is really unique. She's a violinist that hooks up with the top rappers. The violinist & rapper, duo sound really good together.
Sizzla & Bone Crusher
Bone Crusher'sNever Scared Remix
With Busta Rhymes, Cam'ron and Jada Kiss

This last one is a gem! Rockin with the Hits.
It's a compilation album with a bunch of hits like 99 Red Balloons, Girl Just Wanna Have Fun. and the biggest surprise ever... It has Herbie Hancock & Grand Mixer DST/DXT 1983 Hit single Rockit!

I picked this up and noticed a few hits on the first side, i checked out the B-Sides and as my eyes just started scrolling down. I see the word Rockit. Doooooope! I gladly payed my fifty cents. I felt like i just committed a crime because it was so cheap

I paid just over 5 bucks for all this, I need to hit up the discount bin first from now on!

He's the King, I'm the DJ - Mixtape

UNDRCRWN X DJ Jazzy Jeff present
He's the King, I'm the DJ

Yeaaaaaaaaaa I got the T-shirt

He's the King, I'm the the DJ is a tribute mix from DJ Jazzy Jeff to the late great King of Pop; Michael Jackson. I am and always be a huge MJ fan, and have listened to numerous MJ tribute mixes, but this mix stands out. This is the greatest Michael Jackson tribute mix in existence.

Jazzy Jeff added the turntablist touch to this mix. The mix sounds and feels live, as if Jazzy Jeff was spinning for Michael right in front of you. It has all the classic songs you would expect to hear then rare cut and samples from lesser known tracks.

DJ Jazzy Jeff and UNDRCRWN teamed up and released some limited edition commemorative t-shirts. I ordered mine from and it came three days later. Yeah, this afternoon it arrived. UPS is doing they job! The shirt came with a hard copy of the mix.

I'm diggin the cover art
