Fossils - Black In Black BoxXx

I've been listening to a lot of Middle James Co. / Hermitage Tapes style loveliness recently and my mind lurched back to this post from over nine years ago. It's a collection of tapes released on MJC in 2007 in an edition of 11. I've gone back and made some tweaks to the original rip and it sounds so much better than before so if you got it then, get this instead. Casual observers of the blog ... walk away now.

Anyway, in anticipation of me reposting this in 2020, DP dropped the following descriptions into the comments just to save me the mental effort:

"middle james co. is proud to present...4 x cassette box set

ah, it's all lies :)

is so basic it's mispronounced

it comes from MC rap battles ... when they hit the "opponent" so hard there is no coming back ... complete triumph ... drop the mic(rophone) and walk away ...
