Welcome To The FreaQ Show

ONLY BUILT FOR CUBAN LINX LIMITED EDITION PURPLE TAPE

GETONDOWN.COM RELEASES THE SECOND EDITION OF THE PURPLE TAPE. THE FIRST EDITION FROM LAST YEAR SOLD OUT IN 2 DAYS SO I HOPPED ON THIS QUICK. THIS COULD VERY WELL BE THE LAST PRESSING OF THIS KIND UNLESS THEY DO A 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (2015).

AS FAR AS THE ORIGINAL 1995 EDITION,I NEVER OWNED A COPY,WELL…..KINDA LOL. SUMMER OF 1995 THE HOMIE DOJAH SOLD ME HIS BOOMBOX THAT HE GOT FROM COSTCO FOR $20. HE LEFT HIS PURPLE TAPE INSIDE THE DECK WHICH I DISCOVERED LATER. I NEVER SAW A PURPLE TAPE IN MY LIFE AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE COOLEST THING EVER. I WAS AWARE OF RAEKWON DROPPING A NEW ALBUM BUT HAD NO CLUE THAT OBFCL WOULD BE A MASTERPIECE AS SOON AS I HIT THAT PLAY BUTTON (AFTER REWINDING THE WHOLE SIDE,LOL). THE INTRO,THE BEATS,THE RHYMES JUST GRABBED MY EARS! IT WAS A MOVIE IN AUDIO FORM WITH YOUR IMAGINATION AS THE CAMERA. WHEN “INCARCERATED SCARFACES” CAME ON,IT WAS GAME OVER. “THIS MOTHAFUCKA AINT GETTIN THIS TAPE BACK” IS WHAT I SCREAMED OUT LOUD AND CONTINUOUSLY PLAYED THE REST OF THE ALBUM ALL DAY. THE NEXT DAY I MEET DOJAH AT MOSCONE PARK TO PAY HIM FOR THE BOOMBOX. HE ASKED FOR THE TAPE BACK BUT I TOLD HIM I DIDNT HAVE IT AND THE DECK WAS EMPTY. I TRIED SO HARD TO KEEP THAT TAPE LONGER BUT I HAD TO GIVE IT UP,IT WAS ONLY RIGHT HAHAHA. THAT WAS ONE OF MY BEST HIP-HOP EXPERIENCES EVER. I DIDNT KNOW THE TRUE VALUE OF THE PURPLE TAPE BACK THEN SO I NEVER GOT AROUND TO BUYING MY OWN. I WAS ALSO 12 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME SO I DIDNT HAVE A JOB OR MONEY LIKE THAT. EVEN THO ITS A RE-RELEASE,I NOW OWN A PIECE OF HIP-HOP HISTORY. SHOUT OUT TO THE HOMIE DOJAH! ONE OF THE REASONS WHY I MAKE MUSIC TODAY. SEE YOU SOON MAYNE,PEACE.
