LEMS - Ping Pong Groove (2009)

Just released five days ago, from "GREEN PIECE" records. This album maybe one of the BEST mix tape of 2009, that i've heard coming out of Japan of 2009! Mixed to perfection! Jazzy sport has been doing mix tapes since day one, but it seems they have fallin off a bit, this year. LEMS just puts "mixtapes" back into perspective, so Jazzy Sport better wake up!

Don't get it twisted though, LEMS makes his own beats too, and they are far from WACK!

Word of Advice

We don't upload any of the links in this blog because, their are too many floating around anyway, and it's a waste of time. Some do it for points, while some do it for money. Well we don't do it that way here, as long as we can share and let you know what's cracking with those albums we're happy. These guys don't get a lot of exposure, and for damn sure some of them will never graze the mainstream air wave. By the way not sure if anyone actually read this stuff, but if you made it this far, The Beat Dangler thanks you.
