Talk Is Cheap 2 was a classic even before it happened. The card alone was crazy enough to satisfy even the most difficult battle rap fan. One of the highlights of the day was the battle between Kadence and Demon. Both of them are deadly in their very different styles so it was a difficult one to call, but Kadence easily showed why he's regarded as "What a ting"!
Hit play and you wont be disappointed...

The year was two thousand and three and Outrageous Records dropped two mixtapes that would be instant cult classics. Both Expressions: Words Unlimited and Maximum Sentence Vol. 1 quickly became the staple many a hip hop head's playlist. I was still at Wits University at the time and sadly somewhere along the line both my disks were stolen. As a result i have been looking for copies of each one of these mixtapes for close to ten years with no success, so you can imagine my excitement when i discovered one of thee best songs from both mixtapes on Soundcloud yesterday.
To the old heads, you will love this. To the new heads, pop your headphones and learn something from an age where music was still done properly.
