Synopsis

Amazon.com
Responsible for many influential sides, the Wild Pitch label was at the vanguard of the second-generation hip-hop indie labels. The label first made its reputation with sides by DJ Mark the 45 King and the Flavor Unit, including Latee's "This Cut's Got Flavor." By the '90s, they had moved on to representing left-of-center acts like Main Source, Lord Finesse, and O.C. Before selling the label in 1994, Wild Pitch had big hits from the Coup and Ultramagnetic MCs. Among the seminal sides included here are Ultra's "Raise It Up," Lord Finesse's "Funky Technician," Gang Starr's "Words I Manifest," O.C.'s indomitable anthem "Time's Up," and no less than four gems (including two rare ones) from the legendary Main Source. This is a truly fine overview of the late '80s and early '90s underground. --Jeff Chang

Doesn't get better than this. Really.

"There's not a dud on this comp. You'll be amazed and entertained from start to finish. Anything less than 5 stars is underrrating this masterpiece collection of classic underground hip hop. I can't wait for the second volume."

"This Album has some real deep classic tracks, back when hip-hop was still trying to say something. Some of these songs were on my personal mix tapes that were recorded from the radio around '88 and had no clue of who they were, I bought the album for Main Source, it turns out I got a butt load of bonus tracks. I gave four stars for the variety."
