I know a lot of cats have been looking for a copy of Smashproof's very first mixtape. So in honor of the crews upcoming debut album release, i thought it would be cool to start posting the early mixtapes for your downloading pleasure.
Tales Of the Southside Vol.1 was our very first release, pre-dating Juse's album "Gobal Casino", so i'm guessing that this dropped in mid-2005. Tales Of The Southside is hosted by Akon and featured the boys hood classic "Liquor".
Lot's of cats knocked us for not using a DJ to put this mixtape together when it initially dropped, but i think it's fair to say that this tape became a hood classic regardless. Vol.2 was never put into production because we signed Ethical soon after and he's not from the Southside, so we launched our Speed Of Sound series instead.
Here it is in all of it's glory. Humble beginnings folks! Enjoy.
