ORIGINAL DOPE: New label to release Ruthless Rap Assassins and Blade LPs

The brand new Original Dope label is Hip Hop Connection editor Andy Cowan’s highly laudable project to that, “classic British rap and lost American standards” aren’t – well…lost. The first two drops are UK emcee Blade’s ’93 debut (and hip-hop’s first double LP) The Lion Goes From Strength To Strength and Ruthless Rap Assassins’ Killer Album which featured the Cymande-sampling The Message. As OD say, “if it bangs, we bring it!”. Hell, I’m not just good with that – I’m ‘hood with that. Brucie bonus Ruthless Rap Assassins vid below:
