J.Bo & Southern Hospitality Present: Rap & Bullshit 101

Southern Hospitality has teamed up with our homie J-Bo who we get crunk and party with on the regular, but who also runs the essential J-Bo Tapes blog where he dusts off lo-fi electronic classics on cassette and polishes them up into mp3 format for the 21st Century. For all your jungle/drum n bass/garage needs make sure you check out the site.

For now, though, here’s what the man himself had to say about ‘Rap & Bullshit 101’:

“The long overdue collaboration between J.Bo and Southern Hospitality has been a true labour of love, just over a year in the making… and even now, the only way to agree to a final tracklisting was to start planning volume 2 (and 3!) immediately. A representation of one of our favourite sub-genres of all, these are the jiggy jams that brought fun and females back to the clubs. Featuring such luminaries of the genre as Fabo, Jigga, Kells, Luda and Diddy in a musical celebration of all that is trite and trivial, frivolous and flagrant.  If the Fresh Prince is still looking for “a groove that soothes and moves romance” this ‘Summertime’ then here are 22 of em.  Long live ‘Rap & Bullshit’.”
