Kid Capri Blends 52 Of Hip-Hop’s Most Important Instrumentals & Breaks (Mix)

Kid Capri’s body of work speaks for itself. The New York City mainstay DJ, mixtape pioneer, and accomplished producer does a strong job digitizing his gems from the past. In 1992, the D.I.T.C. affiliate (and later Sony Records artist) released 52 Beats.

This mixtape featured the Kid cutting, scratching, and mixing legendary Hip-Hop instrumentals from the 1980s, as well as some of those 1970s breaks that Heads would hear in the parks, especially in the Bronx. Joints like The Incredible Bongo Band’s “Apache,” Spoonie Gee’s “Love Rap,” Cheryl Lynn’s “Got To Be Real,” and Cerrone’s “Rocket In The Pocket” make up this mix that will help you sweat it out this hot summer:

Props to Grand Good for diggin’ this up.
