Re : Agallah

Agallah - Gangsta
(From Diplomats Volume 4; 2004)



Proto-waviness circa Agallah's 8-Off The Assassin to Don Bishop transitional period. I know Gangsta from the 4th Dipset mixtape but it transpires it was culled by Jim Jones from Ag's own 2004 Doomsday mixtape, which is probably the only Agallah 'tape that Datpiff don't have, scarcer than Lil' Fame's teeth in physical CD format nowadays, and the solitary downloadable link I can find to it requires a secrete & rare password that's vanished without trace like Madeleine McCann or Jeezy's Def Jam career.

Which is a real triple-threat of a bummer because the era of Agallah's career I'm mostly unfamiliar with and now feel the need to investigate is the 2004 - 2006 Purple City period between the 8-Off singles on Game Records in the early noughties and the You Already Know album in 2006, and this Doomsday mixtape appears to be that timespan's essential release from what I'm reading. Since I'm shit outta luck and already out for a duck with that mixtape, where do I even start with the myriad of Purple City group 'tapes he dropped with Shiest Bubz & Un Kasa during those 2 years? Other than Gangsta the only other Ag' joint I fux with from that period is It Ain't Easy, a song which radiates with wrestling entrance theme swag :

Agallah & Shiest Bubz - It Ain't Easy
(From Purple City Byrd Gang 12"; 2005)



Help me out here, rap dudes! Preferably by re-upping Doomsday, but I'll take pointers on the Purple City mixtapes too.

I'm pretty sure I have almost every agallah mishaps on my external hard drive. I'll upload doomsday later today. Realniggatumblr actually put me on to a dip set stan site that had a ton of Don Bishop material from the purple city era, but can't remember the web address.

I'm sure I've got a Purple City song on some promo cd somewhere, I'll have a look.

Thanks, Anon. That'll probably be the Justdipset blogspot. Great site, but a lot of their old links like Gangsta are Rapidshare and, thus, totally undownloadable now.

Thanks, Done.

My bad, the Anonoymous post was mine. Also, I meant to say I have every "mixtape", not "mishap". lol And yeah, I checked and it was justdipset, but I think I just used that as a reference to download Agallah's catalog. But I'll check what I have when I get home later homie.

No homo, but you've always been in my top 5, Blast. Muchas gracias.

Thanks too, Done.

Blast said...

Ha. Right back at cha babe.

This shit reminded me to listen to "Pull Ya Hawks Out" aka "Tear Da Club Up '97" for 2006 Puerto Rocks in tall tees. So, thanks.
