      Hey man, I’m not sure, as I never had it on wax, just CD.
      The track list I wrote out is what it says on the back of the CD.
      Sadly, I am living in Vancouver now, and all my records/CDs are still back in Ontario,
      so I have no way of double-checking this out for you.
      Does anyone else know?


  10. djfilthyrich says:

    @ DJ Over: the tracklisting you’re talking about is for Rapessentials Vol.1. the one in this blog post is rap essentials 2001, which is a different compilation. this should be called Rapessentials vol.3
