DJ Envy- The Rocafella Mixtape Vol. 1: The Empire Strikes Back (2001)

Cinema strikes again!! And this is the ROC striking back! This tape provided by DJ Envy came out when mixtapes was on fire but just about on its last legs. I say 02-03 was when mixtapes started becoming over saturated and very cluttered. But in 2002 when this tape came out the game was still all good.And the ROC was doin it majorly around this time. They was showing other labels on how to do it the right way! Man around this time me and my boys swear we was on Rocafella. We was Rocawear'd up including the belts!! We was always throwing up the ROC all the time and jamming Rocafella music everyday!! Those were the good ol days when Jay and his team was killing it and Dame was doin the most craziest dances on video. Plus me and my boys was poppin major tags back then, we had to stay fresh with the nicest gear then hit up Music City in VA every other weekend to cop the hottest mixtapes out!! It was our ritual and we followed it! So when yall listen to this i hope it brings u back to that time when hip-hop was still hot and exclusive!!
