Are you fed up with the flood of wack mix-CDs by no skills DJs featuring no-name artists, “freestyles” over corny industry beats, with a gunshot sound effect over every other track? What about all the 'retro' underground mix-CDs that act like good underground hip hop disappeared along with the 90s?

To the rescue, DJ Eurok is back with another banging hip hop mix CD: Back Rent. This mix packs in 25 new and exclusive tracks from hip hop's finest artists, including Ghostface, Beanie Sigel, Redman, Common, Raekwon, DJ Premier, Talib Kweli, Pete Rock, Madlib and Immortal Technique. Always repping for the home team – Eurok brings along some of the Dirty District's finest MCs along for the ride with new tracks from Head-Roc, Noyeek The Grizzly Bear, Asheru, Priest Da Nomad, Oddisee and Kokayi of Opus Akoben. Back Rent also features underground sensations Hezekiah, Thai One Davis (2005 URB Next 100), One Be Lo, The Procussions and Tai-C.

“Back Rent” breaks free from the corporate radio chokehold that decides what hip hop gets heard, and brings you 74 minutes of the best hip hop out – blowing it up for the underground!
