Cut Master C – Silent Murder

It must have been 1997 when my friend brought Cut Master C’s Silent Murder mixtape back from New York City. I don’t know where he bought the tape but judging by the quality it was probably behind the counter of a bodega somewhere up in harlem World or further South on Canal Street. The hissing and saturated screams make for very average listening quality, but I guess that also authenticates the griminess that precedes mixtapes you’d cop in the street for a few dollars. Cut Master C is a Queensbridge native who’s probably most famous for two things: introducing the world to 50 Cent; and dropping mad exclusives on his tapes. Silent Murder boasts freestyles from all of the bad Boy camp’s heavy hitters (Puff daddy, Notorious BIG, Lil’ Kim, Mase, The Lox), Brooklyn’s Jay-Z and Foxy Brown; and several tracks from fellow Queens representatives Cormega, Royal Flush, CNN, Nas and Mobb Deep. Like I said earlier, the quality s pretty sub-standard, but then again so are those old VHS tapes you watch of MTV Raps…
