“That thing hit you, just the same as being hit with a gun! I’ve seen .22 zip guns, I’ve seen .38 zip guns. I see things you never think you’ll see on the street. I’ve seen dynamite. I’ve seen all this, man; you’d be surprised. Pretty soon, they’re going to steal the damn atom bomb!” -80 Blocks From Tiffany’s, 1985
Named after Gary Weis’s 1985 documentary on life in New York’s South Bronx is Pete Rock and Camp Lo’s latest mixtape. I’m not even going to review it really or tell you what stood out. I listened to it as a whole and enjoyed it that way too. They’re up to their usual verbal gymnastics here and the whole project has great continuity.
