Rap Treats #8: Dr. Dre "U Got Ganked" (Mixtape)

This is Dr. Dre's "U Got Ganked" mixtape from 1987. It's in 2 parts, sides A and B, because it was recorded off a cassette tape. This tape was made for some dude named Steve who sold mixtapes at the Rodium Swap Meet (Dre even busts a freestyle about him at the beginning of side B). The music on here is straight classic material as Dre cuts up future anthems by EPMD, MC Lyte, Public Enemy, BDP, Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, Kool Moe Dee, Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Too Short, King Tee and of course NWA.
