Gudtyme Presents Lunchroom Battles (Desperately seeking Vanessa) (Mixtape)

After dropping a couple of true gems, Gudtyme drops off his Lunchroom Battles mixtape.

He says about the compilation:

One of the earliest and fondest memories that i have of hip hop is going on a school trip in junior high 145. We went to the Hayden planetarium as most schools did to enlighten the urban youth. Along with a roast beef hero that i had for lunch. I had a fresh pair of AA eveready batteries in my Sony Walkman; and a new cassette tape with Slick Rick and Dougie Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew Live in Linden Projects. They were doing this rap routine that turned into their classic songs “The Show” and ” La Di Da Di”. This tape was special to me; Because it was one of the few tapes circulating that included the explicit version of the Vanessa Williams verse by Slick Rick. This was after she had nude photos of her posted in hustler after winning Miss America. As a young pubescent noob anything porn related was golden; i couldn’t get my hands on the mag to see the pictures, i had to settle on hearing Slick talk about Vanessa using her “smarts” him had me captivated. This version never made it too commercial radio neddless to say. and as that which happens to all treasured cassette tapes at that time my shit got stolen. I have tried to be aware of when I had a classic piece of music or freestyle that needed to be dead stocked and i have been “Desperately seeking Vanessa” ever since i lost that tape.

….

The term “Lunchroom Battles” refers to the time we spent at lunch either banging on the table and saying rhymes or arguing at lunch who was the best rapper (Grand Master Caz Vs Kool Moe Dee), group (Cold Crush vs Furious Five) , breaker (Crazy Legs VS Frost Freeze (RIP)) , grapher (Phase 2 vs Dondi) , or DJ (Bambatta vs Kool Herc)
I wanted this mix to be reminiscent of the old school pause tapes, that I use to make from listening to 98.7Kiss or 105.9 Supreme Team show, or Mr. Magic and Marly Marl on 107.5fm. I wanted that feeling I use to feel seeing artist like Big Daddy Kane or Stetsasonic live on stage. I wanted to capture the creative and story telling aspect of hip hop that has been diminished in today’s material centric HipHop world.

Tracklist available here. Props to Dallas Penn for the heads up.

    When I interviewed Mainframe, way back in 2010, before Danny Brown really popped off (pre-Hybrid), he told me about a Danny Johnson record. It was gonna be a purple baby produced by you and Mainframe. Is there anything coming from that?

    Blu: The purple baby. Yes, the Danny Johnson album will be one of the six that are coming out on New World Color. Hells yeah.

    So Danny Brown + Blu + Mainframe?

    Blu: Well we’re just got production on it. Yeah, Johnson&Jonson produced it and it’s all Danny’s raps.

  26. Danny Ocean Says:

    any cosign of a standard fuckboi rapper such as Freddie Gibbs, Trae The Truth, or Thin Sean should be accompanied by a noteworthy track, for reference.

    I listen to EVERYTHING.

    I don’t wait for someone to tell me to listen to. I find it for myself.

    And it’s not much of a commitment to click a few buttons for a download or spend a few minutes browsing a mixtape.

    You obviously don’t love this shit like I do….but I ain’t mad atcha.
