A compilation of tracks from a bunch of underground tapes by M-Town legends like DJ Spanish Fly, DJ Squeeky, Blackout, DJ Paul, Juicy J, Tommy Wright III, DJ Sound & DJ Zirk.

"Ask DJ Spanish Fly to define the early Memphis sound and he'll say, "It was a wicked, 808, slow, dope groove," just like his own music. Add to that his scattergun, repetitive lyrics, heavy basslines and gangsta lean and you pretty much have a definition of early crunk. No one could claim that Spanish Fly invented the genre (he certainly doesn't), but he made a significant contribution to its formation, not least by introducing an essential track to Memphis — 'Drag Rap' by New York group The Showboys. It's from there that the triggerman beat is taken, which also became an absolute staple of New Orleans bounce."
