Diggers With Gratitude: DWG-022 ft. Jae Supreme

It would probably be insolent to tell someone here who "Diggers With Gratitudes" (DWG) are or better what "Diggers With Gratitude" is. Not enough that those guys gave the hip-hop independent scene a home by running the most important forum, no they also dropped super dope vinyl releases in the past decade.

Before end of the year DWG will present two more vinyl records with release #22 and #23. DWG022 in association with Iller Regime will feature Queensbridge producer Jae Supreme and his long awaited "Life Work EP".

Back in January 2014 Jae mentioned in an interview with solovibesmusic the release of his discography album "Longword" with songs and demos he produced in the past. He listed a long list of Queens MCs to be on the album like Nas, Cormega, Nature, MC Shan, Roxanne Shante, Capone N Noreaga, Screwball, Killa Sha, Infamous Mobb and others.

Well obviously that release didn't happen but a selection will now become available because of the engagment by the men behind DWG.

A: Nas - Villain
A: Sly Drama, Nas, Cormega - 40th Side Of Things
A: Villain Demo Instrumental (Swinga)
B: Capone, Noreaga, Tragedy - Half A Mill
B: Syl Drama, Cormega, KL - God Bless
B: K-Dot, Sabotage, Jae Supreme - Future Flavaz Promo

The "Live Work EP" is limited to 200 copies vinyl.
