7 Zim hip hop mixtapes worth collecting

Long gone are the days that one could walk into Spinalong and buy a Busta Rhymes or Wu Tang album for his/her cd collection. The internet has made access to music much easier but there is still a joy in owning a physical copy of your favourite artist’s work. There is a joy that comes in going through the lyrics and song information in the booklet of a properly packaged cd. Here are 7 mixtapes in Zim hop that we would love to have owned as part of our cd collection.
