Rappers I Know Podcast Volume V: “These Are The Breaks Vol. I” compiled by DJ Cipher

By January 28, 2008 June 2nd, 2010 Music, Podcasts


In 2002, DJ Cipher compiled a 2 CD breaks and beats compilation called “These Are The Breaks Vol. I & II”. I designed covers for four volumes, not sure if he finished volumes 3 and 4.

Produced by DJ Cipher for Beat Farm Fresh Produce.
Recorded Live @ The Beat Farm.

This compilation contains original songs sampled and/or replayed by yesterday and today’s hottest hip-hop & R&B artists.

All songs are from original recordings (i.e. lps, 45rpms, 12″s). No reissues or breaks and beats compilations.

    Wow! ‘Preciate this, Frank and Ciph. Brings back great memories of Ciph and Sincere’s “These are the breaks” drop on their Sunday night KPFT show.

    Ciph actually made a couple break tapes around ’97 that my boy Jordan sent to me my freshman year in college. I played them joints like non-stop my whole freshman year.

  2. Carnegie says:

    Edit: come to think of it – the KPFT drop was actually “It’s that old ish…that old ish.”
