It’s been 25 years since the release of the critically acclaimed “Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto” album. This limited edition cassette marks the anniversary of the album that put ED O.G & Da Bulldogs on the Hip-Hop map with songs like “I Got To Have It”, “Bug-A-Boo” & “Be A Father To Your Child”. The album produced a number one record on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart and two Top 20 singles to follow. This cassette features two unreleased bonus tracks, the thought provoking “Letter To The President” & the anti-establishment “Lik A Shot” that didn’t make the original album due to samples and controversial lyrics. All songs produced by Joe Mansfield. Liner notes by ED O.G featuring alternate artwork.

A 14-track journey produced entirely by Creative Juices’ IDE.
Cassette Store Day double features! “Choosing BBE’s contribution to Cassette Store Day must have been the easiest decision in our 20 year history. Production legend J Dilla’s legacy is still gathering momentum, his influence reaching far beyond his chosen genre of hip hop. His weapon of choice to share his music throughout his career? Tapes. Lots of them. Our close friendship with Dilla resulted in BBE releasing not only his debut solo LP ‘Welcome 2 Detroit’, but also his final, posthumously completed masterpiece ‘The Shining’. For Cassette Store Day, and for Dilla, we are proud to present both trailblazing LPs on one single, strictly limited cassette tape. So open up the case, slide the tape into your Walkman, sit back and enjoy 2 hours of the most iconic hip hop of all time.” – BBE Records
