Crusaders for Real Hip-Hop – Strictly 609 rare & unreleased EP

Not everyone knows the Crusaders for Real Hip-Hop. While Tony D was an underground hero for many of us, he never broke the mainstream, and this posse album dropped with little fanfare. I remember copping it based on the cover and group name, before I even realised it was a Tony D project. It remains a pretty obscure piece, albeit with some absolute gems on it. I was wearing my OG Crusaders promo T-shirt out in Dubai last year and Stretch Armstrong, seeing the Profile Records logo on it, told me he’d never heard of them.

Now is a good time to get familiar. Our man PQuest, who did the recent OPP was Adam’s Nightmare T-shirt we repped here and has put out some great reissues from the likes of Blaque Spurm and Funk Family – you can cop what remains of the goodness here – has been working behind the scenes to source some unreleased Crusaders material, and is about to drop a two volume vinyl project, all produced by Tony D. You can pre-order the first part now, and the first 70 orders get a free postcard. Strictly limited, cop before it’s too late.

Reckon it might be impossible to make a bad song outta that Southside Movement sample.
