DJ Spanish Fly - 'Variety Mix 22'

Here's an interesting article on DJ Spanish Fly...

...apparently a real rap pioneer, I only heard this guy through the Twankle and Glisten 'For the Weed Smokers' mix tape...his track 'Smokin' Onion' was all sortsa lo-fi and weird, so I guessed (correctly) the rest of his stuff would be similar.

A lot of this old 'dirty south' rap appears and disappears on the internet very fast for whatever reason, and it was nearly impossible to find any of Spanish Fly's legendary mix tapes from the late 80's/early 90's.

'Variety Mix 22' seems to be a favorite. I think the coolest part of his story is that he would literally re-record his own songs every time he made a mixtape because he didn't have the technology to do otherwise. Also, dude didn't even have a 4-track--just two cassette decks. Badass.
