Mr. Thing 1990 Mix

This is a mix of all 1990 hip hop from DJ Mr. Thing formerly of the Scratch Perverts. Not sure where I got this, but this was part of the 'Thing Thursday' mixes he does on maybe a radio/podcast show in the UK. This one gets a lot of play in the gym because of how up-tempo 1990 was. Enjoy
