Esham’s Boomin/Boomin words from hell (RLP 1989)


Esham began rhyming when he was only 13 years old. The image on the left is of his first release, Esham’s Boomin. This is an ultra-rare “Red Tape” which is hard to find today, and it has 3 exclusive songs on it. (One of which, watch ya back, appears on Bootleg Vol 1.) The one on the right is his better known re-issue. The 3 “Red tape” tracks were cut, and the track-list was changed up.

Along with one of the first Pro-weed songs of the hip hop culture, “True”, these albums were loaded with classics such as “Ol Wicket shit”, “My 9 Rhymes”, and “Word after word”. Even back then however, few people knew what he was onto, and even less do today.

    I had that fucking tape and some asshat stole it when I had a party, being red and all I guess it was just easier. I hope whoever stole it has raging hemmoroids and herpes in their eyes…That tape has songs on it that the reissue doesn’t have, one of my favorite songs in fact, Watcha back

    And you can look on ebay for the 1990 version, but be prepared to pay upwards of $300 bucks!!! I was gonna rebuy it, but man, fuck that shit! I’ll keep listening to my dubbed warped one
