Dope Demand is a brand new hip-hop reissue label bringing you the cream of underground and golden era rap on 7", 12" & beyond! All releases are fully licensed, remastered and legit. This is not afly by night operation, Dope Demand is helmed by true heads, fans who grew up on this music and have the utmost respect for the art-form. These are NOT bootlegs, we repeat - NOT BOOTLEGS! We've done a lot of hard work, and there are a lot of exciting classics and rarities to come from the DD crew. Snoozing is not advised!

To begin proceedings we take it back to '87. We enter the court of a King Asiatic (Nobody's Equal) for some of that 'genuine like Gucci' flavour. That's right - Big Daddy Kane's all-time, game changing, stripped back, battle rap classic 'Set It Off' gets the reissue treatment. This one is slays, it's easily up there with the greatest rap records of all time. We dare you to disagree. Nobody can touch this dream-team pairing of Kane & Marley Marl, this one is FIRE. Oh, if that wasn't enough, we threw the ultra hard to get instrumental on the flip. Happy? We are!

As mentioned before, these super limited 7's are fully licensed and all audio is sourced from the license holders and is top shelf quality. On top of that we got some fresh original artwork from the Atelier Superplus design house. All in all, a tight release right here that will 'cold rock a party 'til the A.M.'. These will not stick around for long! Until next time...
