Rising South East London rapper J-Racks is lighting up the Drill scene. He tells us all about his favourite mixtape of all time…

What’s your favourite mixtape ever?

I have quite a few but the first one that comes to mind is Giggs – ‘Who Said That’ 

Why is it so significant to you?

It came out at time where I was a big fan of UK rap but there weren’t a lot of projects as there is now, so a good mixtape would hold more value than it would now.

Were there any artists or producers that you discovered through this tape?

Not who I wasn’t aware of already, nah.

Where exactly were you when you heard the mixtape for the first time?

I was in my room just blazing it loud, I’m sure my neighbours must’ve heard it as much as I did.

Did it come into your life at a significant time?

This was during my childhood so yeah, that part of my childhood will always be associated with that tape.

How did the mixtape cover make you feel?

I remember liking it back then, thinking this is gonna be hard. I can still see it clearly in my head now.

Describe the mixtape in three words?

Hard, old-school, impressive.

What song is your personal favourite?

Probably the intro, it set the levels straight away.

If you could put a price on this mixtape, how much would you pay?

Back then, probably 1p cos I wasn’t trying to spend at all. But now I wouldn’t mind dropping £100 for it to show support.

Did you have a physical copy?

Yeah and I wish I knew where it was.
