Esham (East Side Hoes And Money). Born Rashaam Smith. Detroit. I was in high school when a dude gave me this tape outside of some grocery store in Harper Woods. I should also mention that Esham was 13 when he did this album. He did the rhymes, the beats and released it himself. And still all these years later I think it’s the best hip hop/rap album I’ve ever heard out of Detroit. Word After Word is especially amazing. Here are some tracks.

If anyone has the full album floating around let me know. Having trouble finding the tracks and my tape is long gone.
