Welcome to Underground Fossils, brought to you by Dimxsk and Trylemma. The purpose of this blog is to assist in the sharing of out of print and/or rare examples of the hip hop genre. We believe that every release we post is an integral part of history and deserves to be heard by older fans as well as new seekers. We do not post or encourage the posting of anything that can be bought easily from the artist, those can be found elsewhere. Furthermore, if any artist who is featured here wishes not to share their material we will remove it immediately. Most of the rips found here were made by other people, but some of them were made by us. We are not sound engineers, so while the quality will usually be 320 kbps, they will be recorded from the source material as is. Please message us if you are an engineer and want wav files to master. Enjoy!

PS: We also want to thank all of the women and men before us who shared music in this way. Your work made our collections what they are today, and we are grateful.

10 Cent Depozit - 5$ Limit (2003)

Happy Friday, and I hope everyone had a great week.  Today I thought I'd go with something hopefully not many out there are familiar with. 5$ Limit is the debut album from a group that hailed from Michigan called 10 Cent Depozit, a reference to the value of aluminum cans in MI (see picture). The group consisted of MC's James Gwoove, Skin Graf, Slyder, and Fritzo. I don't know much about the others but I do know that Fritzo's done a lot for the indie rap culture. You can hear his voice on a few projects, notably "Fritzo Drop" on Matre's Courage Mixtape, and a verse on "Staring Problem" from the Epedos (JKC) album Stories from the Hole in My Head. Here's a video of him talking about his tour project Bring it Back, which traveled with the late Van's Warped Tour:

So, all that being said, I find this groups work hella fun to listen to. It's very much DIY garage indie rap, with sample based hard ass beats, dope rhymes, blazing turntable work and a passion for music that shows through as an infectious energy. No idea where I got this album TBH, but I love it and hopefully you will also. Check it below:
