The Bomb Threat Tape (1995)
If ever there was an obscure, Oldominion related release this is it. In fact this would be the Holy Grail of such releases. This tape would not only serve as a launching pad for Oldominion artists Dialog (now Destro), NyQwil, and Snafu, it would also introduce the world to Shakespere (now Libretto), Bleek (now Pricy), and the world renowned Lifesavas.
I'm not exactly sure how many copies of this are out there but I know that it is rarely talked about or referenced anywhere. I feel that I would be doing Portland hip-hop a grave injustice if I didn't post this. To me it is the flagship release of mid 90's Portland hip-hop (along with DJ Wicked's first mixtape and Harsh Game For The People by Cool Nutz) and may never again shine like it did when I was a 16 year old kid, if the world were not to rediscover it.
