For the last couple of years, the guys at Milwaukee's Dope Folks Records have been digging up rare, forgotten and downright obscure hip-hop from the '80s and '90s and reissuing it to vinyl. For those who haven't been following their output, they've released a sampler mix that makes it easy to catch up. Perfect for early-evening grill-outs, the hour-plus mix includes tracks from each the label's releases, including lost gems from Milwaukee's Stranj Child and Rock La Flow.

You can stream or download the mix below:
