Credible sources have told me that this mix here was done by none other than Dr. Dre. Although it cannot be confirmed, if you have some of his famous Roadium Swap Meet mixtapes, the mixing and scratching styles are very similar.

During this time of these mixes being pressed on wax, Lonzo from the WCWC was selling these underground as if they were drugs to avoid any harassment from the IRS. They eventually were getting bootlegged along with WCWC's singles and albums and they had regional attention.

It was during that time, Dr. Rock (see Fila Fresh Crew), who taught Dr. Dre the art of DJing, and who initially was part of WCWC, left to Dallas, TX to pursue other endeavors as well as become one of the star DJs to mix for KKDA - K104FM in DFW, which Dr. Dre filled in his spot as Lonzo's DJ, and the mixes followed on cassette and wax.

And these mixes were played on the air in Dallas radio by virtue of the L.A.-Dallas connection between Dr. Rock and Dr. Dre, who would also occasionally visit there to search for talent (see D.O.C., Fila Fresh Crew).
