all the copies for sale that "you don't know if you get clear or black" don't have to be sold here, but on the general release, unless your are sure of the version.

Of course it is a bootleg.
The pressing is for all the vinyl fans out there. The sound quality is actually good for a bootleg. I love to have this modern classic in my collection. Shame on the skip on track 4. Every copy has that defect on side A. Bizarrely if you play it on a cheap system it doesn't skip.

Can anyone else corroborate whether they have any black smudges on their copy of this vinyl, my local record store told me that it was an attempt at marbling but I am a little bit skeptical.

To clarfiy it is like a black smudge but within the layers of the vinyl (as it is a fairly heavy release, perhaps 180 gram vinyl)?

Cheers in advance.

exactly, just some leftover black pellets that got mixed in. Happens quite often and it's in no way a failed attempt at a marbled color, unless GZ pressed it...
My copy does not have these smudges, A4 still skips in one spot but I can get it to play without skipping when I have the antiskate set to max.

Mine also has one or two small streaks or smudges of greyish color. My guess is that when they were making the pucks to press these they put a few black vinyl pellets onto the puck. So when they pressed it out it created that unique variation. I think its kind of cool that some might have more streaks than others.

I'm not sure what some people are thinking reviewing this, for what this is, it sounds great. Better than any of my Kanye West albums and those were actual vinyl releases.

Yeah I scooped it today at my local shop and its got some problems but this is such a dope ass mixtape I had to pull the trigger even though I knew it was a boot. The shame is that a hardworking, talented, up and coming musician will not see a cent of this. Hope it gets a real press sometime. Actual Music 5/5 Vinyl 3.5/5

In the three copies I've seen, A4 skips on all of them, a definite pressing issue.

Pressing quality indeed isn't really good. E.g. on my copy A4 skips, although there is not visible damage on the vinyl.
Also the vinyl isn't cleanly "Clear", but has some weird white stains on the C/D side.

I even asked the shop where I bought this from, if they've already heard of those issues, and they confirmed that they already heard about several issues and in the end offered me a 20% discount.

Shame it's an obvious bootleg pressed from mp3.
