30/09/15: All Eyez on Me

One eye stares from the Stanhope Street gravel. An enigmatic shard. Research reveals this to be All Eyez on Me, "the fourth studio album by American rapper 2Pac, released February 13, 1996 under Death Row Records", which was "the first double-full-length hip-hop solo studio album released for mass consumption" (thanks, Wikipedia). Of those two discs only one – or rather, part of one – was to be found. Unlikely to play.

28/09/15: Anonymous CD-R

Completely anonymous CD-R on Totteridge Lane, Whetstone. No writing whatsoever. Its light battering cannot stop the disc emanating a pleasing “rainbow” effect.

22/09/15: Stanhope

Drain cover, Stanhope Street again. There's writing, but it's a long way from being readable. Unlikely to play.

14/09/15: DataLife CD-R, Stanhope Street, Camden

Stanhope Street continues to yield exotic treasure with astounding regularity. As a brand name "DataLife" seems almost poignantly appropriate, in this day and age.

06/09/15: BlackBerry User Tools

North Finchley car park. I owned a BlackBerry a while back. It was the best phone I ever had. I keep reading that they are going out of business. A gloom article HERE concludes: " up those BlackBerry phones while you can, BlackBerry diehards. There’s no guarantee they’ll keep making new ones forever."

01/09/15: Common – Be

Mornington Terrace, NW1. Hard to read. I thought it said “Common BC”, but, in fact, it says "Common Be". Over to Wikipedia: "Be is the sixth studio album by American rapper Common, released May 24, 2005 on GOOD Music and Geffen Records. Primarily produced by hip hop artist Kanye West, the album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 album chart with 185,000 copies sold in its first week." Unlikely to play.
