I always like finding records that kind of fell off from the get go and get 'discovered' later. This EP is definately what I'm talking about.Early 90's gangsta rap from the west coast, great sound and production. Straight forward, but has 'that sound'. I always keep coming back to this record and it keeps on delivering...bananers.

    Did someone say Cameron Paul?


    No, but seriously I haven't heard that one...who did the beats on that?
    Any connection to C-Funk, Captian Krunch or Rated X besides the label?

    Picked up a record tonight by Rapmasters and DJ 2 on Beautiful Sounds with a real gruff sounding A side, "Backstabbers." B side, "Serve You Tough" sounds like a Run DMC bite, but is still quality. Someone has a copy for sale for 4 Euros if anyone is interested. Some dude has a Tripod page with it on his want list. That's the only internet mention of it I saw. Maybe it's real well known, I dunno. Shit is nice. Anyone got some information?

    Over the weekend I found the other BLVD. Mossee joint. FUCKING SICK! One side is them killing it over "Outstanding" by Gap Band and the flip is this face melting fast-rap "jawn" of them rapping over EWF's "Moment of Truth"!

    UGGGGGGGGGGGggggggggggggggggggggggggg!

    Hey,



    An LP I prop on here all the time is "Court's in Session" by Kaos (on Bad Boy Records, 1988; no Diddy). A couple of other "under" joints that I like are the 12" "Rhymes So Def" by Numarx (Studio Records, 1987) and "The Soloist" by Hip-Hop Society.



    Peace,

    Hmm....Speaking of Puffy but not Puffy related records I found this one joint "Nuygen & Black's Gotham City" produced by Young Lord who used to do production for Puffy. It's not bad they do some of that classic 98 gun clap steez over that Mack Rice "Lover and a Friend" loop.

    I also coped a double of "Feel It" by Sadat X & Diamond. It was from some soundtrack called "one tough cop". Real dope, Diamond D chopped up Gabor Szabo's "Look of love..." and kills it.

    How about that "Shit is Real" produced by Buckwild that features Diamond, Lord Finesse, Sadat X, and Fat Joe, the one with the real lively bassline? Classic mid 90's steeze!!! Was this song ever on vinyl, or just mixtapes? I needs a copy baaaaaaaaaaad!!!!

    Hey DJM,

    Leave me alone, maaaaaaane. One of my dudes in A-town played it for me from a mixtape once, and it was bananas. I couldn't begin to know where to find that song. Forgive me if I can't be more specific, I only heard it once.

    "Real Live Shit" the remix had like Raekwon. Actually K-Def was the dude who did cuts for LOTUG it wasn't DJ Lord Jazz at ALL! Dude did also some nice cuts for Da Youngsta's "Mad Props"


    but yo

    Shadez of Brooklyn "Change"! Is still my shit.

    Yo DJ,

    The joint I'm talking about is called "You Can't Front (Shit is Real)" by Diamond (produced by Buckwild) that features Finesse, Sadat, and Fat Joe (I think?).

    That was a single and it had a dope DJ premier remix. There was even a video...but I don't remember Sadat x being on it.

  • I would like to recommend the Chief Groovy Loo & the Chosen Tribe lp entitled "got 'em running scared". It's from 1993 and on Wrap / Word Records and includes the track "I love New York".

    Thanks to fellow Strutter JSPR for hipping me to this one...

    Go get it!

    I love NYC,

    Last year I was finding good obscure hip hop left and right, but things have dried up a little. The last really great thing I found was a 12" from 1989 by an MC named Ms. Nikki D from Detroit who I am 85% certain is not *the* Nikki D on Def Jam. The A-side "Work that Sucker" is a pretty basic use of "Hollywood Swinging" with a lot of scratching on top, but she tears the track up rhyme-wise. She just goes off about playing men for suckers with a fast, fierce and syllabically-advanced rhyme style for that time. If anyone has any more info on her or can confirm if she is *the* Nikki D or not I'd appreciate it.

    Anyone know that P-King 12" that uses the Emotions' 'Blind Alley' sample that Kane used, called "Sleepaway Camp" on Warlock? That's a nice little rekkid. There's a line about 'I shit ice Creams' that I always thought was funny.

    I like this Greensboro(?) NC track by Livestock from about 3-5 years ago. It's about... what else...

    Why??? The original was incredible on its own. Premiere is dope and all, but Buckwild's first version was just soooooooo on-point. I doubt that Premiere topped it (I gotta admit that I was biased toward Buckwild back then). Some tracks should be left alone.

    I just listened to it last night!

    Rae isn't credited but there is a dude who sounds like him... its really all about that Ghostface intro though

    GOD BODY!!!!!

    I like Real Live's whole album. It slipped through the cracks of time because the MC wasn't too "dynamic", but excellent production. I'd compare it to a sleeper like Hard 2 Obtain's album Ism And Blues production wise.

    I like Stezo's "Bop Ya Head", shit gets me every time. Stezo version 1.1 if you will.

    Peace

  • This actually belongs in the "(Bad) Obscure Hip-Hop Joints" thread.

    SO stupid, but the Cameo sound-alike kills me every time.
