LL Cool J – Year of The Hip Hop (prod. K-Def)

The is just unfuckwitable. We’ll have the mp3 for you once it’s made available (link below). For now peep the high quality rip and check out the back story. –Philaflava

Back in 1994 K-Def was working on some beats out of the B Room in Marly Marl’s House Of Hits when LL Cool J walked in on his session and said “let’s make some tracks together.” Uncle L had always wanted to rhyme on a track using the famous ESG breakbeat ‘UFO’, so he had Def lay it down with some scratches and then went to town with the mic. Both thought they had a sure fire hit on their hands but unfortunately it was never used.

The DAT tape of the studio session was feared lost for several years before it eventually turned up stuck behind a radiator! Now, 17 years later, K-Def and Slice-of-Spice are set to release ‘Year Of The Hip Hop’ on vinyl.
