Kamakazee – Head On (Promo Cassette 1995)

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Here is the other gem skater4041 dropped on us. It’s the Queensbridge duo Kamakazee (KL & Solo). Some of you might remember them as 1/2 of the group Screwball. This promo has been one of the tougher finds and now our journey ends. K-Def or Marley, I’m not 100% sure who is behind it but all I know is the beats knock. T.R.O.Y.’s lacing you with the goodies before the weekend. –Philaflava

MC Shan vs. Marley Marl

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Shan sets the record straight on why he wasn’t on The Symphony. Marley’s response is below but he ain’t saying nothing really to dispute what Shan said. All I know is, Marley has had way too many shady dealings following him throughout his career. Not giving credit. Not paying artists. He is a legend so most people don’t care, but I bet K-Def has stories for days too. –Philaflava

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

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

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.

K-Def – The Most Underrated

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

If there ever was a non-T.R.O.Y. compilation we’d post on here its this one. Peace to all parties involved, T.R.O.Y. forum member claaa7, who needs to just join the blog already, Al Lindstrom for hookin’ me up with most of my Tommy Boy vinyl back in the day and of course everyone else who made this happen. Check it out and be sure to thank claaa7 on his site or in the thread. –Philaflava

Intro & Interview by Chris Moss

Compilation produced by J.E.S.A. Of 2DopeBoyz, Chris Moss, claaa7 Of The Lost Tapes & Redefinition Records

“For a producer -or any artist for that matter- to articulate their vision and have it manifested sonically for the masses to hear is no simple task. Equally difficult is having that same artist verbally detail the creative processes that went into the creation of that work of art. Be it painting, writing, rapping, or beat making, describing the intricacies of creation is a difficult undertaking.

I had a chance to talk with K-Def the other day and he is one cat who can put his words down in a similarly poignant fashion as one of his signature drum patterns. To borrow the title to his latest release on Redefinition Records, he’s adapted quite well as “Time’s Change”. K walks us through a sampling of some of his discography and several releases you may or may not be familiar with. Quite candidly, this selection was chosen not only to illustrate his rightfully earned place in Hip Hop, but also to show the breadth of his catalog and talent. For a producer to have worked with Diddy and UGK and Ghostface and Ol’ Dirty Bastard is quite an accomplishment. K-Def gives readers –and listeners- a chance to hear a little insight from the producer himself and some never before shared knowledge into the origins of some of his records. Pay attention.”

01. “Introducing the Magnificent”
K-Def: “That was done in ’95 and I had just gotten the MPC 3000 hooked up with various sound modules.” This was really the first time I had started playing keys on my beats. “The drums came right from a clean-ass, Akai factory drum disk, no sampled drums!” I was looking to move my production game away from what I had previously been doing and started incorporating more technology into my equipment setup.

02. “Real Live Shit Remix” (Ft. Real Live/Ghostface/Lord Tariq/Killa Sin/Cappadonna)
K-Def: “It was a methodical hypnosis beat. I had programmed the drums and hooked the sample up with the strings and the hard timpani hits. Everyone wanted to rhyme on this beat and Wu and others were really down to get on this record. I also have this session on videotape, too. It was the original version that helped us get a deal with Big Beat/Atlantic.”

Big Daddy Kane – Documentary (45 mins)

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Another treat from the T.R.O.Y. forum. I have no idea how this turned out or when this is officially dropping but if Michael Rapaport can do a film on A Tribe Called Quest, then surely somebody can do something on the Juice Crew. Peace to fatboybrandon for the post as well as Blackout Hip-Hop too. –Philaflava
