Who wouldn’t enjoy some freestyles on a Friday?
The disc came out in 1996 but says all material was from 1994. Featuring freestyles from RZA, GZA, Shyheim, Freddie Foxx, Original Flavor & Jay-Z, Masta Ace, Fugees, Kool G. Rap, Alkaholiks and many more.
EDITORS NOTE: Two days late, but it’s a bonus so technically it’s not really late 🙂
I was feeling a little guilty about being so late with last weeks Wu-Wednesday that I decided to put together a little Shyheim bonus RnB feature for you.
A premature RnB group, one-third Marques Houston. They later changed the group name to IMX because “immature” was no longer fitting their personalities. Remix has two verses from Shyheim.
Wu-Tang’s smallest artist. I always wished that Shyheim kicked a verse in TLC’s “Waterfalls” after making an appearance in their video. He had a great career going as a youngster, music, movies and TV. Then in 2001 got sent off to prison for a couple years. I know Shyheim helped form Bottom Up music and is about to drop a new album with Dom Pachino of Killarmy. Will 2011 be his comeback year? I hope so.

If you’re like me, you have a weakness for posse cuts. There is something about the pairing of different emcees together that always sparks my interest. Sometimes the collaborations are immaculate, sometimes in-congruent but many times they’re just flat out intriguing.
Posse Cuts can create careers in just 16 bars. Verses become memorable, some undeniable classics like Kane on The Symphony, Busta on The Scenario or even Prodigy on I Shot Ya (Remix). These records define an era. When an emcee went for theirs. When there was no last-minute editing so you don’t get out shined on your own shit. If you did, you did back then. Friends, favors and fun. That is what made up the posse cuts of the 90s. Whether you were label mates, crew members, weed carriers or just fans of a specific artists you reached out because you wanted to create something, not sell a record.
After the jump are 5 tracks that capture everything that you’d could ever want from posse cut. No these aren’t the greatest of them, some are truly great though. These are 5 unique posse cuts that remind you just how much fun hip-hop can be.Â (more…)
Synopsis: 6 part mixtape with 62 independent and underground hiphop cuts from the 90’s, including unreleased tracks from Natural Elements, Foul Play and Verbal Hoods. All tracks non-stop mixed, split with trackmarks and tagged with track information.
–and to all you Serato haters, vinyl were used everywhere, except from the unreleased tracks!
Natural Elements – I Got Your Heart: Best rip out there upped by nythugism on the TROY forum.
Mister Voo – Return Of The 45 (Relax Your Mind) *Taken from the leaked Tommy Boy CD from 1999, widely available online.
Foul Play – Boo Yah: DAT rip fully mastered, not the hissy version from WKCR.
Foul Play – Nightfall (Demo): Different from the one available on Cocaine Blunts, punshier beat and different vocals. Guarantee you won’t have heard this one before!
Foul Play – Black Clouds (Demo): Full rip of the demo version, not the one of Wild Pitch Blends. This is the same version that was played on WKCR, but better quality.
Verbal Hoods – I’ll Be Damned: Taken from the 5 Deadly Venoms CD, but I’ve edited the last chorus to make it clean from other cuts.

â€œMister Cee goes in hard (Aquaman style!) for this comprehensive and really fascinating career-spanning Jigga collection. Starting way back with the Big Jaz collabs and freestyles, Cee forgoes chronological worries and moves in for the kill, dropping track after track of classic Jigga, from “Hawaiin Sophie”(!) to “Hard Knock Life.” Even the most studious of Jay fans will find new shit on this one: rare early tracks, remixes and unreleased freestyles from Cee’s vault all surface here. You know this shit is made by an insider when there are tracks with titles like “Freestyle â€“ Live at Big Daddy Kane’s Movie Release Party at The Ritz (1993).” Considering the age of some of these, this sound quality on this mix is pretty incredible. 36 tracks total. Recommended.â€
