Man I've listened to those records so many times through. Used to blast it in my ol' maro with a sub before it uh... got smashed.
I always wish they kept it going.
Oh wtf how did I miss Equinox!
Yeah man, Hypnotical Gases, Bring it on, 3-2-1, some dope classics on those 2 LP's. I'd heard of Equinox when I was well into them but never had the privilege of hearing it until years later after I'd stopped listening to rap properly, which is a shame really as I found it hard to rate. I'm sure I would have liked it way back then.
Does anybody here remember an old mixtape made by DJ Spinbad
around the mid 90's which had a NY theme? There were lots of NY acapellas placed over NY producer's beats, like KRS-1 over Mobb Deep beats etc. It might have been called 1-900 Spinbad, possibly???
The reason I ask is because there's a very dope Organized Konfusion
'bring it on' mix on there. Here's a link to the track but unfortunately who ever uploaded it has a bad sound quality version of it, with lots of hissing. I'm looking for a clean version of it as I still feel its one of the most rugged dope sounding hip hop tracks ever. Pharoahe's style and flow is like some kind of AI computer loading up, its way ahead of its time. Check it out (but try to imagine it without the poor sound quality lol) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GaIXGXULtA
