Omniscence - Amazin' (3 Boyz From Newark Remix - Street Version)


Omniscence - Amazin' (3 Boyz From Newark Remix - Street Version):


This is over 15 years in the making: the street version of the 3 Boyz From Newark remix of Omniscence's "Amazin'". Mixed and mastered by yours truly.

See, the problem was that a street (read: dirty) version of this remix was never released (or perhaps even created, although Om's probably got it stashed away somewhere). There was only an edited version. Interestingly though, there was a street version of the acapella on the 12", and also the remix instrumental. Once I got my hands on two copies of the vinyl (circa 1999) and two new Shure Whitelabel cartridges (circa two weeks ago), magic was the result.

This is hands-down in my Top 5 for 90's hip-hop, and a beast of a track from an artists who--despite getting a Hip-Hop Quotable in the Source when this dropped--quickly went the vanished way of so many rappers during that era.

Rottin Razkals - Oh Yeah!



Back in 1994, Rottin Razkals were brought up into the hip-hop game by fellow Illtown, NJ neighbors Naughty By Nature. Any song title with punctuation in it is for reals.

Whitey Don - Artical feat. Phife Dawg and Chip-Fu



Before Whitey Ford there was Whitey Don. He's from Toronto, allegedly, so that's cool. Phife drops one of his best verses here.

"Idiot boy, idiot boy, idiot boy...

Obscure Disorder - 2004 feat. Ill Bill & Goretex



In 1999, Montreal's own Obscure Disorder dropped their crystal-ball vision of the new millennium with "2004". Clearly, they didn't want to look too deep into the future, but "2004" is a scratch-laden, bass-heavy banger that features cuts from a then-and-still-rising A-Trak, production from his brother and current Chromeo member, Dave 1, and some guest bars by the Non Phixion team.

Somewhere near the intersection of St. Laurent and Des Pins, this one is still making speakers bleed...
