The Smoking Section (Masthead) Respect Our Fresh!

"Just To Get A Rep...."



We are on some Mau Mau guerilla tactics right now so pardon us as we attempt to take our rightful claim as the ownerz © Gangstarr...


It's not that we're better than any other site because there's definitely better spots out there.

It's just that we got a vision and a plan to keep growing & moving up...

If you were here last year @ this time, you've seen the growth.

If you're just tuning in, buckle your seatbelt.



While we're mentioning the Ill Kid Slick & Premo, will we not see another album from them?

According to Guru & this article, perhaps their time has come and gone...

Change is inevitable, even for our stalwarts.

No matter what they do, their reps are cemented.

Independently, Prem did some of his best work outside of the group. Case in point...



"The Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers" featuring Chubb Rock, O.C., and Jeru Tha Damaja produced by DJ Premier



As well, on one album in particular Premier boosted it's appeal without a doubt...Sort've like how you'd mess with a ugly rich chick. You think "damn this bird is ugly" but she's got money & recieves a few points on the dime scale just for that.





He made Melachi & Lil Dap's gritty/squeaky duets a pleasurable listening experience (was I the only one who envisioned Mel as being a grimey lil stick up kid before he got on with rap, strictly off hearing his voice?) His production on this album was above & beyond anything he's ever sculpted on an album as whole.

So imagine my pleasure when my man (I see you sir!) passed me the instrumental version of this joint.

In it's barebones form, listeners are allowed to take in the full scope of sounds & pieces that go into a Premier beat. The extra almost bird-like nuances thrown off in "Suspended In Time", the murky feeling of "4 Give My Sins"...

We still on that Wu shit...and I jacked this pic from somewhere.

It was too ill not to.

If I knew where I snatched, I'd give credit

But since I don't, if it's yours, get @ me and we'll pass the props.

We still gon' be on this guerilla shit though...guard your grill.

With all these offshoots, I'm beginning to wonder if the Wu just went back & signed all of Staten Island when they got on.
