UNRELEASED 90'S REMIXES - SOULMAN (PT. 1)

Okay, this is my first attempt at dropping some exclusive audio on this brand new blog of mine. If you like and want more, holla at a pimp and I'll keep diggin' old stuff out of my moldy ass closet full of old stuff. If I don't hear from y'all I will just continue sitting on my ass eating these Acme apple struedel bites and watching VH1's Hip Hop Honors for the 54th time (y'all do realize that Kane killed it, right?). But I've been sitting on tapes and tapes of joints that have only been heard by a handful of people, so it's like what the hell- might as well put it out there for whoever may be interested.

We'll start off with this little remix of De La Soul's "Stakes Is High" that the kid did back in, oh, what year was that? '95? '96? '97? One of those damn years, I don't even remember. I just recall that a lot of fools was fiendin' for a copy of this whenever I played it for them. The plan at the time was to do a 12" with about four remixes of rap joints that were somewhat popular at that time. Of course, I got bored with the project and never finished it up as planned.
Looking at how much rap has changed recently it's almost hard to believe that the original version of "Stakes" was actually getting radio spins and even made the Power 99 "Nine At Nine" here in my homebase of Philly- meaning that mad kids were calling in and requesting it for the countdown. Sadly, I can't see any hip hop that sounds even remotely like a De La Soul record getting that kinda love from the skreets these days. How the times change...



And we'll back that up with another lost Soulman remix, this one being "Runnin'" by The Pharcyde. Another one that went over pretty well when I first hooked it up. I'm taking these joints right off of hissy old cassette tapes, so please excuse any lack of high fidelity. You know I likes it grimey anyway!
I hope somebody out there gets a kick out of these fossils I found in my tape boxes. I got some others I hope to drop on y'all soon, some with interesting stories behind them (hint: Tommy ain't my mutha f**kin' boy).
