... both time and BPM wise.
I was digging through the N section of my rap records for a reason I can no longer remember and was happy to see a couple of my nerdy delights from back in the nine-what.
Natural Elements - 2 Tons
Tommy Boy Black Label - 1999
I heard Stretch play this on XL Radio, back when I had first met him, and asked him about it all excitedly. He was all: "whatever." I'm still pretty down and I still think Charlemagne is a way slept on producer.
Natural Resource - Bum Deal
Ekapa RPM - 1996
This was on every underground mixtape from 96... So dope. If not this song, than another one from the same 12". I first heard it on DJ Premier's 4 part Crooklyn Cuts mixtape. BTW, the female MC on this is Jean Grae, then known as What?What?.
New Kingdom - Good Times (Del Remix)
Gee Street - 1993
I remember that these guys album was advertised in Thrasher alot. Then I heard Good Times in a skate video... I liked it. One time at a record spot I found this 12", turns out Del did a Good Times remix. Kinda dope.
