BLUNTS VS. SOUL: DAY FIVE


Major Stress: A Day In The Stuy
From 12″ (Norfside, 199?)

Last round. I brought out the Grade A Heat: Mysterme’s “Unsolved Mysterme”. CB unloaded with Major Stress and their “A Day In the Stuy”.

Noz writes: In between saving the then fledgling Fugees from getting dropped from their label and becoming the choice producer to turn a once Nasty Nas dope again, Saalam Remi started this oft overlooked indie label. This is the B-Side to the “More & More” 12″ and features Major Stress (who […]

BLUNTS VS. SOUL: DAY FOUR

Microphone Terrorists: No Food
From 12″ (Terrorist Entertainment, 1996)

On the fourth day, SS brought the Perverted Rym Throwwas out the closet with their “MCs Ain’t Saying Nothing”. CB came back with Microphone Terrorists’ “No Food,” last seen selling for over $60 (!!!) on eBay. Noz drops the science:That’s right! More gravely voiced faceless & unknown MCs over hot beats! Not a lot of info about this record, except that MCs C-

Lowdown and Born Majestic trade verses over a Butta Fingaz (talk about your cliched circa 1996 underground hip hop names!) beat. […]

Scott Lark: The Movie
From 12″ (Contract, 1996).

Day tres and Cocaine Blunts and I are still slugging it out. I hit CB with the ha ha and the hee hee in the form of Chicago’s Mental Giants and the slept-on “AK’s Groove.” CB’s coming with Scott Lark, representing one time for all the heads in NJ:You knew I had to represent for Trenton. Scott himself has an bizarre style that sounds a little like he’s constantly blowing his nose. It’s definitely an acquired taste, but I kinda feel it. It’s producer […]

Kaotic Style: Represent
From 12″ (Beat Scott, 1994)

Opening round was definitely cool. For the second day, I went to LA and brought back a sack of “Mescaline” from the Ill Brothers Project. Cocaine Blunts did it up NYC style with Kaotic Style and “Represent.” Noz sez:This is from the (debut) “Diamond In Da Ruff” EP released by later Nervous/Wreck signee Kaotic Style. This has always been one of those mystery records in my collection. For the longest time I thought “A Diamond In Da Ruff” was the artist and not the title, […]

COCAINE BLUNTS VS. SOUL SIDES: DAY ONE

Shadez of Brooklyn: Change
From 12″ (Pandemonium, 199?). Also available on New York Reality Check Vol 1

Goddamn ya’ll – shit is real. Cocaine Blunts and Soul Sides have been eyeing each other since this audioblog thing jumped off. Nos would post some hot hip-hop joints, I’d follow, we’d have our little dance but now it’s time for the face off. Blunts vs. Soul takes over this week at both CB and SS. Our weapons of choice? Indie rap singles […]
