3rd Bass - Capital Rap Show promo (1992)

Follwing the popular 'Best Of 94' Westwood show that I dropped recently, Mr Lawson hooked me up with the 'Best Of 92' selection from when Big Tim was still on Capital FM. That tape is coming soon but in the meantime I thought I'd share this snippet from it: Pete Nice and MC Serch trading verses over EPMD's 'Rampage' beat...


I'm not sure if it really falls into the 'slept on' category but 3rd Bass's debut 'The Cactus' is definitely one of my all time favourite albums. It was the first album I bought on CD aswell so I played it to death and know it pretty much inside out. The lyrics are solid and Sam Sever's beats still sound fresh (shame he never really blew up on a larger scale). Anyway, if you're not familiar with it, I highly recommend it.

An unreleased 3rd Bass/Brand New Heavies collaboration, presumably intended for BNH's 'Heavy Rhyme Experience' album.


I originally found this at KAMGOTBEATS


  1. Great group, great A&R-ing skills (well, apart from Pete bringing Cage into the game), great anecdotes by the pair of them in Bobbito's book about kicks.

  2. if they could've stuck it out I think they'd have had a great 3rd album in them
