the post with no name (aka 'random treats')

Been a while since I last posted. No real reason for the break other than that I dropped a lot of hotness in May and thought I'd best give you time to catch up. Nothing worse than having a load of newly downloaded music and not having time to get through it all before the next gem appears.
Theres no specific theme to this post other than to offer up a few things from my hardrive that you might not have come across before, but at the same time probably dont warrant their own post. Enjoy...

Jay Z 'Feelin It' (Rosco's ride-out blend)
I found this on Soundcloud. Uses the 'It Was A Good Day' instrumental. Nice.

Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz 'Deja Vu (Uptown Baby)' Bay Area mix
Promo only business to keep the regional DJs sweet. This has the same beat but the chorus shouts out towns and cities in The Bay rather than NYC.

The Firm 'Freestyle'
Think I got this off the 'Firm Biz' CD single. Uses the Alkaholiks 'Hip Hop Drunkies' beat.

Mobb Deep 'True Lies'
I'm guessing this is from around 1997ish. Not 100% but I dont think it ever saw an official release. If it did and any of you have a better quality version than the bootleg vinyl rip I've posted here then hook me up!


  1. Ha, I remember when i was living in Arizona from early 98 to mid 99 and of course the radio was even weaker than one could imagine. Before i got there, i hated NY radio but i couldn't wait to get back to NY radio after being in Tucson. I remember it was a treat that they played Uptown Baby like over a year after it was played out on the east coast(in fact, by the time it even got on hot97, it was already played out by over a year by SnB). Only difference, that made me chuckle like hell, was they had it saying "Tucson Baby!" in the hook, lol.

  2. I've started keeping an eye out for cheap CD singles when Im digging as they often have random things like that freestyle tucked away on track 4 or 5.

  3. Indeed. On Mac Mall's Sic Wit Tis CD single there's a totally killer exclusive called Soak Some Dope which even hardcore Bay heads had missed. I think I was the first person to post that on the internet.

  4. thanks step....never had the Firm freestyle in good quality b4
