Erick Sermon - Bomdigi (unreleased version)

Tobes put me up on this some time ago when it was still on Youtube. He has since hooked up a tape rip from an old 279 show which is what I've put on Soundcloud for your listening pleasure. Having asked around the 90s rap knowledge gods on the internet, no one seems to know about this. It could well be the original version of Bomdigi that was shelved due to sample clearance but it doesn't even seem to have made it on to a bootleg 12" which is unusual. It does feature the late Tommy Gunn so essentially it's a different version of the remix rather than the original E Dub solo version. Guessing it's tucked away on some Def Jam promo tape somewhere. The beat is lovely though - that soul sample wouldn't have sounded out of place 10 years later.


  1. never heard this before but it's definitely not an erick sermon beat. .doesn't sound like anything like his music

    prefer the og version by a long shot but still interesting to hear

  2. yeah I was thinking it wasn't that typical Sermon production from that era. I don't think there was an acapella available of the remix though so must be official in some capacity
