Erick Sermon - Bomdigi (unreleased version)
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.
