Coming on the 7th of april (2009) on Bare Fist Recordings. All tracks produced by DJ Premier, track 8 is probably known as “Just Rhymin’ With Kane“. Wow, he actually didn’t forget his volumes! I excited to hear the intro beat like always and now lets hope on “Beats That Collected Dust Vol. 2“. I also heard “Tha Blaqprint” will be dropping in april too, but we’ll see…

Gang Starr – Doe in Advance (Original Version)

For those who love the good ol’ preem days this can be interesting, I’m not quit sure how to say it. But for me it’s totally new… It sounds like more the demo version of the Gang Starr track “Doe In Advance“. Officially it was released on “Hard To Earn” as a bonus track on the Japanese version. Later you could buy it on bootleg vinyl singles and so on, that was always the version I heard untill now, because now I bought this Japanese import. And guess what, this beat is different then those on the bootlegs because the bootlegs contains a version with an uncleared sample, the song was original ment to be as a B Side for “Suckas Need Bodyguards” in 1994. But due to sample issues it was changed to “The ? Remainz“. I call this version the original version:

Tell me what you think? GANG STARR!!
