Wild Pitch Records Tribute: Rarities & More

This post is a tribute to Wild Pitch Records. Gang Starr’s label from ’89 till ’90.

Wild Pitch Records was a hip hop record label started in the mid 1980s by Stuart Fine and was eventually distributed by EMI and eventually acquired by Jay Faires, who tried to reactivate it as part of his short-lived JCOR Entertainment label. Artists who released records under this label include Main Source, Lord Finesse, Ultramagnetic MCs, Chill Rob G, Gang Starr, UMC’S, O.C., Brokin English Klik, Hard knocks, and the Coup. Since the majority of its albums were released in the early 90’s and went out of print, Wild Pitch re-released their catalog on April 22, 2008.

I was boring through my hard disc and this popped up. Some never released/rarities/promos/demos from Wild Pitch just before they wrapped the label up. I remember downloading it years back on some vintage old skool forum LOL. The recordings have a date range from 1995 to 1997. The quality sound isn’t that great though. But I thought it would be fun to share, very interesting ;). 90s Hip Hop >>> my/your life.
