Elucid-The One In Man

The One In Man was an EP that I worked on with my nephew.My oldest nephew got music full time ,my sister is a great singer Adriane Hall and my brother in-law Warren plays bass.The Class A Felony cd influenced him alot and he is still grinding till this day.These are his first songs early in his career-he was rugged and raw and sharp.Peep the vocab.

The Essentials

Heavy Rotation Ft. Jay Supreme

Strong Island

You Don't Want It FT. 2Face & IllaKnotti                                                                                           

The Real Bizarre Reality

The next artist is Bizarre Reality,yes way before that corny dude from D-12.He was my answer to Canibus but not so much over the top.He belong to the 5%Nation of Islam as were most of my MC's and he had messages in his music,it wasn't just rap rap rap.It was 96-97 and you still had to be a lethal writer. Blastin Off was a braggadoius song with great wordplay and Win,Lose or Draw is about the struggle to stay alive in the fucked up world.So check us out and enjoy
Blastin Off

Win,Lose or Draw

Great Mindz

Some of the artist I have worked with did their best stuff with me.They call me the idol maker,cause if you did four songs with me you were now idolized.I could take an average rapper and make him a deadly MC,theres a big difference.I bring to you Great Mind. Eternal Intellect was the MC and of course I did everything else.He never got signed but we made great songs.I always knew how to get the best songs out of my artist because I know how to set mood for writing and my music makes you think.E.I came from another group but the they wasn't ready,but I knew I could mold and help him grow song wise.E.I sounded like Sadat X but his vocab was much sharper and his lazy flow was just right over my music.He was 6'6" and I'm 6'5" so we called the album Land Of The Giantz. The first song is Funky 4 You.The track was so dope that Broadway of MCA Records heard it and I wind up selling it to Rakim along with two other tracks that Ra never used.I got paid but Pete Rock and CL Smooth used the same sample for I Got to Love.I think someone leaked the track cause they sound real simular.But here they are Funky 4 you /Never Have The Skillz                                                                                                                                                     
Funky 4 You

Never Have The Skillz                                                                                                                              


In 1998 I met Jay Supreme,a laid back cool brother from C.I. (Central Islip).Jay has that Mobb Deep, Nas Queensbridge type flow.We linked up and did an album but never released it,we maybe pressed 100 copies.The album sonically was unfinished but the songs were dope.Here are the what would have been the singles.
 Shock The World    
Mortal Kombat

These Are The Dayz/Top Emcee-Dj Stitches/Rhyme Va-lor

These Are The Dayz

Top Emcee                                                                                                                                           
Once again I bring another 12 inch. This song was made in 1994 and I finally pressed it 97-98.The artist was Rhyme Va-lor and like most MC's he was a P.I.M.A(pain in my ass).He acted like he was spending money, when actually I was spending my money.He was an ungratefull son of a bitch and everyone who he came in contact with him would want to punch him in his face.In any event I got distribution with FatBeats and Unique.The buyers at Unique were cool but Fat Beats-they have a name but the suck at doing business.The two jerks that worked there were assholes.They tried to give me the run around for 1600 bucks.My gripe was if you sold the records give me my money.On this one I made Va-lor sign a work for hire agreement and sent him on his way,so he could go suck on Prince Paul's nuts.Most people don't realize I developed DeLaSoul not Paul and not PUNK ASS MASE.But anyway check these joints out and I still have some wax left on this one leave a comment to order.

Lord Dumar

On November 18 1991 at  about 12:07 am Edward Dumar Israel was murdered by some cowards.For those who didn't know him,he was my friend.He also was the nicest MC coming out of North Amityville Long Island fuck DeLaSoul It has withstood the test of time,the Class A Felony album is certified CLASSIC HIPHOP.Just last month the police contacted me and said they have new info and some cowards names and prints have surfaced.Now i'm not a cop friendly dude,but if they catch these mf's all praises due shit its been 20 years and nothing,now they have new info that shit sounds good to me.But here is the god doing his thing as he always did.R.I.P Poppa Du

cover:The Spirit-Ilacoin/Dj Stitches

Now in my search on the web,I find out at least two more people calling themselves DJ STITCHES,it pisses me off because I've used that name publiclly and as a professonal since 1989.One mutherfucker from Texas wasn't even born and the other is some Goth dj overseas I guess.My thing is when you pick a name it should be original.I mean search yhe name on google or something and stop biting.I bet you mutherfuckers wouldn't pick Q-Bert or Roc Raida as your name,shit I been djing & producing for almost a quarter century and I got to share my name with some under-skilled wanna be. Fuck that get off my dick and come up with your own name.Anyway in 1997 I met Ilacoin.He claims to have had music out prior but the only deal he had was with Game Recordings and I got him that deal.(Peace to Sheck ,Ric ,Kid Swift  and Beef)He had two releases on Game,first was By Stranger feat. Black Rob & Labba,the second was Keep It Street ft. Sadat X and produced by G-Wise,tThe Spirit was produced by me and G-Wise did the talkbox.This that and the Third was produced by Easy Moe Bee.I'm only posting up The Spirit cause it was the best joint on it.The two other songs were never released.I really didn't care for the Moe Bee track ,but the G-wise track was tight.I had a fall out over money and thats what  pulls things apart.So here are the three songs that should have been released.

Class A Felony

The first post technically was made in 90-91 and was supposed to be released before the Blacksheep Album, we were signed at the same time with Ultra Magnetic and Bobby Konders 1990.  Unfortuntately, Lord Dumar the MC- my homeboy, my friend was murdered 11-18-91 and had to go through the redtape with mercury records.  I begged and pressured them to release the album because it was finished and I needed people to hear Dumar.  The Hip Hop World deserved to hear Dumar.  I get teary eyed when I think about that situation but I will get into it some other time.  Let's talk about the music.  First song I'm not the herb.  This was the first song we made after Dumar came home from jail.  He did a year and half cause some other motherfucker put drugs behind his radio and of course with a name like Class A Felony, he definitely wasn't gonna tell on the bitch ass nigger.

The song consisted of the sample Save Their Souls by Bohanan.  I used this before any other producer.  I actually was using it for MC Uptown-  Tommy Boy Records but we had a fall out about money, so was not giving him anymore music, and I have a demo of The 40 Dogz on it.  They were a lcoal group around my way that I developed.  But anway, myself and Dumar actually cleared that sample.  Our lawyer, Josh Grier tried but Hamilton Bohannon really didn't have good things to say about the industry.  So me and Dumar got 20 dollars in quarters went to a phone booth, yeah a phone booth nigga- I didn't have long distance on my house phone and Dumar didn't have a phone.  We had a 20 minute conversation and convinced hm to listen to the song before he decided, and call us back.  He asked for about 5000 bucks and writer's credit and it was a done deal.  He didn't like hiphop but loved Dumar's voice and commended me on the way I used that little piece of his record.  I scratched Blow Your Head by James Brown through out the whole record while Dumar crushed the vocals like the Jugganot he was.  There was also a remix which I didn't like but Mercury wanted it.  It was done by Chy Skillz from Onyx but it wasn't Class A Felony built so you know.  I'll post some other time.  Hyped Up, in the credits, they only give 45 King producer rights but really we did it together.  I supplied the meat- Blood Sweat & Tears sample.  More and more Mark provided  extra toppings- The guitar riffs and the horns.  That was our song with a nme brand person and what a nambe brand DJ Mark the 45 Fuckin King, my man.  Oh by the way Mark was very influential in us signing with Liza Cortes and Mercury Records Peace to Dave Gossett. R.I.P. Lord Dumar aka Poppa Du.

Sleepwalkaz 93-94

Sleepwalkaz-Method of Madness.I sampled Quincy Jones Gula Matari and chopped Uphill Peace of Mind drums,and scratched Minnie Ripperton Baby,This Love I Have.The Mc was Rhyme-Va-Lor-a cocky light skinned camel face.He was everything a A&R wanted but like most Mc's-he shot himself in the foot,before it could get started.He later went to do work on the Prince Agmonst Thieves Lp,produced by Prince Paul.Va-lor was the first MC I worked with after Dumar passed.We had great chemistry,we did shows downtown,uptown,midtown,anywhere we could perform. We made a good album and I almost had him and another artist name Eternal (Great Mindz)signed to Mercury but they fucked it up. Second joint is In Da World. I sampled the piano from Isaac Hayes I Love You That's all and the Horns from Head Hunters- God Made Me Funky, album version.johnnie Guitar Watson In da World and World Famous Supreme Team Hey DJ. Lyrically Va-Lor kills both songs. For 1993-1994 we were fitting right in veins of Hip Hop and was certified Dope according to streets and local venues. We were underground yet commercial.
