WYDU Classics VOL 8, Aug 06'

by Travis on August 5, 2006

It’s the first of the month, and that means it’s time for another edition of WYDU’s classics. For those new visitors to our site, I’ll explain again what exactly that means. From my early days of getting into music, I’ve always made “mixtapes” of sorts for my own listening pleasure. Not really mixed together in the traditional sorts, but I’d try to combine stuff with the ol’ pause button mix. You older cats know where I’m coming from. I was always the one around the way to make tapes for friends because I was the one usually that had all the rare stuff, the remixes, the b-sides ect and most any major album that came out. And I enjoyed making tapes for friends. I’d always have a mix of known stuff then some stuff that the person I was making the tape for wasn’t familar with, introduce them to something new. I still have boxes full of tapes I made. Greatest Hits tapes, monthly tapes, best of certain years…all kinds of tapes.

When the computer and CD burner came into the picture, that was even better, in a sense. I couldn’t record over CD’s but it was quicker to make a compilation. I usually make monthly CD’s of newer tracks and stuff for myself to listen to. Well around the beginning of the year I was inspired by some of the stuff popping up on the Cocaine Blunts boards. People have been putting up their own made compilations. These include obscure tracks, remixes, b-sides, all the good stuff that peaks my interest. Stuff like the Lost and Found compilations, “Run Da Jewelz” series by my man Jaz and the Jason Gloss Chronicles from Lot’s of good stuff on these.

This all got me thinking. As good as these are, I wanted something for myself. Stuff that that was my shit back in the day. So I threw together a disk of tracks that got me going back in the day. For the past year or so, I’ve been more into the past than the present when it comes to Hip-Hop, so might as well have some stuff for me to listen to on the regular. I started making these January of this year. Then I made one for Febuary. From there, once a month, I’d make a new one. Needless to say, I got off on this type of thing. I figured I might as well share with the readers of this blog, and they seemed to go over pretty good orginally.As I said, these aren’t “mixed” in any sense. I’d like to be able to mix them together right, either using a real DJ or some fancy mixing program for the computer, but I don’t have access to either at this point in time. They’re also were made with my own personal tastes basically in mind. It’s stuff that I liked back in the day. Thanks to the net and most noteably, Cocaine Blunts, I’ve been re-acquiring alot of stuff that I loved back in the day, but lost. So most of these are kind more of the obscure type things (although not neccesarily rare or hard to find in an internet hip hop geek sort of way that I’ve found myself becoming). I have heard “Rebel Without A Pause” so many times in my life, I see no need to include it on these compilations. Instead, I’ve included stuff that isn’t as popular by the masses, but made some sort of impact on me.

With that being said, here’s the August edition of WYDU Classics, VOL 8

1. Back From Hell (remix) – Run DMC feat Ice Cube & Chuck D
2. Frankenstien’s Pain – Frankenstien
3. The Band Gets Swivey On The Wheels – Son Of Bazerk
4. Check The Elevation – Tony D
5. Jayou – Jurassic 5
6. Illusions – Cypress Hill
7. One Eight Seven (Deep Cover 2) – Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg
8. Drive By Miss Daisy – Compton’s Most Wanted
9. Westside Slaughtahouse – Mack 10 feat Ice Cube & W.C.
10. Comin’ Like This – 2nd II None feat DJ Quik, Hi-C, & AMG
11. Afro Puffs (extended version) – Lady Of Rage feat Snoop Dogg
12. The Renaissance – Amad Jamal
13. Tekzilla – Common
14. Logistics 101 – Louis Logic
15. Rush Ya Clique – The Outsidaz feat Eminem
16. Pardon Me- Dres
17. The Orginators- The Jaz feat Jay-Z
18. Ain’t Nuthin To It – K9 Posse

1. Back From Hell (remix)Run DMC feat Ice Cube & Chuck D ( B-side to Faces Single, Released in 91′, also on the Back From Hell LP)
I was happy to finally find this little gem after having it on the maxi-single back in the day. Hard drums, a pissed of Ice Cube and Chuck D in his hey day. Of course, Run DMC always holds a special place in my heart for being the reason I got into hip hop.

2. Frankenstein’s Pain- Frankenstein ( A-Side single b/w Peace & Quiet that dropped in 95)
If you’ve been reading since these first dropped, you will know I’m a big Frankenstein fan. This is the third song of his I’ve dropped on these since I’ve started. Just great production and something about his songs just grab me. Also appeared on a few other bootleg type projects, which I need to get around one of these days and post it up.

3. The Band Get’s Swivey On The Wheels- Son Of Bazerk ( Appeared on the “Bazerk, Bazerk, Bazerk” album in 1991)
Another personal favorite. I’ve always been a sucka for Bomb Squad production and this was no different. Pure un-adulterated noise.

4. Check The Elevation- Tony D (dropped as a single in 91′ and was on the “Droppin’ Funky Beats” LP from the same year)
I hated this dude when I was a kid, just because I was a huge 3rd Bass fan, and the group and Tony had beef back in the day. Looking back at it, now, I realized I liked the song, but just didn’t want to admit it. A over looked producer in the game for sure.

5. JayouJurassic 5 (Was a single in 98′ but first showed up on the 97 s/t EP)
This was the first time I ever heard Jurassic 5, and it was actually on the Lyrcist Lounge album. Needless to say, I went out and bought the EP. Just classic oldschool shit, and I don’t mean the late 80′s I’m talking Cold Crush, ect

6. Illusions- Cypress Hill (dropped as a single in 96′, off the 95′ LP “Temples Of Boom”)
Not sure what it is about this song, but I’ve always loved it. Maybe it’s because I was in a dark place in my life when this album dropped, but it’s always been one of my favorite Cypress joints

7. One Eight SevenDr. Dre & Snoop Dogg (was a b-side for the “Dre Day” EP, tape only in 92′)
This is the sequal to the orginal “Deep Cover”, same beats, same chorus, just different lyrics

8. Drive-By Miss DaisyCompton’s Most Wanted (on the 91′ album “Straight Checkn’ Em)
This dropped during my west coast gangsta fascination period. Some straight gangsta lyrics

9. Westcoast Slaughterhouse- Mack 10 feat Ice Cube & W.C. (appeared on Mack 10′s debut s/t album)
Although it seemed they were taking shots at my favorite MC, Masta Ace (although they never mention him and I can’t detect any subliminals), this joint was just hard as fuck to me. They did take shots and Common and kind of started that little war that lead to Common getting all up Cube’s ass.

10. Comin’ Like This- 2nd II None feat DJ Quik, Hi-C, AMG (featured on 2nd II None’s S/T 91′ album)
The 304′s, I wished they would have done a whole album together. Every members album, they always did a posse track, and they were always fuckin’ tight

11. Afro Puffs (extended version) - Lady Of Rage feat Snoop Dogg (dropped as a single in 94′ on the Above The Rim OST)
I don’t really know much about where this version came from, which is basically the same from what I remember except an added verse from Snoop and Dre dropping some commentary. I haven’t the orginal forever since I lost my Above The Rim OST a while ago, so might not be right on everything.

12. The RenassianceAmad Jamal (12″ single dropped in 01′ with three other songs)
I know very little about this guy except he dropped a couple singles in 01′ and seemed to be tight with Evidence of Dialted and that clan. This song was produced by Joey Chavez who is also associated to them. I think I bumped into this in the old Audio Galaxy days. It’s atight song, I wish he would have dropped more

13. Tekzilla- Common (unrelesed single that appeared as a white label around 00′)
As far as I know, this was a joint that was supposed to be on Hi-Tek’s album, but couldn’t be cleared because of sample issues. Tight ass beat, probably my all-time favorite Hi-Tek beat. My copy is scratched to hell, so excuse the skips

14.Logistics 101- Louis Logic (appeared as a three song single with Planet Rock & Punchline in 98′)
I’ve always been a big Louis Logic fan as well. This is, I think, his first single. Pure lyrics, kind of reminescent of early Eminem

15. Rush Ya Clique- Outsidaz feat Eminem (on the “Night Life” EP from 99)
Speaking of early Eminem, here is a spot of him on the Outsidaz track. Some rare hard NY shit from 99′

16. Pardon Me- Dres (dropped as a 12″ in 98, then appeared on his solo debut “Sure Shot Redemption” in 99′)
Being a big Black Sheep fan, I had to buy this when it dropped. This is the best song on the album, but some nice boom bap

17. The Orginators- The Jaz feat Jay-Z (Single from the “To Your Soul” album from 90′)
Early Jay-Z and the EXTREMELLY underrated The Jaz. This is a classic that I never heard nearly enough.

18. Ain’t Nothin’ To It- K9 Posse (Groups debut single that dropped in 88′ then followed by the s/t album)
Call this one of my guilty pleasures. One of my orginal wave of hip hop purchases after seeing it on YoMTV Raps.

For those of you that are new, here is a list and links for what you have missed
