Nope, you didn’t miss anything. I didn’t ask for any requests since I’m on my way out of town for the weekend. I didn’t want to leave you with nothing over the weekend so I thought I’d throw up something that was asked for a couple of weeks ago but didn’t have. Ran into it this past week on Cocaine Blunts, so big out to Zodiak. Illa for posting this up
Art Of Orgin Promo EP 1992 http://www.megaupload.com/?d=K76DPXUG
This was Chino XL’s original group before he came solo, along with Kaoz who did the production on these tracks. As legend goes, Profile was given this EP back in 91′ who then passed it on to Rick Rubin at Def American. Somehow, Profile dropped the ball, and things fell through with Kaoz after they dropped “Into The Pit” b/w “No Sollin Rollin” in 92′ and “Urination-Al” in 93′ before the young Chino (he was 17 when they formed) would go solo….the rest, as they say is history….
This is some pretty cool shit. I had never heard any of this. It sounds reminiscent of stuff coming out in 91′-92′, almost sounds like some Dante Ross/SD50′s type stuff with some early inklings of “Horrorcore”. Chino sounds basically the same as he did on “Here To Save You All”, which was kind of his downfall, taking a whole album of the same flow and tone grew old over a full length, but it sounds good on a short EP such as this.
Enjoy, and again, thanks to Zodiak. Illa on cocaine blunts for this….
Have a good and safe weekend, Travis
