The 45 King Appreciation Week, Day Four

by Travis on May 2, 2008

As we come to the end of The 45 King appreciation week, Mark is still doing his thing. Still shopping beats and is rumored to be doing projects with some prominent artists in the near future. I think it would be great to see someone let him do an album to let him shine. The man is most worthy of being included in the upper echelon of legendary producers.

The Cat Jams is a newer compilation put out by Tuff City, and supposedly had The 45 King’s blessing on it as well. In an interview I read with him though, he later said it didn’t come out the way he wanted it to. There are some newer joints on this by the likes of Lakim Shabazz and Chill Rob G.

Mark has a large collection of “Lost Break Beats” that are broke up by colors. It’s one of the things I’ve been looking for as these are seperated out into many different “colors”. Here, I offer up the Brown Album and the Yellow Album. There is supposed to be a Grey, White and Pink Lost Breaks as well, which I have yet to see. If anyone has them, toss ‘dem bitches up.

And last, but not least, the single that started it all off. The 900 Number is probably one of, if not the most popular break in hip hop. It’s been used in numerous songs, The Ed Lover Dance, movie soundtracks and I’m sure I’ve seen it show up on some car commercials in the past. The slowed down James Brown horn is universally recognized by anyone that remotely knows anything about the hip hop culture. Thanks to Chris for upping this
