“A legend in the old school, better today!” – Ced Gee Part 12

Since this is the only Ced Gee / Grandmaster Caz team-up not featured on the You Need Stiches LP (which I’ll review tommorrow), it warrants an appearence here. I suspect that it was left off last years compilation after being licensed to ego trip‘s The Big Playback album, and seeing as though Chairman Mao did a superb job with the linear notes, I’ll let him sum things up:

“A little guitar, some “Impeach The President” snares and a few choice turntable manipulations and this former Cold Crush Brother never sounded so jeep ready.”

As Caz proclaims: “I’m not 65 – I’m not retirin’!”, and he proved to be more than able to hold his own in ’88, although his assertion that he’s the “L-O-R-D of R-A-P” might have been over-stepping the mark a little. Ced presents a less sophisticated, stripped-down sound here than found on his Ultramagnetic records, indicating that he was either trying to stay true to Caz’s old school asthetic, or was simply after a quick paycheck. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume it’s the former.

“Get down grandmaster” vs. “bring the horns” by Caz-less Coldcrush..?

Gotta be “feel the horns” for me. I’m more a “you need stitches” kinda guy myself.

There’s a great unreleased song on the “Stiches” album. I’ll post it tommorrow.

“Feel the Horns” is classic. A lot better than Almighty KG’s other records like “She’s A Dog” or J.D.L.’s horrible attempt at novelty rap with “The Fat Boys Ate Up All The Food”.

Keep the Ced Gee productions coming. He is the most underrated producer in the history of hip hop.

buck 65 used that ’65/im not retirin’ line well on one of his cds.

i think ‘i’m caz’ is so crooked out. never mentioned much either. so b-beat. “…if i’m washed up then you gotta be dirty- i’m caaazzz!”
