“Taking A Record That’s Already Made” – Funkmaster Flex and T La Rock

The obvious thing to do when focusing on the work of T La Rock is to wheel out his trusty classic “It’s Yours”, which is not only a great song but is also widely regarded as the first Bass song ever.

Instead, I’ve decided to throw-up the ’93 version, which appeared on the b-side to “C’Mon Baby”, one of the numerous “cut ‘n paste” party records that Funkmaster Flex released on Wreck/Nervous Records around that time (he also did several 12″s with 9MM aka Nine). Thrown in as a bonus mix of “Butterfly Style”, the track combines a looped snippet of Flavor Flav working the crowd with a dash of “The Champ” and “Rockin’ It” thrown in for good measure. Portions of “The 900 Number” and “Do The James” round off proceedings, while T recreates his original rhymes, adding a suitably “rugged” new verse and some shout-outs at the end.

Yeah this was a dope cut although not something i’ve played in a while.

The original, however, gets play at least once a week and “6 million ways to die” by Flex still gets bump.

This was a tight song, but I wish it could be remastered to where the bass could hit harder. But other than that, it’s a hot joint
