It seems Marley Marl has been busy lately, and while there are plenty of stories about credit disputes / ghost producing floating around these days, you can’t deny that after all these years he’s still bringing that gritty “project sound” to everything he touches.
This new remix he did for Busta is a good example, as he replaces the effective (although hardly original) remake of Diamond‘s “I Went For Mine” beat with some earth-shattering drums laid underneath an abrasive electric guitar riff (Jimmy?). Although he’s working on an album with The Blastmasta at the moment, I can’t help but imagine how much better some one like Smiley The Ghetto Child would have sounded over this track.
Less essential is the song he did with Capone and a few of his weed carriers that appears on the Lock & Load compilation. While not as raw as the “NY” remix, it’s still an effective piece that could have done with better MC’s to spark it. I’d advise cutting this joint off after the first verse since the WC’s are fuckin’ awful (pity Flush only does the hook).
