You’ve got to admit, the Bridge plays for keeps. Everyone that Poet shouted out on 1995’s “Set It Pt. 3” is still putting out music when you look at it. Killa Sha was part of the Killdren aka Killa Kids, and ACD were on Lumi’s album. Noyd and Infamous Mobb have new shit out…the only one MIA is Hostyle:
“I got peeps from Vernon to 12th Street/My man Nas, Kamakazee and Mobb Deep/
The Killa Kids, ACDC and Hostyle/My nigga Noyd and the Twins goin’ buckwild/
Can’t forget Cormega, he’s locked down/My man Pop, the Queensbridge family”
According to the new Screwball Classics CD, Hostyle has been replaced by Scope and VS, who I guess is Verse from the Rewind>Deja Screw CD. Anyway, it seemed like as good a time as any to do a drop on some old Tuff City and Hydra pieces that document the early days of the Screwball movement.
Hostyle feat. Quik aka Joell Ortiz – “Live From New York”
Ortiz makes an early appearance on this Kid Called Roots track.
Kamakazee – “Spread It” (Remix)
Marley was in good form on this one…or was it really J-Force behind the boards?
PHD feat. Havoc, Reecey & Kamakazee – “Set It” (12″ version)
Shouldn’t this be “Set It Pt 2” since the first one with MC Cor[Mega] was on the album? Regardless, it’s seven minutes of Screw, so I’m not complaining.
PHD feat. Havoc, Hostyle & Legacy – “Set It Pt. 3”
What happened to Part 2? Maybe Tuff City figured out that the last song should’ve been labeled as the second part, kinda like how there was no “Rambo 2” (just “Rambo – First Blood Pt. 2”)!
PHD feat. Hostyle & Legacy – “Kick That Shit And Get High”
Some of this sound familiar? Not sure what happened here, it’s a mixture of parts of “Set It” and some freestyle shit over the same Marley Marl beat Poet used on “The Grand P.O.” Plus someone yells “No More Showers” on the outro for some reason?
Up Next: Kid Capri Pt 2 and my Brother J from X-Clan interview from a year back. I think I’ve finally got this Screw fixation out of my system for the time being.
