Grand Daddy I.U. Opens The Vaults

The I Dot U Dot just blessed me with some tracks from his vaults to share with the Unkut regulars, with a quick description of four of his favorites:

‘To My Niggas’ was made in 94 and of course Cold Chillin’ ain’t clear the sample or some shit so that’s why it didnt come out. Produced by me.

‘Free Your Mind’ was made in ’98, produced by me.

‘On The Low’ – ’94, produced by my brother Kay Cee with keys by Salaam Remi. I wrote on the spot in salaam’s studio. The female on it was my girl at the time, acting all shy and shit. The Michael Jackson sample didn’t clear though.

‘New York Niggas Are Crazy’ – Produced by me. In 97-98 one of the two. My man City Cash heard the beat and immediately wanted to jump on it so I gave him a copy he came back later that day with Pudgee Da Phat Bastard and I had my niggas in da studio and we just went in. My girl Broomstick did da hook and bam!!! We had a song. BTW her name is Tanisha but she skinny as hell thus we call her the obvious.

this is why NY. was so dope. fuck record sales they forgot what made them them. raw rugged sounds
get back to using sp1200&s950 and let them bullshit keyboards&synths alone. get back to sampling and analog mixing and shit a be fine.

I need a hard copy with these joints on it.

I know there are new, younger hip hop fans out there but seriously, who is not familiar with Michael Jackson’s ‘Lady in my Life’?? I mean, its Michael Jackson, from Thriller, the biggest selling album of all time!

Wow, them joints is ILL, especially the two from ’94!! I’d love to get this shit on vinyl, but that’ll probably never happen… Who knows though. And dude’s right, “On The Low” with the MJ sample shit’s on LL’s crap. “New York Niggaz Are Crazy” is exactly that, CRAZY… Dope posse cut!! Who exactly appears (in order) on it though??? I.U. is one of the illest…
