Kool G Rap feat. Nas – Fast Life [Buckwild Remix]

To celebrate the release of the superb Nineteen Ninety Now LP with Celph Titled, Buckwild is releasing a limited-edition vinyl EP (only 200 copies) on No Sleep Recordings, with remixes/unreleased cuts with Celph on the A side and some unreleased remixes on the flip. Here’s his lost remix of ‘Fast Life’ – not to be confused with the Salaam Remi or Vinyl Reanimator versions…

Buckwild: “I worked on this somewhat later then I should have. Even though I did the album version and it was the single, Salaam’s remix was chosen before I even turned this in. I was going to use it on the white label, but went with the Nas and AZ songs instead”.

Track listing:

“There Will Be Blood [LP Version]” feat. Sadat X, Grand Puba, A.G., O.C. & Diamond D

This is dope…it has created a whole different type of track.I love the original as well.

Comment by Johnny Hardcore 10.29.10 @

Vinyl Reanimator remix was the best IMO.
This one is also dope tho…

It’s definitely on par with the VA remix, if not better. IMO 4,5,6 would’ve been a better album if this version was included instead of the one with the weak singing.

Don’t see how anyone could like the OG mix over this or the other 2 remixes, but to each their own.
Hopefully I can get a copy of this EP.

@QUITDABS
Thats because its limited 200 copies vinyl edition.
Its kinnda expensive to press. I dont think he gonna make much money from this.

You must be kidding, Qwermoo. The price for pressing a small vinyl edition ain’t that much higher, maybe a buck per copy. The main reason is that the artists wanna get paid, plus he seems to prepare new projects with the profit. I don’t think that the sales figures of the Buckwild/Celph Titled CD would ever warrant the production costs of the album – at least if you pay the artists.

@Chulee ManSun

Sure if you press 100,000 copies maybe its gonna ba a buck per copy. But hes pressing 200 units.
Its like beer, A six pack gonna cost you 10 bucks and one bottle 3 :\

@Qwermoo: You should take a look at http://www.musicolrecording.com/vinyl/

The music is nice, tha price for the EP on the other hand is ridiculous (though still lower than the 3 figure rates some of those limited pressings are sold for these days). Face it: those prices are to rip off “collectors”. The Poor Pocket Music 12″es which were also limited to 500 pieces went for ~$10-15 each. So stop hiking the prices already!!!!

You are failing to understand its not the actual cost per manufacturing or printing the records, its the actual cost of paying the artist/producers, properly restoring music and the grown-man time & effort it takes to put it together. These guys may have spent a pile of money just to get the music itself or have tons of costs invested in other projects on their label which is needed to continue to bring new releases. Its not like some new unsigned group paying a few hundred bucks for studio time and a beat.. and then going to press it. Sure it’s no problem at that point to give it away or sell it for 5-10 bucks because your costs are super low and you’re not established enough to get sales like that, so you have to take an L. But labels like this and producers like Buckwild aren’t going to put something out with intentions of taking an L. If its going to be worth their time and effort, they’re gonna have to be compensated properly for that. It’s just how it works. You can’t have everything you want for some bargain bin price in a climate where barely anybody is BUYING music period. A lot of you people want want want, but you don’t put anything back into it to get anything quality. If you think you have a right to only pay 5-10 bucks for a 12″, well good luck because those days are over, thanks to the economy dying and people deciding they’re fine with MP3s and Serato. Sad sad sad state. So no reason to continue to whine about these prices. They are what they are and they cost what they cost to produce. Ever think of this: How about this stuff wouldn’t even exist for your listening pleasure if everyone just shunned the higher prices and stopped supporting compeltely. So… would you rather NONE of these gems continue to get released in favor of keeping prices “cheap”, when barely any good vinyl comes out period for regular price nowadays? Or would you rather pay more money for a few records a year when you’re buying considerably WAY less records per year than you used to spend when they were regular price? Doesn’t the budget per year of buying records even-out in comparison? I never can quite understand some people’s logic, it’s like they don’t think – they just whine and complain without realizing why things are the way they are.. A lot of really dumb people out there.

“it’s like they don’t think – they just whine and complain without realizing why things are the way they are..”

UHHH. AINT THAT WHUT U DOIN RIGHT NOW? WHINING? IM JUST SAYING..TELL ME IF IM WRONG.

C’MON NOW..QUIT DA BS

Comment by QUITDABS 11.06.10 @

Just pointed out the truth, didn’t whine at all. Bitch-slapped most of you upside the head. How can I “complain” about people “complaining”? I called it like it is. Take it personal if you want, doesn’t bother me at all.
