These aren’t one hit wonders, since none of these records were technically “hits” in the traditional sense. This is more of a collection of rappers who only got one chance to shine before they got a steady city job with a pension or dangled in record company hell for all eternity.

Download: A Salute To Duke Bootee

duke bootee

Perhaps best known for providing Melle Mel with the beat to “The Message” while working as a Sugarhill Records session player, Duke Bootee went on to unleash a series of DMX/Linn Drum driven speaker smashers for Profile and his own Beauty and the Beat imprint, as well as his own solo album. When combined with a great scratch DJ and some effective Shout Rap (Word of Mouth‘s “King Kut”) or the hardcore b-boy stance of one-time Rammellzee rhyme partner and a razor sharp Latin Rascals edit (K-Rob‘s “I’m A Homeboy”), the trademark Duke sound was unstoppable. Here’s a collection of his production and vocal work, including that time that Bootee was recruited to record a guest rap in Ewok…

Third single from the BBW – A Pornographic Opera album. Homeboy made songs about his favorite big gals on film, now he’s rolling with one in real life. Bless you, internets.

Cole sez:

“This is my prized track, I actually got the woman to do the introduction for the song and be on my album cover. This picture for her single was taken right in front of me. Kacey catapulted herself to Greatest BBW Of all time when she agreed to collaborate for my album. I am forever in her debt, hopefully she takes travelers checks”

A selection of tracks worthy of twelve inch status on the grounds of how great they are. The fact that I don’t own proper instrumental versions of any of these kills me a little bit inside every day.

Him Lo – ELO-HIM

FOSSIL SNAKE

Heard this on the new Chopped Herring mix and thought it deserved it’s own post. Him Lo explains:

“I made it bout 8 yrz ago… Done alotta deep research n studying since then so some of my viewz have changed..”

Regardless, the flow on this is exceptional and I fux with it. It’s also a million times more listenable than Ras Kass‘ “Nature of A Threat.”
