AZ - My Ni**as (Produced by Buckwild)

Now THIS is what I’m talking about. First drop from AZ’s Doe Or Die II (As summer is officially here in Barcelona, I’ve been bumping the original a lot recently) and it sounds gooood.  This is more of a ‘shout out’ track and wouldn’t surprise me if it ended up at the end of the LP, but from what I hear from Buckwild and AZ is that the both are still on form like it’s 1995 all over. Horns are on the agenda here giving the flavour of this track that old-school 90′s feel that us 90′s heads all clamour for. Delicious.

O.C. (D.I.T.C.) Throwback

Here’s a couple of random O.C. joints which I’ve picked up across my Internet journey this evening.

The first is a remix of Buckwild’s Born 2 Live which replaces those famous slay-bells and piano chords with a more intense drum pattern and almost spacey aurora tied together with a somewhat clumsy Nas sample. I prefer Buck’s original.

The second is a superb joint which I understand was recorded between Word…Life and Jewelz. It sounds like it could have been lifted from either album, with that signature Buckwild sound and O.C.’s smooth on-point delivery. Massive fan of this joint right here.

Saigon-It's Cold

Can you believe The Greatest Story Never Told is actually being released!? It’s debatable whether people still care in truth, but for the longtime fans it’s certainly exciting. Tracklisting for it can be found after the click below.

It’s Cold isn’t on the album, but is another top track from Sai. Oddly, it appears none of us posted Bring Me Down, which is probably one of the best tracks he’s put out in a very long time, and Sai continues that quality with this track. It’s got a more ‘positive’ production than the aforementioned track, throwing a lighter melody in with easygoing percussion to push his raps to the forefront, and Sai doesn’t disappoint with decent flow and lyrics. Probably preferred the darker style of Bring Me Down, but this is still a good track.

Buckwild Presents EP Vinyl

Now that I’ve finally got my hands on Buckwild’s latest release of 90′s gems, here is my favourite from the EP. The A-Side features joints recorded or remixed in 2009/2010 so understandably there’s a few pieces left out from Celph Titled/Buck’s Nineteen Ninety Now and there’s the classic remix to Kool G Rap/Nas’ Fast Life over on the B-Side

Represent (Remix) sees Golden Age utility-man Grand Daddy I.U. ferociously attack Buck’s thumping drums and distant trademark sleigh-bells with a Large Pro/Big Daddy Kane-styled flow. It feels like 1994 all over again.

Celph Titled, Buckwild, FT & Rugged Man-Mad Ammo Video

As expected from anything with Rugged Man in, here we’ve got some crazy visuals from Celph/Buckwild’s Nineteen Ninety Now.

Interesting way to do the video, with mini-interviews from all parties separating each verse from the track.

Audio here.

Buckwild Remixes G Rap/Nas-Fast Life

Fresh off his iconic Nineteen Ninety Now project with Celph Titled, Buckwild adds a favourable tinge to the 1995 classic collaboration between two New York giants.

The lyricism is out of this world as we witness two greats of the game go back and forth. However, the original beat often leaves a lot to be desired and sounds somewhat tame in comparison with the hard-hitting opening that 4,5,6 offers. Buck’s darker undertones therefore makes this an unmissable addition to Heads’ collections. This remix is so good it will be finding its way onto the end of my 4,5,6 playlist.

Celph Titled/Buckwild - Miss Those Days

One of my favourites from Celph Titled and Buckwild’s brilliant collaboration Nineteen Ninety Now.

“RZA rocking all the beats/SEGA with the Altered Beast/wasn’t safe to walk the streets with Jordan sneakers on ya feet!”

Celph Titled & Buckwild-Nineteen Ninety Now [Album Review]

While the foundations of Nineteen Ninety Now sit firmly in their self-titled era, the freshness of Celph Titled and Buckwild’s innovation manage to deliver a 2010 gem to be savoured by old-school and underground heads alike.

Raekwon really has started something. It now seems as if everyone wants to rekindle Golden Age hip-hop again. And who am I to complain? The success of Rae’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, has seen industry vets such as Capone-N-Noreaga release the sequel to their critically acclaimed The War Report, AZ is soon to drop Doe Or Die 2 and even Snoop aims to go for the jugular after recently (and worryingly) announcing Doggystyle 2.

Throwback Thursdays Vol 38

Whilst the self-proclaimed kings of New York were battling it out for the throne, attention had turned to the underground where the streets were going crazy for the hip-hop supergroup Diggin’ In The Crates crew.

In early 1990 Lord Finesse brought together some of the most talented producers, DJ’s and MC’s in the game who would later become one of the most respected hip-hop group’s of all time. Diamond D, Showbiz, A.G., O.C., Buckwild, Fat Joe and finally Big L one-by-one eventually teamed up to form the legendary D.I.T.C.

Celph Titled & Buckwild 'Nineteen Ninety Now'

Hopefully going to see lots of promotional material for this over the upcoming months because it’s something I’m naturally excited in.

On the upcoming collaborative effort between the two, Nineteen Ninety Now enabled Celph uninhibited access to Buckwild’s original mid-90’s production, where he was able to select and record to over 16 unreleased D.I.T.C. bangers; bringing his charismatic flow and lyrical prowess to each one.

Guest appearances from D.I.T.C, Treach, Vinnie Paz, Brand Nubian, R.A. The Rugged Man, Chino XL, Demigodz and more will see this project rest favourably amongst the underground and old-school heads. Drops October 26th!
