Gauge

Today’s post is all about emcee GAUGE. In fact I couldn’t find out much bout this rapper so need to share the lil’ I can…
To my knowledge his first appearance on wax was a feature-part on “Maestro Fresh Wes’ – pray to da east pt.2”, that came out in 1994. the next life-sign of him was then found in 1996 when he was again guest-rapper on “Maestro’s – death ministry” (we presented earlier in this blog already). In the same year his buddy Maestro helped him droppin’ his first solo-work, so here we start…

This debut was the single “cranium b/w breathless” and he could release that thanks to the efforts of Maestro who “signed him” to his own “Maestro Records” and let him do his thang.
Both tracks are just amazing but I personally like “breathless” lil’ bit more than the “cranium” song but I guess that’s only cuz I listened too many times to the other song already…

His second release was then one year later (1997) again on Maestro Records. This time GAUGE hit the crowd with the track “off key” – a song I first thought is solid but not more. But by listening to it more and more I really got in luv with that ish (say, I needed to “grow” on that one). On the flipside he put the “cranium remix” that features emcees “Phantasm and UG from the CELLA DWELLAS” and as that time I was on the crazy hunt for all of the Dwellas stuff I had to cop this one…

The last release from this man (besides his appearances on compilations like “Superrapin’ Vol.2”, “Freestyle Frenzy “ …) was this wax here. This twelve had the tracks “insane”, produced by none less than famous Nick Wiz and “bring it to me” that featured rappers Phantasm (of Cella Dwellas) and Special Ed.

“inhale – exhale, comin’ atcha with a speed…breathless” (from the track “breathless”)

why do you cut out the instrumentals and remixes? thats pretty lame, thats one of the best things about vinyl...
thanks for the songs, but dont leave out essential tracks!

i think bcoz he doesn want his blog to become a leech-off place for the serato dudez out there..

then make a password for the records he puts up. just like a lot of the other blogs do. leaving out instrumentals and remixes is just a waste of a download, i hate just getting half of a record... its just half-ass
