Strong Peoples

Mellow stuff in the post from yesterday so today it gotta be ruffa again!

STRONG PEOPLES. I have this record since many years in my crates and almost forgot bout it but some days ago I stumbled over it again when takin out some wax to put a mix together. So I thought that this crew here deserves some shine in our blog.
Strong Peoples have been formed in the mid/late nineties by ex Double XX Posse member Sugar Ray aka Ray Slugs. In 1997 they independently released their (as far as I know) debut-12” with the tracks “not gonna be able to do it” (a link to the old D XX P track), then my favourite “war stories” that is great tune underlined with a mad pushin bass line and – last but not least – “it ain’t safe”. The last song is then also somehow the smoothest one on this twelve using a fine piano sample.

Strong Peoples_not gonna be able to do it-12”

When I checked discogs today I found out that the crew obviously had another release in 2004 (check here). Would be great if someone who got that could up it in here! Apart from that I have no clue if they released other stuff.
Also you can check youtube here to find a nice video-cut of the 3 tracks from 97…

Aight’ten!

I picked up this 12" a few months ago. It Aint Safe is the winner for me. Nice review.

Hello!
I don't know if this blog is still alive... but is it possible to make a reup of the release?

Thanks!

Ps: is it the full version (Main & clean versions)?

Cheers from Belgium!
