the next vinyl from this cat was released in 2001 on the FreshChest label and is a bomb of an EP! six tracks and I almost like every single tune on it to the fullest! my favorites among these are def "faulty arrows" where Paradigm is using the quite popular sample from "Clockwork Orange" by Stanley Kubrick that was also used by CAGE in his track "agent orange" (Fondle'Em Records). other brilliant songs are "easter sunday" with its great oriental melody, "candle dogma" - another pretty dark tune and "desert winds". listen to it, I'm sure u gonna like that ish too!

Cuts n scratches on all tracks were done by Mr Gravity and Dr Strangearm – production was all done by Strangearm.
I did a short research online but so far couldn’t get any further information about the crew and if they have more stuff than this here so additional information is always welcome in the comments-section.

The fax bout tha wax: released in 1999 on a label that attracted lots of attention by its earlier 94-release named “Tha East Comin Thru EP” (with Madman Shawn etc.) – East New York Entertainment.
The content: unfortunately you only get radio and instrus but well – I can live with that…the first track is my ish already! “no” – as simple as this – is a pretty smooth tune with a laidback beat. Perfect to get away from it all! “feel it” is the next tune and brings you sound-wise the good-mood-vibes. When u listen to this beat it kinda feels like ur chillin at the beach with a nice drink in your hand and just enjoy the good life! “da ha” is the last track and – at least text-wise – the sickest of them all. The beat is not really my type but the rhymes are so strange I had to rip that too…
On the label of this vinyl you can also see that the guys also refer to a “forthcoming” album titled “nonbelievers”. I guess it only remained with this as I couldn’t find any further info that would confirm the existence of such an LP. If you know more then holla in the comments, thx!
BTW: I have a spare copy of this record here (conditon is VG++) to trade. hit me with an email (see my profile) in case ur interested!

Here it is about another EP they dropped on the same (Guillotine Records) label as their amazing 98-EP. This one’s outta 2000 and comes with 3 tracks. Now before you listen to these tracks be aware that they won’t sound like their old stuff. This doesn’t mean that the tunez here are crap – definitely not – but you can’t compare with the older work from them as you get served here with a totally different style.
On the main side you find the banger “where stars are born”. I really like the easiness that is created by that clear piano sample and the beat is also pushin yo ass so I guess that makes it a winner already. Rhyme-wise the crew is reppin their boro – Brooklyn in a pretty solid way.
On the flip you find the next song that is titled “dead end street” – a solid track where the MCs is working a lot with analogies. The last track is “lissen to this” - another solid piece but I guess it will need some time for you to grow on that (as it was the case to me).
NY Confidential_where stars are born-EP
Besides that the crew has some other ish out there as e.g. the “rush-12” plus some more twelves and features on LPs that are not listed in discogs etc.….(google can help!).
Btw: if anyone has the “rush-12” please add in the comments section as I would like to listen to this vinyl once….thx!

So this boot was def the solution to me and cuz u got all those great tracks on it it’s also why I still play it often on my wheels!
Also as far as I know there aren’t many of those pressings around. So far (of course I didn’t check on a regular basis) I haven’t seen any of those poppin up at ebay, gemm, discogs or similar sources and the only country I really found them in stores (online or “live”) were here in good ol Switzerland! I also heard that this boot was done by some Swiss heads and finally pressed in Poland but don’t know if this is true…also rumours about pressing-quantities say that it goes between 300-500pcs. maximum!
Anyway, let’s spill some short facts bout the wax n crew:
The ep brings you the tracks “a star is born”, “American dream”, “fare one pt2”, “get wit it”, “give up the game”, “paint the town red”, “harlem usa” and “harlem usa (uptown)”.
To the crew – well I don’t think I need to repeat what has been said already many many times but if you wanna get some short facts bout the CHILDREN OF THE CORN then click here.

Well then as a replacement I hit you with this mad nice wax outta BK from …
Anyway, let’s focus on the content: on the main you get served wit a track called “from dusk till dawn”. This nicely arranged beat has some awesome chorus and keyboard-samples that got me instantly hooked when listenin to it the 1st time!
On the flipside you will find the title “thug sport”. To me this song is rather mediocre, can’t really explain why but maybe some of you might like that tune…gotta form your own opinion on that!
Label-wise this record was released on Soundscope Music – as far as I remember a label I didn’t hear before and the release-year was 1998.
Peeeez n I’m out!

Nevertheless don’t get me wrong – I really like that record but those tracks are definitely going under the category of “tracks that need to grown on one” and “manetane” grew a lot on me since I got this wax!

The wax that obviously marks the birth of this label (ARRKS01 – runout) is coming from a crew that goes by the name of BBR which is an abbreviation for "Big Brother Resistance".
BBR consists of producer SupremeEx (aka Stinke) and the two emcees Tim T and PCP. The main title is called “spityn’” which is a certified banger that also features emcee BRIZ (will get back at this dude later in this post). The turntable skills were performed by DJ Kwestion who is famous for his contributions on another Phillie-crew – the Jedi Mind Tricks.
The 2nd track is titled “verbal leviathan” - a super relaxed song featuring emcee Kenneth Masters (here credited as the Anonymous) and DJ Charlie Brownski. The bonus cut on this record is a real hidden treasure. “two-o-one-to-the-three” (2013) is the title and this beat is filled with spherical samples that let your minds go on an astral-journey rite away!
Now, as you may see on my label scan this record shows release date 2000 whereas in discogs it says 1998. also the main title is spelled differently but still it has same runout as my copy…. If anyone knows more bout that then please share some light in the comments section…thx!
The third release on the Arrakis label was by a cat named BRIZ…
BRIZ who already spit on BBR’s “spityin’” got here his time to shine when he could release his own twelve with the tracks “cannons” that features the Black Narcissist and on the b-side “streets stages”:
“cannons” is a pretty sombre tune with a sec and constantly repeatin’ guitar-sample. “street stages” is my fav on this vinyl. Also pretty dark in its appearance but definitely with some more power/energy behind than the main title….

The wax contains 3 tracks from which I only ripped the burner “off tha wall”…the rest is medium to poor in my rating. Label is Whyoh Ent. and the record was released in 1998.
Production wise is Garsha Vega the man responsible for this piece here and I’m sure you know Garsh also from other productions he did e.g. for NOTS Click and Ei8 (Ei8ghtrak).

This fine piece of vinyl is an ep, pressed on a special 10” format. The name of the ep is “Da Nay-Ba-Hood Goodz & Treats” and it brings some good beats plus two great tracks that feature some totally unknown emcees. This review is about those two rap-songs…
“for the year” is the first banger and features a man on the mic that goes by the name of Tera Lo. The tune is rather sec and laid-back and fits perfectly to the easy flow of Tera Lo!
“darkness surrounds me” is performed by Lord Rebel and as you can imagine by the title already – shit is really sombre!
