Slice Of Spice: SSR-005(.5) ft. K-Def & LL Cool J
Back in 1994 K-Def was working on some beats out of the B Room in Marly Marl’s House Of Hits when LL Cool J walked in on his session and said “let’s make some tracks together”. Uncle L had always wanted to rhyme on a track using the famous ESG breakbeat ‘UFO’, so he had Def lay it down with some scratches and then went to town with the mic. Both thought they had a sure fire hit on their hands but unfortunately it was never used. The DAT tape of the studio session was feared lost for several years before it eventually turned up stuck behind a radiator! Now, 17 years later, K-Def and Slice-of-Spice are proud to present ‘Year Of The Hip Hop’ in all its vinyl glory.
Slice-of-Spice has teamed up with K-Def and Ghetto Man Music to finally release the almost mythical LL Cool J joint 'Year Of The Hip Hop' on vinyl. After several failed attempts to get this unreleased gemm on vinyl, over different formats and with different track listings, Slice Of Spice makes things happen.
Get ready for blast off as they drop an incredible limited edition 10" of this fully restored, and beast of a track. It's been remastered by K-Def off the original DAT tape, and is ready for vinyl, with a vocal A-side and TV track Instrumental on the flip side.
Once again Joe Buck will be blessing y'all with another of his incredible works of art for the cover. As always there will be no expense spared on making the total package a true thing of beauty, so stay tuned for further details around the 10th / 11th of September. Limited to 500 copies, only 150 on orange coloured wax.
And here's something for the real collectors out there!
While checking out a new pressing plant and a different plating process (DMM) for our Signature Sevens series, SOS had a small batch of test pressings made-up of 'Year Of The Hip Hop'. Twenty copies were pressed in total. Never to be released in this format, All copies are hand stamped and numbered. 10 copies have been distributed to those involved in the project, and the other 10 are up for grabs.
