Chopped Herring: CHQU33NS02 ft. Mayhem Lauren

Whenever cats talk about the recent resurgence and re-establishment of NYC Hip Hop, the name Meyhem Lauren is never left out. Hailin' from the borough of Queens, this die hard Lo-Life vet made his first MC appearance on J-Love's (Ghostface's long-serving tour DJ) "King of What I Do Part 6" 2004 mixtape. Most of you Herring cats will need little introduction to Mey, but for those that don't know (the shame!), he featured on last summer's Chopped Herring Records release 'Welcome to the Great Outdoors EP' alongside his homeboys Action Bronson and Shaz Illyork. That was the first and only vinyl release from those Queens' natives and this limited edition EP is the second.

Meyhem Lauren currently features on the Action Bronson and Statik Selektah album 'Well Done' and has a full length album in the pipeline with said Action Bronson and an album droppin in 2012 produced by legendary DITC producer Buckwild.

Like part one of the Queens series, the first 75 copies are on yellow vinyl (reppin' the N,R,Q NYC Subway lines) and the next 75 copies are on blue vinyl (reppin' the E train). The rest (200 copies) will be pressed on black vinyl. Place your order on www.choppedherringrecords.com.

Sure Shot: SS-002 ft. Paul Nice ft. Rhymefest

The second SURE SHOT is a dope Remix within Paul Nice's 7" series and it's coming soon! After selling out of his limited edition, coloured vinyl of his first Sure Shot! release in 24 hours (a remix of Jay-Z's Public Service Announcement), Paul returns with his larger-than-life remix of "Brand New" featuring Rhymefest and Kanye West! Originally commissioned by Mark Ronson and played only once on his East Village Radio program, the finished product was delivered a bit too late in the day to warrant an official release.

This 7" is strictly limited, a one-time pressing of only 300 red vinyl copies. Every copy hand-numbered and signed by Paul Nice himself. These will only be available directly via the pop-up store and will not be available in any retail outlets! And once they're gone, that's it. 

A: Paul Nice ft. Rhymefest & Kanye West - Brand New Remix
B: Paul Nice - Brand New Remix Instrumental
