Holy Grails: ASI-1020 ft. Ron B

The "Holy Grails" part of this blogspot is more like a personal museum for me as a true hip-hop and collectable vinyl fan. I fully appreciate the feedback I received from some of you also if it was partly negative.

Even though this record has been posted on blogspots and there is no product to be purchased from a record label or artist but this record is my personal holy grail and due to the name of this blogspot it's definitely worth to devote some attention. 

In 1990 "Ron B and The Step 2 Crew" from upstate New York released a 12" featuring the two tracks "Stitch By Stitch" and "Live Entertainer" on Asiatic Records. Although this record is a perfect example for a "random rap" classic (like a one hit wonder of a hip-hop artist) the record came with a full coloured picture cover.

The catchy piano sample [?where is this originally from?] but also the typical elements like scratches or a melody free drums medley provide "Stitch By Stitch" this unique character of an early 90's magnum opus.

A1: Stitch By Stitch (Vocal)
A2: Stitch By Stitch (Instrumental)
B1: Live Entertainer (Vocal)
B2: Live Entertainer (Instrumental)




My special thanks goes out to Ron B and The Step 2 Crew and the friendly seller of this record who made this holy grail mine 23 years after the official release year. Mission complete!

  1. this is why 90% of this "random rap" shit sucks: a boring rapper rhyming over a solid beat. nuthin' special, just mediocre stuff released in the same year when great music like one for all, step in the arena, funky technician, amerikkka's most wanted etc. dropped.
