Chopped Herring: CHCHOS3N01 ft. Chosen Few

"B-Nice and his boy B-Love aka Lovey Brown had met at Copiague High School through a mutual passion for music. B-Nice played drums in the school chorus and picked up DJ'ing skills from friends of his brother who was 7 years his senior. Nice's grandfather was a close friend of the father of De La Soul's Maseo and the boys had met at an early age. They started to hang out through mutual friend DJ Stitches, reputedly one of the founding members of De La Soul. As you know, De La were a big deal in the late 80's and while writing their [incredible] second album "De La Soul is Dead" they guest-produced and featured on The Chosen Few project to help their boys and fellow Amityville artists. They took the demo to Puffy in 1991 who was then with Uptown, to Lyor Cohen at Rush and to Chrysalis and Virgin among others. They got great feedback, but no deal. As often happens the group disbanded but morphed into a new group Fourty Dogs. The demos were locked away and never heard again." [source]

Six2Six: SIX-21 ft. Constant Deviants

Constant Deviants: Brooklyn duo of rapper M.I. and producer DJ Cutt drop their new 15 track strong full-length album "Avant Gard" on 2LP.

"Avant Garde is a street-crafted solid slab of golden era substance. Maintaining one foot in the past and one in the present/future, they keep their relevance because they understand their genre's legacy, not to mention their own contribution to the art form." [source]

A: Avant Garde
A: End All Be All
A: Breathin'
A: It's Like That ft. Aye Wun
B: Machine Gun
B: Side B
B: IM Wit It
