On Experience Part 2 - Original Mix"
friendly, this is a recycled compilation.
Not really. But most of the tracks were previously available,
and every hip hop head, that likes to think of himself
as in the know, should already have copped those tracks.
With a few extra, previously unreleased cuts thrown
in to give the head a reason, why he should buy this
too, this compilation nevertheless is nice for two reason.
First it gives the new cat on the block another chance
to listen to the lyrical b-boy stance of the good people
at Eastern Conference, and second its somewhat
nice to have all those tracks on one little plate, so
that you dont always have to change the 12"
after one track.
This goes through all
the good stuff, like the original "B-Boy
Document", featuring Mike Zoot, Mos
Def & El-P (Company Flow). Mad Skillz also resurfaces
with "Lick The Balls",
while the b-side ("The Conceited Bastard")
of that 12" has to be one of the notable misses.
Both tracks from the first Smut Peddlers 12" are
on here too: "One By One"
and "The Whole Repertoire".
Mr Eon spits "the outcome is known just like fixed
elections", while Cage (other half of the Smut
Peddlers) comments the competitions status with
"you can't see me wit your pinned up eyelids".
High & Mighty, owner
of Eastern Conference, give us the non album track "Cranial
Lumps", the original version of "Open
Mic Night" (feat. Baby Black & Rasheed),
the flip of the "B-Boy Document" 12":
"Mind, Soul & Body"
and "The Meaning"
(b-side of the "Open Mic Night" 12").
"Hands On Experience"
finds is way onto this compilation in the original version
(same rhymes, different beat than on the album), and
another version featuring El-P and Bobbito, with a very
smooth beat. Also notable is "All
In Together" by The EC All Stars (feat.
Mr Eon, Baby Black & Pauly Yams). All three emcees
flow nicely over a heavy guitar lick beat.
The unreleased tracks
on here are the Alchemist blessed "E=MC2".
Eon is sharing rhymes with Evidence (of Dilated Peoples),
and kicks the line "lyrical trial fest, turning
thugs Amish". And another unreleased track is the
Original Mix of the previously mentioned "Hands
While this is essential
for all the High & Mighty / Eastern Conference fanatics,
recommended for all those that missed the stuff on here,
its still worth checking out for those that know
most of these tracks.
