J Dilla - Won’t Do (Synth Track - Looped)
One for the connoisseur. This was taken from the exclusive-filled set J Rocc did for Benji B’s Deviation show on 1Xtra a while ago. More information on that show here.
One of my personal highlights of the mix, I was inclined to loop the latter half of this tune purely to save the effort of constantly rewinding it - which I found myself doing a lot.(20 plays)
Biggie x Jay Dee - The Ugliest.
Featuring Busta, Nas and others. It’s all about the first verse.
This appeared on DJ Head & MC Proof’s W.E.G.O. Mixtape (1996ish), but went unreleased, apparently due to Busta not wanting to get caught up in East-West beef.(60 plays)
Please excuse the racial slur in the intro. He gets his comeuppance, as you can see here.
Another Jay Dee gem, Track 24, from the first of the 3 Beat Tapes series.(10 plays)
