The Game [single]
(1995, TTH Marketing)
cassette rip @ 320
Liner notes credit DJ Mannie Fresh and DJ Duck and I wonder how those credits are split. I think "Nigga Is Real" is a giveaway Fresh track but then again none of these stray too far from the template, so its hard to tell. 2 Blakk shouts out to both producers in "Second Line Jump" so the division of labor may be overlapping.
I'm interested the history of this dated explicit lyrics sticker. I was thinking at first that this might be a pre-Tipper sticker, but it turns out that's been around since Ice-T's Rhyme Pays. I've actually only seen this sticker on New Orleans tapes, but that's likely coincidental.
All three songs are good enough on here, I really do appreciate having the "Second Line Jump" instrumental, though. Partly because I may want to put it to extra-curricular use someday but also because I think instrumental NOLA Brass Rap is in itself something worth listening to. I'm curious: how many other people listen to instrumentals like its full music?
