Here is what we found out on this:

Back in 1994 K-Def was working on some beats out of the B Room in Marley Marl’s House Of Hits when LL Cool J walked in on his session and said “let’s make some tracks together”. Uncle L had always wanted to rhyme on a track using the famous ESG breakbeat ‘UFO’, so he had Def lay it down with some scratches and then went to town with the mic. Both thought they had a sure fire hit on their hands but unfortunately it was never used.

The DAT tape of the studio session was feared lost for several years before it eventually turned up stuck behind a radiator! Now, 17 years later, K-Def and Slice-of-Spice are proud to present ‘Year Of The Hip Hop’ in all its vinyl glory.

As with all Slice-of-Spice pressings, no expense is being spared for this vinyl labor of love. Outside of a full color cover, with a 3mm spine, the special limited edition version comes on solid orange vinyl, with individual gold stamp numbering.

Once again we’re coming at you with strong cover art from the legendary Joe Buck, and personally we think this is his best one yet!

This release is not only for the real hip hop heads, it’s for the vinyl connoisseur. DON’T MISS OUT!

    LL doin’ what he do… Killin’ emcees and destroying beats! So wish he would comeback with a new LP that didn’t have mass media/women/r&b fans in mind and just did raw boom bap with production from Marley, Preem, Pete, etc… I bet he could still make an incredible album!

    “to all the sell-outs…..that’s frontin with their shirts of” – how ironic….dope track though

  • Rizzo says:

    Pretty dope cover art of LL up until ’94 – I wouldn’t want to see the ’95 and after cover.
