nipskcab

when i got the nipskcab ep from my man tobi, i first thought "nipskcab- what a weird name". but then i had a closer look at the label. there were two producers noted: "backspin and the vibe chemist". so the name was now clear to me; backspin backwards. then i dug out my nitty gritty 12" to see that mr. backspin was credited there as producer as well. but this time he had an alias which was "the vibe chemist". so my guess is the label of the nipsckab fam ep is wrong. it's just one person. apparently backspin already produced for leaders of the new school in '91 and afterwards for the solo project of busta and also for rampage.

i'm not sure about this but i think the nipskcab fam consists of backspin (whose real name is marlon king), publik anounsa, hycelph da supreme child and maybe the mc featured on the nitty gritty record, whose name i don't know. i'm pretty sure they're from brooklyn.

backspin was involved in productions for one or probably both publik anounsa 12inches as well. unfortunately i sold my copy of the '95 release "comin' from crooklyn jointz" last year and didn't save a scan on my computer before. but i have a decent rip from back then and also found the ebaypicture at least. in '96 or '97 publik anounsa and hycelph da supreme child had a very nice split 12". i'm still looking for that one.

you got additional info to share? corrections? please use the comments section, thanks!
