two of a kind

there are lp-tracks out there you wish to get released as 12", promo or even bootleg. and then just when you gave up the hope you find out about some scarce pressings you've never imagined to be existing. exactly that was the way i felt when i found out about these two...

elektra and sureshot entertainment released two promo's of busta rhymes and rah digga back in '00 (i guess). pressed up in good old germany.

on the busta rhymes one you'll get "enjoy da ride", "show me what you got" (both produced by jay dee) and most notably "the heist" featuring raekwon, ghostface & roc marciano of the un with an awesome production by large pro. on top you get all three instrumentals as well. stones throw used the beat of "show me what you got" on their first white label in '02 on jaylib's "the message".

the tracks featured on the rah digga release: "lessons of today" by primo and pete rocks "what they call me". again, both with instrumentals.

it's always good to see, that there are more records out there than expected. does anyone know how many copies of these were done?

1. ENJOY DA RIDE (PROD. JAY DEE)

I can exactly tell you how many were made of these: 500 each. I did those in conjunction with WARNER BROS. in Germany. there are a few more exclusive titles flowin around with some dope production on it, Terror Squad, Fat Joe, O.D.B., etc...
Keep on diggin...
