rakim allah / 2 years crates of ag / competition


first of all, 2 years crates of ag and no one even noticed...shame on you!!

since i love exclusive white labels/ bootlegs i will dedicate this post to a veteran in the game, rakim allah. there are plenty of unofficial records out there by the master, but i came to choose two of mines.

i once knew more about the background of these recordings but i can't recall it right now. you get eleven tracks of best material, probably not officially released due to sample clearance problems or lack of interest. the first ep should be from around '95/'96 and also exists with a green label. i don't know which pressing came first.

pretty, pretty, pretty dope shit right here, be sure to check this out!


RAKIM "UNRELEASED STUDIO SET" '9x

1. REMEMBER THAT
2. LAST RESORT
3. LIVIN FOR THE CITY
4. I GET VISUAL
5. SHADES OF BLACK REMIX


RAKIM "UNRELEASED SHIT" '96

1. REMEMBER DAT
2. ONCE UPON A RHYME
3. PAID OFF
4. HOW I'M LIVIN'
5. TRYIN' TA WRITE RHYMES
6. BRING IT ON




as mentioned before crates of ag stepped into its 3rd year of existence. as gift i have 1 brand new freestyle professors shirt (Size: XL) to give away.

how you can win this?

well, since halloween is about to happen:

make a picture of yours or a friend of yours. on that picture you stand on your right foot (left one is in the air). you have to hold an 80% peeled banana with your left hand and a record with your right. you have to wear a hat, bandana or wig. in your mouth there has to be a cigar or anything similar.

send the picture to cratesofag at hispeed dot com and win the shirt.


peace,
al
