SIR VICIOUS SO SMOOTH LIKE A RIMLESS SWISH (PART 2)

Ok, now that you’ve had a little time to absorb all that old school flavor from yesterday, here’s the continuation.

This track is reeeal dirty, especially for a New York rapper from the mid-80s.  I might expect some shit like this from Too $hort or somebody like that, but I feel like the east coast is a little more timid to go this far on record, but Just-Ice fuckin goes there.

Just-Ice – That Girl is a Slut

The most obvious track to bring up in relation to this track is Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick’s “La Di Da Di” (yes, the inspiration for Snoop and Dre’s “Lodi Dodi“) which it seems came out just a little before the Just-Ice track did.  But what’s especially exciting for me is knowing where the drums came from on this track from the great King Geedorah.

King Geedorah – The Fine Print

Yeahhh, 2/3 slow, 1/3 amazing.  That’s a formula I can get behind.

And if you just can’t get enough Just-Ice-inspired music, here’s a Redman track that reworks the song that got all this started in the first place.

Redman – It’s Like That (feat. K-Solo)

SIR VICIOUS SO SMOOTH LIKE A RIMLESS SWISH (PART 1)

Damn, stars must be aligned in the Madlib galaxy this past week, cuz I just stumbled across ANOTHER little nugget from a Madlib production.  This one’s just a little snippet, but totally unmistakeable.  I had no idea where that vocal sample came from at the beginning of this track, or even what the words being said were.

Madvillain – Supervillain Theme

Now I know both!

Just-Ice – Cold Gettin’ Dumb

Not only that, but if you go a little further into that Just-Ice album, there’s another little snippet sample that pops up in the MF Doom track I talked about in this post!

Just-Ice – Latoya

There are actually even more notable moments from that same Just-Ice album that I wanna talk about, but I’m gonna hit you with ’em in another installment, I feel like that’s enough for one day’s worth.  Stay tuned!
