TRIIP - Keep It Flowin' - 1994

12" - 1994 - SDXL Records

Saeida Hall a.k.a Triip came from Park Slope, Brooklyn. 
In 1994, her first and only single named "Keep It Flowin'" came out on SDXL Records. It was released on tape (Radio version and Funk Mix version) and on vinyl (Keep It Flowin' Re-Mix), everything fully produced by George Thorpe a.k.a Self for Down Low Hudz Productions.

As you can read on the label of the record, the original version of the single was supposed to be on the forthcoming album named "Jazzalistics" but the album never came out. 

In July 1995, Triip was invited by Stretch and Bobbito on WKCR for the promo of her 12", here is the interview and freestyle recorded during that show. The same year she featured on the track "Da Ladies In The House" released by Big Kap and featuring Da Ladies, a collective of female emcees who consisted of Bahamadia, Lauryn Hill, Precise, Triip and Uneek. 
One year later she worked with Nick Wiz and recorded the track "No Tricks in 96", which will be included in the Cellar Sounds Volume 5 1992-1998 released by Gentleman's Relief Records in 2017... that's the last song officially recorded by Triip.

ILL BILL & Stu Bangas - Cannibal Hulk - 2019

LP - 2019 - Uncle Howie Records / Fat Beats Records 

"Cannibal Hulk is the collaboration between producer Stu Bangas and lyricist ILL BILL. Prior to ever working together both Bill and Stu traveled in similar circles. Both heavily worked with Vinnie Paz (Jedi Mind Tricks/AOTP) which led to Stu being on Bill's The Grimy Awards and Bill being featured on Stu’s albums with Esoteric and Blacastan. Having worked together on those tracks is what led to the manifestation of this project. Add to the scenario their love of comic books and the concept Cannibal Hulk was born. With both feeling most at home with aggressive music, this album sonically sounds exactly as its title indicates. Can Hulk features Vinnie Paz, Goretex, Slaine, Snak The Ripper and DJ Eclipse."  

Available on Vinyl, CD & Cassette 

Fair 1 - Blackbook EP - 2018

EP - 2018 - Fa Records

"Introducing the first EP by underground emcee Fair 1 titled "Blackbook". After a long hiatus, “Blackbook” is Fair 1's followup record to the Fame 12" single that featured El da Sensei on a classic graffiti-themed track. “Blackbook” collects six tracks, breaks, and an instrumental of the lead single “C.O.C.A”. 

"C.O.C.A" (Come One, Come All) features the legendary Sadat X of Brand Nubian and standout Canadian rapper Anonymous Twist. The artists trade verses on a boombap production and cuts by the Netherlands beatsmith Soulitaire. The theme of the track is teaching, learning, and passing on "collected wisdom" as each artist brings their unique point of view and experience to the verses. 

Also on the A-side, "Grown Up" is a storytelling track over spacey soul-inspired beat production by Japanese producer Shu. The track takes on two first-person perspectives of a couple whose goals of music and family pull them apart told in 8 bar segments. 

With roots as a graffiti writer, Fair 1 teams up with El Da Sensei of the Artifacts on a graffiti-themed anthem titled “Fame”. The song is in the spirit of “Wrong Side of the Tracks” and KRS One’s “Out for Fame”."  - Fair 1's Bandcamp
