12" - Timeless Ent. 

The original 12" came out in 1996 on Timeless Entertainment, but the pic above shows the Japanese bootleg released in 2010. Sorry but I've never found an OG in a record store and can't afford the copies for sale on the internet ... First track "Anyday" was produced by Lou Esco and contains a sample of "Help (Somebody Please)" performed by the O'Jays. The other track on the B-side "Corners 2 Corporations" was produced by Arthur Rhoden, real name of J-Funk.
