A1 - Dirty
A2 - Whatudo
A3 - Ghost
B1 - True
B2 - Checks
B3 - Corners feat. Fiasco

"NOTE: This is NOT the Mudkids from Indiana, we hail from Washington, DC, USA, banded together in 1995 as M.U.D.K.I.D.S., dropped 'The D.U.S.T. Prophecy' in 1998. We have communicated with the other Mudkids back in the 90's via email but we are NOT them, they're dope but we have our own sound. Thank you for listening, PEACE!

Who Are The MUDKIDS:
M.U.D.K.I.D.S. (Men Under Divine Kause In Desperate Situations) Eros (aka Challz Brown), Super Fresh, Stryfe aka Wiz One, 4Eyez The Ugly Professor, Fiasco The Ghetto Embryo, Savage Beast, Colossus (& affiliate Baby Jewels who is not featured on the LP)
About the M.U.D.K.I.D.S. Mudkids is a collective of MC's hailing from the Washington DC region. For years they took to the streets with a pure, uncut sound that preached unrelenting realness and complex wordplay all while being steadfast in their belief that real, gritty, hardcore lyrics and skills were the only thing acceptable.
The M.U.D.K.I.D.S. (Men Under Divine Kause In Desperate Situations) pooled their resources to create The D.U.S.T. Prophecy (Desolate Underground Street Truths) to become what many consider a classic masterpiece but somehow it was lost to most outside of the area and even had very little internet presence aside from a European music lover finding one copy of the their 2 sided single 'Dirty' and posting it on YouTube. So for the annals of posterity we have dusted off 'The DUST Prophecy' and uploaded for true lovers of pure hip hop, unintended for commercial dissemination, just for the love of the art.. we present it in entirety. There is alot of back story which will all be told in time... but for now... enjoy the sound!" - CLBMG

Scott Free - Don't Fight the Flavor EP - 2019

EP - 2019 - Hip-Hop Enterprise 

"Here we go with the very first recordings Noiseman produced back in 1993! In the early days Noiseman teamed up with Scott Free and they rocked many shows all over the US. Opening up for names like Naughty by Nature, Das Efx, C-Funk, House of Pain, Gravediggaz, Lighter Shade of Brown, Goodie Mob, Lord Digga, Paris, Lord Finesse, Masta Ace, Assassin, MC Breed, Mystic, Total Devastation, DJ Quick and many more.
Being in an area where G-Funk reigned supreme they never got the props they deserved and it was an uphill battle trying to get their name and music out to the public. Prepare to be blown away because what you will hear is nothing but top notch 1993 hip-hop!" - Hip-Hop Enterprise

Big Rob / Lil Sprout ‎- Treason - 1996.

12" - 1996 - Uprising Records  

In 1996 came out this wax released by the duo composed of Big Rob and Lil Sprout. If you don't know them, you need to know that Big Rob was the producer and Lil Sprout was the Emcee. This is their second 12" and it was released on Uprising Records. It was composed of 4 tracks, "Treason" in its original and remix version, "Mental Stress" and "Hard Core". Another good indie 12" which should be part of your record collection !

Recently I was lucky to talk with Lil Sprout and he gave me more info about their duo : 

Lil Sprout : « I was doing open mics in Baltimore at these freestyle events. And being from NY my flow was winning all these events... I went to Morgan State, but, just started selling mad weed and dropped out of school. A mutual friend introduced me to Big Rob, he had mad beats and a studio, and he was the financial backing behind that project. He was from Baltimore and we hit the studio and started doing songs. We went down to Jack the Rapper in Atlanta one year. Trying to get recognized I was all freestyle back then... not much written rhymes. I was a comedian more than a rapper. But Rob was on top of me to master my craft and focus on songs. 
Big Rob and his father managed Uprising Records, they financed and created this record label. They took me in and robs family really looked out for me. His dad was a reggae artist from the Bob Marley era, and he really had a good Jamaican singing group that was pretty good. »

Unfortunately this wax was their last release and the duo stopped after that...But unreleased materials exist and it seems Big Rob has got all this stuff in his stash...

Lil Sprout : « Life kept getting in the way...  I got arrested and ended up going back to New York and the focus changed. The buzz and the marketing wasent going well. We didn’t have the right marketing plan. Unreleased tracks were fire man... I wish we had a better platform cause our stuff was better than lots of shit that was out then. »

 Mad Props to Lil Sprout.
