Storm passed away in 96, but me and B.Original stayed in touch, he's living in ATL now. "Lyrical High" performed by Pashun 'N ' Da Loonatik... they don't rap no more. "Many Styles" performed by 3rd Degree, a duo consisted of Sinister Cee and Stonewall. Stonewall passed away 3 years ago. Me and Sinister Cee stayed in touch, he's in Virginia now. "Destined" performed by B Supa, who was a kid from Queens, NY .. I ain't heard from him since 96 and I dont know nothing bout him...
We did these songs in my home studio, then we went to like three studios to mix them down, finally after 3 months we got em mix at Chung King Studios in NYC ...We were working on volume 2 but it did not happen... everybody went their ways ..."

The Eaze Up Show Presents - A Tribute To DITC Pt.1 - Diamond D

"If you are a true head then you shouldn’t even have to ask who DITC and Diamond D are but if you need a quick history lesson, here we go…
Diamond D (born Joseph Kirkland) is one of Hip-Hop’s greatest triple threats, this Bronx legend can rip mics & has a distinctive voice and flow, D Squizzy makes truly fat and head nodding beats (often with famous breaks used before other beat makers), rumbling bass lines, dusty Jazz & Soul etc loops and ill horns and he can cut up a storm too, DD was the one that actually coined the term “best Producer on the mic”
Diamond got his first break (pun intended lol) carrying record crates for the legendary DJ Jazzy Jay and DJing in local spots but first came to prominence as a producer with Ultimate Force’s classic “I’m Not Playing” single way back in 1989.
This 3 ½ hour tribute mix (over 50 tracks deep) showcases his production, microphone techniques & remix steez. Massive salutes to Diamond-D & The DITC crew." - Dj Jazzywhut!

Real II Reel ‎- Flip Off The Vibe / Let The Words Do The Talkin' - 1993

12" - 1993 - Phatheadz Records 

This wax was released in 1993 on Phatheadz Records by the New Jersey-Based duo Real II Reel. The duo was formed in 1990 by Ed Gledhill aka Ease and Nick D'Amato aka Nick Nice, 2 high school friends from Pennsauken NJ, located 10 min outside of Philadelphia. During a little tchat with Ease, He told me that they quickly changed the name to Phatheadz a few months after this release. You can find the song "Sureshot" by Phatheadz on youtube as well. Many songs were recorded and they almost inked a deal with Ruff House (Columbia) Records in Philly back in 93-94 but it fell apart... 

The 12" is composed of two tracks "Flip Off The Vibe" and "Let The Words Do The Talkin' " available in their Radio/Vocal and Instrumental versions, everything produced by Ease who also managed Phatheadz Records. 

Good news for the record collectors, a reissue is dropping this year with unreleased tracks on an indie record label... more info coming soon Fellas ! 

Mad Props to Ease

Gotham Kidz -Tha Coming - 1996

12" - 1996 - Atch Records 

"Tha Coming" EP came out in 1996 on Atch Records, a Record Label based in Houston, Texas and managed by Charles "Atch" Atchison who unfortunately passed away a few years ago. 
The wax was released by a group named Gotham Kidz, comprised of Eric Segue aka Quickhands Expands aka Eazy and Everall Jackson aka The Real E Love, who both came from New Orleans, Louisiana.

 In 1994, they released their first single "Here I Come /What It Is Gonna Be" under the name of Premier. It also came out on Atch Records and the tracks were produced by him, Quickhands Expands and DJ Razor Cut. 

12" - 1994 - Atch Records 

Razor Cut : "Everol, Eazy and Me grew up together but in different hoods, we were always into music... I was a DJ, Eazy was a DJ also and Everol was always rapping.  I started a group called PMW and put out a song called "Spliffed Out" with one of my home boys and it got big then started to do songs and Eazy would scratch to them in his garage then Everol would rap to them." ... that's how everything started for the group. 

After Premier's 12-inch, Dj Razor Cut went in a separate way doing his things but still kept in touch with them. The Real E Love and Quickhands Expands formed Gotham Kidz and released "Tha Coming" EP which was the first batch of tracks from the album "Back To the Essence" which unfortunately never saw the light of day...
