Biazee - Just Parlay / Mindflow - 1993

12" - 1993 - Capitol B.I. Music 

Here is the wax released on Capitol B.I Music by Biazee from Irvington, NJ in 1993. Both tracks of the records "Just Parlay" and "Mindflow" were produced by Frank Hatchett a.k.a  GL Phatchumpe a.k.a Git Loose who was a member of the group called the Orphans (Dea Orfinz). The connection between Biazee and Git Loose happened with the help of Git Loose's cousin Kevin Morse (Power Move Entertainment) who managed Biazee at that time.  

The lead single "Just Parlay" on the A-side features Dea Orfinz (GL, Heavy Hitter, Mack 10 & Sheed) and an other NJ-based emcee named Murda One, affiliated to the Orfinz and also a member of an other group called Ransom (Runamuk & Murda One).

Demo Tape : Big Nique ‎- Untitled Demos

Here is an emcee I'd like to find... Big Nique !
First time I've listened to these 3 dope demos recorded circa '93-'94, it was when Sneak Tipp uploaded the snippets on his youtube channel in 2015. No info about this artist except that he might be from Westchester County, NY (Yonkers, New Rochelle, Mount Vernon...) due to the Area code of the phone number. 

If you've got more info about this emcee or RoamAloneMusic, please feel free to contact me... while waiting check the snippets !!

12" - 1995 - Cornerboy Prod 

A physical copy of their debut 12" is really hard to find nowadays... the wax came out in 1995 on Cornerboy Prod and both tracks "Payback" and "Don't Worry" were produced by Melvin "Ruggedness" Carter (of Ruggedness Madd Drama)

I would have liked to give you more info about the Lyrical Terrorists... I was in contact with DRK and he was down to answer all my questions but it seems he changed his mind and decided not to do it ...

Here are some pics of the crew published in the Philly Street Buzz Magazine (May 1993) and shot at the Rap Underground North Hip-Hop Showcase. 

Big Up to Kenny White !
Props to Digital Stimulation for the tracks.
