Kavasci - C.I. - 1999

12" - 1999 - Butter Wax Records 

Let's talk about this rare 12" which was released in 1999 on Butter Wax Records by Kavasci from Mattapan, Boston. Everything I know about Kavasci is that he was also known under the name of Jama a.k.a C Jama the Star Child. He was an emcee but also a producer and in the early 90s he was a member of the group Urban Dwellers (a reunion between the groups Phat Phive and Mikst Nutz) consisting of M-Slash, Ripshop, Bad Dred and the producers Rich-5 from Mattapan and DJ Buda a.k.a Buda Roc from Roxbury Mission Hill area.

This wax contains 4 tracks recorded at Waltz and Metropolis studios, "Culture Body" produced by Rich-5, "Cash Flow" produced by Buda, "Roulette" produced by Kavasci, and "Isreal" produced by Buda.

Butter wax Records was managed by Kavasci himself and this 12" is his first and only official release, which became expensive and very hard to find nowadays. Unreleased tracks exist but he never dropped them due to some personal problems at the time... 

Mad Props to Buda & Ripshop

  1. Je regrette tellement d'avoir vendu le mien il y a quelques années pour 50 euros. Et dire que c'est moi qui est mis les premiers sons sur internet après l'avoir trouvé sur ebay à 10 dollars :(
