Vrse Murphy Bandcamp

A quick post today because I'm short on time. Peep game on Vrse Murphy's Bandcamp page where he has a few instrumental albums available. It's been a while since I've listened to any of these but I was listening to an old Sacred Hoop tape today and it reminded me how underrated a producer he is.

Westakoasta P-Minus Interview

Kaliyuga Pro & Pseudzero have put together a great interview with the legendary P-Minus over on the Westakoasta blog. I remember spending hours on the old Atak site, reading about new albums and trying to understand their international shipping rates....turns out the rates were very easy to understand, I just wasn't very smart. 

I had the pleasure of meeting P-Minus during my first trip to the Bay area in the early 2000's and I got a first hand look at how hard he hustled to sell music. I kept in touch with P into the mid and late 2000's, after the site had shut down. At that time he was still hustling rare music he would stumble on through a small mailing list...I think that was how I got my hands on an original copy of the UHB 1 tape. P was and always will be one of the dopest people out there.

Inspector Double Negative ‎– Hip Hop On The Moon

I picked this album up at Groove Merchant in San Francisco a bunch of years back. I didn't know much about it at the time and it seemed interesting based on the covers. It's a bit of a different album, mostly instrumental with some scratching, however there are a few tracks with the raps.

If anyone has the 'Inspector Double Negative ‎– I Need All The Help I Can Get' album I'd love to check it out.
