Here's four of the better tracks off it. Peace to Ajent Orange, Pokerface, Messy Flesh, Kiilani, Jazz-E, Mr. Ooh, and Angela Bautista. The heavy "Remain Anonymous" era Ras Kass influence here makes this pretty backpacker, but what do you expect from the Bay in '97. And is more of that nasty style necessarily a bad thing? No, it is not. Further proof that even Bay-bred backpackers were generally up on some classic breakbeat NY-centric shit, the first track, "Paydert," incorporates Bob James' banger "Nautilus" to stony success. The third track, "Triple Orgasm" is the one that Jayswift's engineer/producer Mark Jarvis helped co-produce.
Eons' 2¢: I was the assistant engineer on the Freak Brothers sessions in 2000. Brain and Extrakd came into the studio I worked at to lay down the basic tracks on 2" tape for their Ghost Dog inspired rap record. Brain was an old friend of the studio owner and she gave them a few days to do whatever the fuck they wanted. They repaid her by bringing in great found and triple digit bottles of wine. One night they had some rappers strike through: MD (aka Def Emcee X), Trunks and some other guy who's name I didn't catch when they all rolled in. Oh yeah and Smooth Triumph flaked! Haha! Anyway, it was late, I'd probably been at the studio for 12 hours at this point, taking notes on the track sheets, switching reels, patching, etc. The unnamed MC gets his turn and rips it. When I ask his name for the track sheet he says, "Messy Flesh". I was still asking myself "Did that guy really say his name was Messy Flesh?" while cleaning up after everyone had left. Glad Luke dug this one up because I had never heard it before.
