Thrust - Do You Understand (SCAM Remix)

I've been after this one since it came out in 1996, and finally caught a copy at a good price. This is a pretty rare release by Thrust from Canada. A lot of his stuff was produced by Frankenstein, but this remix was done by SCAM. He used a different part of the same Billy Cobham sample 'Heather' that was used for Souls of Mischief's '93 Til Infinity, and always liked the flip.

Re-Up: The Showdown

There was a flea market on Rt 1/9 here in Jersey (US1) that used to sell records and mixtapes. This is a mixtape I copped there sometime in 95, DJ Iroc with 'The Showdown'. There is a bunch of exclusive freestyles he's got on there, KRS, Method Man, Pete Rock, Shyeim, Channel Live, Bootcamp, Cella Dwellas, O.C., King Just, 10 Theives; definitely worth a listen.

Thanks to Digital Stimulation for the re-up

R.I.P. Murals

Shout out to all the graffiti artists who do R.I.P. murals, and credit due to all the artists and photographers on these. Some of them may not necessarily be 'R.I.P.' murals like the Big L, as much as tributes, but you get the idea. Here are some of my favorites. If I've missed any good ones, drop a link in the comments..
