Big L - Devil's Son EP


I was under the impression that a typical 'record store day' release was something like a Pearl Jam box set, so I was really surprised to see this. It's a few early Big L tracks packaged on a vinyl EP put out by Sony. It just came out two months ago, and I'm not seeing many sites mentioning it. I believe these were studio recorded sessions that didn't make the cut for his first LP. These were put out on a Japanese bootleg EP that sells for dumb loot, so this is a blessing to have it available for a lower price and with album artwork. I just bought a copy online for around $20 and hoping for good sound quality. Anyone out there who already has a copy, and can fill me in, drop a comment..



Also it's dope that these were given an official release, although it's limited to 3,000 pieces. From what I understood, his father was putting a wrench in some of his material coming out, as well as the documentary that was in the works. Is that finally getting released as well?

QU Hectic

Sad to hear the news of Prodigy passing away. Mobb Deep will forever be one of the illest groups in hip hop. This is QU Hectic, one of their unreleased demo tracks around the Infamous sessions (I'm guessing). This track really takes me back to summer 1995, that Infamous album killed it that summer as well. RIP Prodigy

10 years strong



I've just now reached 700 posts, and this month marks 10 years of Dirty Waters. I probably should have planned ahead with a mix, guests posts, or something extra the way I used to. Maybe that will happen at a later time. Regardless, peace to everyone I've linked with through the site over the years, and to everyone who checks in. DW all day.

Stretch & Bobbito 12-30-1993 (w/Gary Gnu)


Stretch, Bobbito and Lord Sear welcome Gary Gnu to co-host the show. Not sure who this dude is, but he gave some serious heat to everyone in the studio during the mic breaks. I have the last 2 and a half hours here, so you get a lot of good music and the krunch time session (1:24:00).
