Scarface – Deeply Rooted: The Lost Files

Scarface
Deeply Rooted: The Lost Files
Let’s Talk, LLC under exclusive license to BMG Rights Management (US) LLC
Release date: December 15th

Scarface, the legendary rapper of Geto Boys fame, has decided to drop a continuation project of his last album ‘Deeply Rooted’. ‘The Lost Files’ is a combination of remixed tracks from the 2015 release & additional new joints. The typical Scarface storytelling vibe is ever present in his vocals, but added to that is a reworking of Public Enemy’s classic ‘Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos”, entitled ‘Black Still’.

The music production style varies, offering something for most Hip Hop listening preferences without being overtly commercial sounding. After all it’s ‘Deeply Rooted’.
(Rashad Unique)

Tracklist:
1. Black Still
2. Concrete Couch (Hot Seat Alternate Version)
3. Live That Life
4. Mental Exorcism (Alternate Version)
5. Same Ol Same
6. That’s Where I’m At
7. The Rebound
8. One Day Closer
9. Gone (Keep It Movin Alternate Version)
10.Dollar Bill (Anything Alternate Version)

Pete Rock/InI – Lost Sessions

Instrumental Album Release

Pete Rock/InI
Lost Sessions
Vinyl Digital
Release date: November 24th

Described as “unreleased music from the InI era”, this latest album is another collection of archived Pete Rock instrumentals. As it’s the InI era (InI were a group produced by Pete Rock which included his brother Grap Luva & Rob-O), we’re looking at around 1995 for when these tracks were made.

If you’re a long time fan of Pete’s production, when you have a listen, you’ll recognize some of the beats from previous vocal tracks. Get in to the session & ‘Reminisce…’

Wu-Tang – The Saga Continues

Wu-Tang
The Saga Continues
36 Chambers, LLC/Entertainment One U.S.
Release date: October 13th

“Wu-Tang” & not “Wu-Tang Clan”??? What’s the deal with that??? Well, it’s because the album features all the Clan members except U-God, due to his legal issues with the group over royalties. Therefore, the group name was shortened to reflect this.

In a noticeable change of procedure, the album has been produced in full by their long time designated DJ, Allah Mathematics. The album also has numerous guest features including Chris Rivers & Killah Priest. Redman also guests on the album, making no less than 3 appearances. The deceased Sean Price’s cameo appearance on the album suggests that this may have more than a few tracks pulled out from the archives on here.

Whether or not this is a compilation album, or an official one (opinion is very divided), this collection of Wu joints will no doubt satisfy the appetites of their legions of fans worldwide. It gives them a return to the sound that they’ve been salivating for after some ‘experimental’ efforts in the past.

The Saga Continues…
