Just heard Nucleus's "Jam On It" via skratchlab
My co-worker said that's a song that makes you want to break out the cardboard! Indeed...whenever I hear this song I'm instantly seized by the memory of break dancing in the park and my neighbors garage circa early 80's. I had to be around 6 or 7 years old. Before I digress into a "hip hop was so innocent then" stupor, some other notable mentions about this song (which I couldn't find an mp3 to):
One of the first beats I ever assisted on, circa 94, we plucked the bassline from Jam On It. Needless to say it didn't propel us to international acclaim, however just using it made me feel good (respect). Now that I think about it, I don't know where my 12 inch to "Jam On It" is (blasphemous)?
And then on some grimy internationally Thomas Crown steez, my man Ammbush pressed a 12" about 5 years ago where he basically just slowed down the sampled beat to "Jam On It." According to my sources, when he was on tour in Australia with Aceyalone the crowd knew the song word for word. Gangsterous Illusions of purity.
Then I did a google for the song, the most interesting highlights to me were two Z-trip interviews and one Feenom interview (gulp).
