Crooklyn Dodgers ’94 & Crooklyn Dodgers ’95 Trade Uniforms In This ILL Blend (Audio)
DJ Hellee Hooper (a play on famed Soul II Soul/Bjork/No Doubt producer Nellee Hooper), swapped the vocals of Special Ed, Masta Ace, and Buckshot from “Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers” with the instrumental to the 1995 original (Chubb Rock, O.C., Jeru The Damaja).
The results (thus “94.5”) trick your mind, and knock in a way that makes you want to watch Crooklyn and Clockers, and jump into the Delorean back to the mid-1990s altogether. What’s kind of tongue in cheek about this is that A Tribe Called Quest, not DJ Premier, produced the first (while many assumed it was Premo based on the chopped-down sound versus A.T.C.Q.’s jazzy standard).
Play this for a fellow Head and see if they even notice.
What will Spike Lee think?
#BonusBeat: Did you know that Q-Tip originally wanted Ol’ Dirty Bastard and allegedly a pre-Reasonable Doubt Jay-Z on the original?
