$yndicate Vinyl Rips


Over a year ago I put up a Rhyme $yndicate post with a few mp3's, this post is a bit different, this contains tracks ripped off my vinyl of remixes or almost impossible tracks to find on mp3 format. As much as I still love Ice T, there's no doubt that T's best days are way behind him. My favourite hip hop memories is from when Ice T was releasing shit like Iceberg with all the Rhyme $yndicate in full force. Although that shit is all over Ice T's latest album 'Gangsta Rap' is still dope and puts most current rappers to shame.

The first couple of tracks are by the man himself. A 'Power' remix off the B' Side of the 'High Rollers' 12". This is an incredible remix that is chopped up like a DJ Screw record (not slowed though). Hard to really explain in words, but dope. The other is a 'Drama' remix' with a completely different beat.

Off of an old 'Posse Records' compilation from about '87 is a track called 'Im Hot' by the group, 'The Rangers'. This is where Kid Jazz came from, his old shit before he almost had a solo career. From this same compilation is an old track from '86 called 'The Beach' that features Ice T, Melle Mel, Bronx Style Bob and Afrika Islam (the exact same line up from 'Cars' that's also on the compilation). The next track I don't actually own, It's from Afeks' vinyl of a King Tee 12" for 'Bass'. The album version of 'Act A Fool' has the 'Bass Remix' on it and the 12" B' side has the original version for some reason, but when you hear the normal version it sounds more like a remix so maybe Capital just fucked up on the text? Either way it's a sick track.

The final track is by a group called Rhyme Poetic Mafia, these guys came out in the mid 90's and were meant to drop an album, two twelves were released buy no album. DJ Ace from RPM did alot of production for Ice T on 'Return Of The Real' and later work including his latest 'Gangsta Rap' album. Rhyme Poetic Mafia did release an album a few months back but the name escapes me at the minute.

wow, yeah man those remixes are very rare, thank you...I find Ice-T to be more of a product than an MC these days and what is with his man wife?, Coco is so fake,plastic and disturbing...anyway...I was a big T fan back in the days and these are appreciated.

I have the Rhyme Syndicate Power Move Vol 2 CD which had Rhamel, Nile Kings and a few others on it, from memory it was a promo CD, do you know it man?, I was wondering what was on Volume 1...

Great Post

Rhyme Syndicate Power Move Vol 2??

Never heard of it man, but now you got me interested. The only comps I know of are the 'Comin Through', 'Posse Allstars' and the R$R one in the pic. Do you know what year it is?

As for Coco, I had the displeasure of seeing it first hand a couple of years ago in Melbourne, from Darlene the $yndicate Queen to a Silicone fiend.... things are tough for Ice these days.

His last album 'Gangsta Rap' and 'SMG' are dope though.

Diggin these tracks man...'The Beach' has a catchy synth...sounds a lil bit like somethin Afrika Bambaataa did...

Those 'Drama' n 'Power' cuts are dope...good to hear a different spin on some of my old favs

Another killer post..

The song "Bass" on the LP is the remix. The OG 12" for "Bass" wasn't even on Capitol. I can't find the record at the moment but if memory serves correct it was on one of Greg Mack of the Mack Attack's former labels. They put a remix on the lp because the single had been out for some time so they tried something a bit new for the LP, also they might have had a problem getting the original as it was on a different label.

Jaz said...

I know man Darlene was the Queen...You poor thing actually seeing that Coco thing...

I will dig out that CD and upload it for you this week.

I think the year was 1990, maybe 89.

Do you have The Future Sound-The Bop Step (remixes) please bullant?

Oh and I met Ice-T once, he was a short ass and very arrogant, even though myself and a friend had got over 3,000 sigs to get him to come into the country, because the Police didn't want him here in New Zealand because of the Body Count thing...

I was so disappointed that he clearly didn't care...so I gave away all of my Ice-T tapes and CD's but I kept that Power Moves Vol.2

Peace

I jus watched that A.C.A interview with Ice T....and realized then I'd seen it as a kid...I remember it coz of one word...he called the black chief of police a "TOM" (uncle tom sell out)...I went to that Cop Killer concert (there was a mini riot after the show)...the gig was held at the old Easter Show grounds in Sydney...

thanks for the flash back

@ The Letter D, I called Afeks up and the Bass 12" this was ripped from was a Capitol release. I hear what you're saying about it getting remixed on the lp because it came out later though. I wonder what versions are on that Greg Mack 12?

@ Jaz, That rip would be very appreciated.

@ Skitzo, How much would you wanna go back to those early 90's? Did you like Ice's goodbye nod he gave Jana?

travis said...

Great stuff, I was always into anything the Syndicate did back in the day. I was even in their "fan club"....yeah, bad, I know.

BULLANT said...

"anything"? jeas, I hope you didn't like Bronx Style Bob's album?

Did you get anything for being in the fan club?

SKITZO said...

that inteview was fukken hilarious man....Ice full on had a come back for every line...he's a mad smart ass when heats put on him.....

Goin back to those years would mean alot man...I still live it thru the music...sit there downing a long neck and reminisce...songs always have memories...

The version on the Greg Mack 12" is the origianl mix that is included on the Capitol issue of the 12" and it includes the instrumental. I have the 12" and have had it since '88. One of my single most played 12's ever.

BULLANT said...

The vids pretty dope too.
