Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
Rap concept created by Soul Strut regular, crate digging guru, and cult golden era rap artist/producer Phill Most / Soulman. Soulman made good use of his 4 track's pitch control to create the hedonistic alter-egos, the low-voiced Baritone The Microphone Champ and the high voiced Tiplove MC Supreme in the eraly 90s. It's a concept that would be later adopted by artists like Madlib for Quasimoto. The project was anchored by his brilliant heavily layered samples inspired by Public Enemy's production team The Bomb Squad. Initially created as a joke, the demo tape drummed up serious interest from major labels one of which was Easy Street Records. Easy Street delayed the official release of the album and , by that time, the rap landscape had drastically changed. The album and concept died as a limited cassette only release and an official 12" for the single "Young Ladees Drive Me Crazee!" By the mid 00s, golden era rap aficionados began to unearth and tout this release prompting a Japan bootleg in 2007 and cries for an official reissue.
