Fab 5: OGC & Heltah Skeltah


October 1995: "Blah" and "Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka" a double sided single from "The Fab 5" drops introducing Duck Down Records Artists: Heltah Skeltah and Originoo Gunn Clappaz. And what an introduction it was: 5 dreadlocked nappyheads from Bucktown on a mission to bring the hiphopcommunity hardhitting boombap productions with heavy basslines and dope flow and rhymes. This was some intense shit. Everyone was still hyped about Black Moon's Enta Da Stage, Smiff & Wessun's Da Shinin and was wondering what the newly signed artists would do. I think the rest is history. Although OGC dropped a marvelous first album Da Storm, Heltah Skeltah got more attention because of the unique combination of Ruck & Rock. But I'm way ahead now. Let's go back to the introduction... PLOOOOOOOOOOOOW

    Hey-
    Thanks Kenny for the dope sax instrumental on "Take It EZ."

    When you say instrumental tape, do you mean Common's "Take It EZ" maxi-single tape or another instrumental tape?

    Oh, isn't that vid of "Take It EZ" nice too. Classic!
