Rapper Big Pooh - "The Recipe - Intro" (Prod. By Khrysis x Young RJ)
Suffice it to say, most music-making (esp. rap music) has a story behind it. But maaaan, this story takes a deep breath before & after to tell.
Back in 2008-2009 after the idea and talks of a Slum Village/Little Brother album faded amongst us...Young RJ and I started working on a project called The Recipe. While working on the project I became obsessed with finding the right joint to start the album off. Khrysis (he was engineering the recording for me in NC) plays this beat that I deemed, "the one." Even though it wasn't his production, I convinced Young RJ that this was what we needed to start our album off. He stripped the original version down and built it back up around the sample Khrysis used. I hit DJ Babu for the cuts and we were ready to rock. After The Recipe stalled while we were trying to get the business side straight, Slum Village started working on Villa Manifesto. I was asked about giving this track to Slum for their album but I refused, still planning on finishing and using it for The Recipe. Scrap Dirty made the OG call and gave it to Slum and it became Bare Witness, their intro track for Villa Manifesto. Here is my unmixed, unmastered, and unreleased version of The Recipe - Intro.

This is pretty much as 'raw uncut' as raw uncut Hip-Hop can get. Enjoy and appreciate this finally-released gold nugget! Also, just think for a minute about the Slum Village/Little Brother album that might've been. WHEW!
