I've only just cottoned-on to this thanks to the brilliant blog, Olans Un Bekons recently.
Apparently there was an album that surfaced in 2007 which purportedly contained tracks that had been laying dormant in "an abandoned storage locker in New Jersey" since 1988 having been originally recorded at a studio named Top Shelf. The tracks were from big, big artists such as MC Lyte, Jungle Brothers, Biz Markie, Bid Daddy Kane and a slew of others.
To add more mystery and thus collectability the album was then released ONLY in Japan.
Sounds mad, right? I mean, undiscovered songs from artists of this calibre doesn't happen very often, does it? If ever?
And so the old adage goes if something sounds too good to be true....
I'll leave it up to you to make your own conclusions but if you need some help then check this link which may explain.
Meanwhile get over to OuB and grab the album as it is chock-full of diggy-dope stuff that just pisses all over anything around at the moment.
Big shout to WARLORD.
