DJ CRAZE : watch DJ Craze as he murders it #realdjing






 photo mikeyd_zps0bb8b42f.jpg

Artist: Mikey D and the LA Posse
Title: Bust A Rhyme Mike/My Telephone/Dawn - 12"
Label: Public Records - 1987
Producer: Paul C and Mikey D

Before his contributions to SuperLover C and Ultramagnetic, the late great Paul C lent his production talent to the likes of Mikey D (former Main Source M.C.) for a solid 3-song single. The A-side, "Bust A Rhyme Mike," was pretty typical fare, but the B-side had much more to offer. "My Telephone" was a slammin' mid tempo cut with lyrics and music that owe a lot to the early Fresh Prince stuff. DJ Johnny Quest added some above average scratching of the ubiquitous "Late Night" break, making for an entertaining and somewhat amusing track. The final song, "Dawn," was another entry into the "beatbox+nasty lyrics" genre inspired by Slick Rick and Just Ice.
