Original Flavor - Can I get Open 7" (Limited Edition)
We've partnered up with the legendary Ski Beatz (Jay-Z, Camp-Lo, Curren$y) to bring you this classic 1993 single for the first time ever on 7" (including the instrumental on the B-Side). The track was produced by Ski aka Ski Beatz and features a young guy you might've heard of by the name of Jay-Z. True music heads worldwide know what time it is.
"After Jay made his less than stellar debut rolling with The Jaz on joints like "Hawaiian Sophie" he dug into the New York underground rap scene hard and could be heard dropping cameos on records like "Show and Prove" by Big Daddy Kane and "Da Graveyard" by Big L. Those rhymes came in 1994 and '95 though when Jay had slowed down a little vocally and was getting closer to perfecting the rap style that would make "Reasonable Doubt" a hip-hop classic. Before that speed was his need as Jay tried to set himself apart from a lackluster identity as Jaz-O's hypeman, and associating with Original Flavor gave him that opportunity in '93."
