Sleestack'z - Ruination / Crystal Clear
Pressed up by Ichiban Records in 1996, this is an incredibly overlooked 12" right here. This is the seldom seen orange label pressing with the sticker. You get two tracks with two different mixes and producers for each one. These joints are ridiculous! Roy Ayers is all over this, as well as Lalo Schifrin. Spearhead X and Straight Roots handle the production. Spearhead X is still holding it down in Atlanta. He has worked/produced for De La Soul, Y'all So Stupid, Mass Influence, Erick Sermon, Too Short, and Illegal. Straight Roots is also still producing and writing, but goes by the name of Nomadic. He's produced lately for Prodigy, Pitbull, Dipset, and Franchize. Now, what's up with the mc's? Drop some info. Also, you can still get this for fairly cheap when compared to other "indy/random" joints, so don't hesitate adding it to your crates. Or simply ask me for a spare copy.
