this jawn was a crate STAPLE for years (thanx M3!!)

if you were a DJ rocking at any credible venues in the city of Atlanta (or beyond) where authentic hiphop was being spun between the years of '93 and '99, then this joint should be or should have been a staple in your crate.

if you were clever and REALLY knew your shit, then with double copies of it you could cleverly flip both sides (the Before Midnight mix and the After Midnight mix) and keep niggas flippin' their wigs for a good while.

i credit M3 for being the FIRST person i ever heard play this joint back in the day while doing a Sunday night set on 88.5's "Rhythm & Vibes". he KILLED it...

i came across doubles of it a few days later and the rest is party break history. M3 successfully kicked open the door on the "party break" spinning craze here in the A, i kicked that muthafucka DOWN!!!

the Before Midnight mix is what i'm giving you here, you'll have to find the After Midnight mix and the bonus beats on your own shawty...

thank me later...

La Di Da Di: for all you mp3J's out there who don't know any better (thank me later, lol)...

yeah i call u mp3J's because u download a buncha classic hiphop shit off the net without actually LISTENING to it before attempting to play out somewhere.

nothing wrong with downloading (shit i do it myself from time to time, i'm not CRAZY) but c'mon people, get your LISTENING skills back up. i can't (and won't) respect you as a DJ (females too, y'all aren't exempt from criticism) if u don't even know the songs that you play.

I'm ranting because i had the misfortune of going out a few nights ago and hearing a muhfucka play "La Di Da Di" without him even noticing that parts of that song that help make it the TIMELESS CLASSIC that it'll always be were edited out. the crowd even looked at him like "nigga what the fuck???"

so i've decided to do you guys a favor and uh, help you out per se.

now take a listen to that, and then compare it to your mp3. see what's missing in your version???

i didn't bother cleaning the record beforehand, i intentionally left all the crackle and pop in there for the authenticity cause some of y'all don't know what that's like, lol...

and yeah, (to be totally "High Fidelity" retentive) that pic is MY copy of the record and i'm proud to say that i've had that joint for 23 years. i remember exactly where i bought it from and all that (Record Bar in the fall of '85). call me an "old head" all u want, but i know my music.

again, thank me later...

and to again put y'all up on game, "High Fidelity", the movie starring John Cusack and Jack Black about the owner of a record shop with snobbish record store clerks is a MUST SEE.

trust me....
