I Be, I Be Representin’ The Misfitss


Mystidious Misfits: Upside Down/Word Is Bond(Digga Remix)
from Upside Down 12″ (1995, Sony 550Music)

Mystidious Misfits: I Be (Digga Remix)
from I Be 12″ (1995, Sony 550Music/Epic Street)

Rubberband, Messiah Peekaboo and Mushmouth Marquest made up this trio of Emcees who caused a buzz in the mid-nineties. They have an interesting story. All of them had a careers as dancers for artists such as EPMD, Technotronic, Salt N Pepa and Mariah Carey. The story goes that the “Loonie” aka Mariah Carey heard them rhyming during the video shoot for “Emotions” and asked if they had a demo. Before ya knew it, They were the signing to Sony as The Mystidious Misfitts. They had these 2 singles that were pretty solid and made the mixtape and radio rounds. They released their debut album “A Who Dat?” and before ya knew it, They fell off the face of the planet. Give me a shout if you have more info on them. Maybe dealing with Mariah was the cause of their demise. I mean, She was married to Tommy Mottola when he was Chairman of Sony. (scratches head)

    I just got myself a 12″ of ‘I Be’ its got the album & digga mix on it.

    But I’m after another mix that uses the same sample as ‘Whats Up Star’ by Suga from the Album soundtrack ‘The Show’. I’m really interested if anyone knows what this mix is.

    There was a remix done by Buckwild that appeared on there “A Who Dat?” LP that was never released. I managed to scoop a copy of this very very rare gem a few months back and can upload that mp3 or the entire album if someone wants to tell me where I can upload it.

    Here’s some information on the CD…
