The powers of this thing we call MySpace. I ran into Frankie Cutlass recently on MySpace (Add Him) and got to chop it up with him for a bit. Its good to see him still doing his thing out in NYC. Original Party rockin’ joints like “Puerto Rico” made him an infamous icon all over the place. Before that, He was choppin’ up beats for a bunch of rappers. He laced Akineyle with”Fuck You for Free”, Fu-Schnickens “Sum Dum Munkey (Remix)” and even Tito Nieves “I Like It like That (Hip-Hop Mix)” which was played everywhere… Dude has some serious history, even joining Funkmaster Flex’s Flip Squad (God I miss the old Funk Flex). Speaking of Funk Flex, DJ Spinbad slaughtered Funk Flex on that diss track thats been floating around. haha!

Back to the post… I was diggin the other week and had this joint out of the crates. It’s been a while since I heard this. It took me back to Senior Year @ Hayward High, Lunchtime BBoy sessions in the gymnastics room with the boombox with beats. You got Frankie Cutlass on the production tip doing what he does best and he invites the 2 dope mic slingers of the time, Sadat X and Redman to do what they do best. The original mix is hella cool with Sadat X. The Remix has Redman on it… My favorites are the KD’s Party Mix, which gots the Method Man “Set It Off” loop at the intro, Old R&B sample over the track and the bongo’s over Redman’s verse. I also like the Latin House version. We used to play that at the house parties mixed with some old Armand Van Helden, CLS, Boriqua Bros and even freestyle from Angelina, Jocelyn Enriquez, Buffy and Lina Santiago. (Where’s my old freestyle/latin house heads at?). Anyways. Enjoy these joints. Imma dig for some more classic flavors from Frankie Cutlass. More classic flavas coming your way from the Broke BBoys family.
