What separates the amateurs from the professionals? Is it their persistence of honing their craft? Their dedication to becoming world class? Whatever it is, know that we all start on a blank slate and those who develop their talents day by day are the ones that usually succeed. Chopping up a Prodigy quotable from Mobb Deep’s “G.O.D Pt. III” with samples of Amadeus sandwiched in-between some hardbody verses, “Profreshionals” isn’t your everyday rap track. As DJ JS-1 lays the foundation for Ill Bill and Slaine, who comprise half of the underground supergroup, La Coka Nostra, the two speak on life, death and the undead, while JS-1 talks with his hands. If you’re new to these guys, know that they’ve been in the game long enough to have mastered the trade that has earned them the coveted song title, which is available for stream and free download.

Paul Nice-Don’t Understand (Masta Ace)-TRUE Inst. Straight From Paul’s MPC

Paul sais:

Okay. Went digging in the discs and found the original floppy for “Don’t Understand” which I was honored to produce for Masta Ace’s classic “Disposable Arts” album. It was also the lead single.
I consider this version the only true instrumental since the “instrumental” found on the 12″ single is actually more of a dub/tv track – with Ace’s vocals flying in the mix every other line as well as Greg Nice’s entire hook still present.
Also, I think if you’ll compare the two, this version – mixed completely dry and straight from the MPC60-II – punches a LOT harder. I’ll let you decide.
