Agallah the Harold Bishop

Another freezing cold sunday afternoon, another Agallah The Don Bishop pun that'll confuse 80% of the people who read this site, and another great old Agallah deep cut from Da Mixtape Iz The Album I've only just discovered recently. Hear why Agallah is the type of bloke who probably lists himself as a Hopeless Romantic on his profile here:

"Don't act all fly if I ax' you out
'Cause you and I both know Ima mash you out!"

Agallah - Let's Get High
(From Da Mixtape Iz The Album mixtape; 2001)

Don't be mislead by the title because Let's Get High isn't another entry into the Agallah weed song canon alongside the likes of Fly High and Trees For Xmas. As hinted at above it's actually an adorable little ditty in the vein of Neighborhood Hoe about "the bitches and whores, my type of shit y'all" over what sounds the closing score from some swashbuckling 1930s Clark Gable movie for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. No, seriously, I'm not just blowin' hyperbole outta my arsehole here, I swear that sample really does come from some Clark Gable flick I've half-watched on a freezing cold sunday afternoon much like today.

Not really that good of a 'tape other than Let's Get High, N.Y.C and songs everybody knows like Crookie Monster and Telemundo with Sean Price which Duck Down released as the 2nd Sean P solo 12".

If it helps you ID the sample, it was previously flipped by Count Bass D for "Kumbuka Watu Penda Pesa, Pt. 1" hth?
