1 Life 1 Love to Donal & Ray Garraty, 1 Post for Concentration Camp stans

Here's a less distorted/unedited MP3 of I Like It than the one included on friday's Latino-rap comilation. Needless to say, this song was a no-brainer for inclusion on my part: a Happy Perez-produced Concentration Camp deep cut that's equal parts 24 Hours To Live and I Really Like It. All Music.com tells me that there was a video for the song which got a smattering on play on BET and The Box back in 2000, and that it originally appeared on Boo's A Hustla's Prayer CD a year before it was included on the 1 Life 1 Love Hustle Hard compilation. Who knew?

Boo Da Boss Playa ft. Young Bleed & King Goldi - I Like 2
(From A Hustla's Prayer album; 2000)



There isn't a sniff of the I Like 2 video anywhere online, the A Hustla's Prayer CD goes for upwards of £40 on Amazon, and the only place you can find a rip of the album is on t'internet is on some sketchy site you've gotta pay $50 to join. Maybe the album is some lost regional classic that's worth every penny, though, because the only other track from it on YouTube is Rainbow, which ANU once claimed was the best song I've ever put him onto. What's preventing me from pulling the trigger on a copy of the CD is that it might be the clean version like that damned rip of Hustle Hard on the Land Of G-Funk website.

I only know Boo from "Strip Club". Didn't know he was that deep.

Yeah, his shit goes way back to 1996.

PS: this post is a thinly veiled plea for someone to find A Hustla's Prayer deep in the bowels of some Russian P2P type shit.

Our shit is full of wonders. I'm on it, give it some time. (Don't tell me you thought I was Irish.)

Si Mane Price said...

Hah, no I noticed you from where computer's really do be Putin.

If you can find A Hustla's Prayer you'll be the comment section M.V.P of 2015.

I've only heard Boo's first album in it's entirety, how's his other solos?

Si Mane Price said...

907 is the only one I've heard in full. It's patchy but with a handful of really great tracks.

He Say She Say off that Hustle Hard shit is so good aswell

Si Mane Price said...

Hook me up with the MP3 of that one plz.

We need to find the unedited version of that album too. The damn CD is $49!

d said...

good grief. cant catch a break lately too cos Amazon wont sell mp3s here for some reason and youve to covert songs you buy on itunes, I just wanna support the lads

Thats the mad thing though, the rest of the album is unedited. You want the whole thing? Theres a few keepers on it

Si Mane Price said...

Oh shit, yes please.

I guess I Like 2 was edited on there because it had a video, and Concentration Camp always had clean versions of their radio/video jams on their albums after they stopped releasing physical singles back in '98. S/0 to C-Loc's cost-cutting business strategy.

Kicking you outta the team for fucking with iTunes, though, m8.

d said...

Here theyve me backed in, Im just tryna get listenable quality old 3 6 for me cardio.

Yeah Big Boy Records did the same radio version on the end system, love that so long as they include the proper one. Gangsta Blacs Can It Be was the same story.

Where U From is a jawnt aswell
