Reasons why I love YouTube: Young Bleed edition

It's 2016, do you know what that mean? It'll be a decade this summer since the video for Young Bleed's Put Your Stamp On It was first uploaded to YouTube in all its low bitrate splendour:

Young Bleed - Put Your Stamp On It
(From YouTube; 2006)


It took 5 years to get an unedited CDQ MP3 of Put Your Stamp On It, but 10 years on and there's still no dirty MP3 version of Bleed's other 2006 low bitrate YouTube minor-classic:

Big Mike & Six 2 ft. Young Bleed - Down Home
(From YouTube; 2006)


Alas, the Down Home video audio isn't good enough to rip, the MP3 which eventually turned up on that Lethal Entertainment compilation in 2011 was a clean edit, and the Big Mike & Six 2 album is still shelved indefinitely like its a Jerry Lewis Holocaust comedy.

Free the dirty Down Home MP3 already! That song's done more time than Shyne.

I'd use the Young Bleed postal service instead of UPS.

If it's any consolation, The Day The Clown Cried has a tentative 2025 release date per Jerry's agreement with the Library of Congress.

Deluxe Criterion release with commentary from Jerry is gonna be necessary.

Ah the days when a pack of Newports was $3.19 @1:10

Was there ever a reason that Big Mike and Six 2 album never came out?

Si Mane Price said...

No idea, Ben.

No way.

Where's that unreleased Knoc-Turn'al album at tho?

Fred said...

I passed on buying this Young Bleed album in small record store a couple months ago, maybe I should have ?

Preserved?

If so, yeah, it's worth it for the dirty CDQ of Stamp On It alone imo, but there's about 5 other jams on there. Personal favourites being Walk Like Uh Hustla and the single Holla At Uh Dog.
