Product Details
Peace world! As promised, I am proud to announce that the One Leg Up saga continues with another groundbreaking series! We had a lot of fun with the "Heavy Pieces" series and releasing an unprecedented 6 releases in less then a year gave us great satisfaction. Still, now it is time to redefine things a bit and get into our 2009 movement; the "Crispy Nuggets" series!

First up, we thought we would give everyone what they REALLY want: Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth unreleased joints!!

OLU Records has connected with C.L. Smooth to finally unearth some of the legendary sessions that were not included on the seminal "All Souled Out" EP. While these sessions always seemed to be a bit of an urban legend, a few of them had actually leaked on WBLS "In Control" back in the day. Once the debut EP was released, the duo quickly went on to change hip-hop history and these early tracks were all but forgotten! Fast forward to 2009.....Thought lost forever, 4XL has done the unexpected in working with C.L. to unearth these vintage treasures. Mastered and restored to optimum quality, this is a hip-hop goldmine, and this 5 track EP is a testament to the late 80's sound merging into the early 90's one. Of course, Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth were two of the main architects of this sharp turn in the golden era....Songs like the one-time WBLS exclusive "The Midnight Wrecka" and the fast-rap "Go C.L." sport an aggressive 1989/1990 feel that was probably scrapped in favor of updated material like "The Creator" or "The Good Life". Still the laid back "Cool and Calm" and "Down To Wreck Ya Body" head in the direction of the vintage "All Souled Out" flavor. Last, we are treated to a somewhat alternate version of "Go With The Flow". All the cuts are heavy on the scratching, courtesy of Pete Rock and it is lovely indeed! This is vintage Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth goodness and an essential to any Hip-Hop collection! This one won't last for too long so start your "Crispy Nuggets" series collections promptly and accurately; we have much more in store! We've also switched over to a new vinyl pressing plant so expect the wax to be super...

Remember, just like our previous series, this is the 1st release out of 5 total limited releases we are putting out in this set. As usual, we will be releasing the unexpected throughout our new "Crispy Nuggets" series and of course at the end of the new series, upon release of the final title, we will again be announcing and giving away another FREE bonus record (OLU-LTD2)! This extremely rare and exclusive bonus record will ONLY be available to purchasers of all five of our releases in this new series. It will be of the same caliber and quality as any regular OLU release (and will be just as crazy as OLU-LTD1)! This is my way of showing love back to those of you who spend hard-earned money to support projects such as these that would otherwise be impossible to release. In order to qualify for the free bonus wax, it will require purchasing OLU-006, OLU-007, OLU-008, OLU-009 and OLU-010. Same rules as last time. I want to thank everyone in advance for partaking in our next journey; we WILL improve your vinyl collections!

Thanks for your continued support.

Best regards,

-Haj "4XL"
