Side A: Nick Bike – I Got to Have It (New Bag Mix)
Back in 1991, Boston emcee Ed O.G. his posse (Da Bulldogs) turned Beantown upside down with their hip hop classic, I Got to Have It. Fast forward to 2022, and producer Nick Bike not only remixes the famous track, but virtually reincarnates it with a pounding boom bap extravaganza complete with funky-azz horns that provide the new foundation for Ed O.G.’s vocals to take flight. True heads, rejoice. This remix is boot stompin’ baggy jeans music for the skinny jeans era.
Side B: Tachichi & Nick Bike – Put A Vowel On It
A … E … A, E, I, O, U (and sometimes Y). Ask any writer, and they’ll tell you that songs about vowels never seem to get the love they deserve, but Tachichi and producer Nick Bike pull out all the stops with this modern boom bap classic. Nick’s beats pound over a dope horn riff that will take you back to 1991 as Tachichi flows like a bottle of St. Ides and drops vowels like B-19s drop bombs. Be sure to bust out your neck brace before listening. This joint will nod your head off.
