Mistafide

Equidity Funk

Red hot re-ish tackle here as one the finest cuts from P&P offshoot Land Of Hits returns to the shelves. Mistafide's colossal old-school rap behemoth 'Equidity Funk' has been in the wantlists for years, so this 12" repress is totally too legit to quit.
Not much is known about the crew behind 'Mistafide', their government names are listed online but this is the only record they put out using this name. Suffice to say, this has no impact on the fury and style with which the MC's deliver their raps, backed with the studio nous of impresario Peter Brown. Across 12 minutes 'Equdity Funk' is a slamming Disco-rap monster, interpolating elements of the evergreen B-boy jam 'Theme From SWAT' it sounds like everyone just got into the studio and went for it. In the style of the times this is the real hip-hop flavour, a live band, some MC's and some death defying bars being dropped, proper old school. A truly rare recording, 'Equidity Funk' has been one of those records fans of the Disco-rap era have been fiending for for decades - often commanding prices over the $1000 mark you can now grab this slice of essential NYC street Funk.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Heavy hitting disco rap classic here from the mysterious Mistafide crew, who represent NYC in classic block party fashion. Disco-not-disco grooves, loose funk attitude and fly flows perfect for the Bboys out there.
