Various Artists Prince Paul: Hip-Hop Gold Dus
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Antidote
As producer extraordinaire Prince Paul inches closer to officially hanging up his MPC, it‘s only right that his latest release takes a moment to reflect upon his oft-underappreciated career in hip-hop. In doing so, Paul unearths several rare gems from the vaults that are guaranteed to get heads nodding. It‘s dumbfounding to think of how tracks like Justin Warfield‘s slick 1991 single "K Sera Sera" were so slept on or how numbers like LA Symphony‘s hilarious hard-luck anthem "Broken Now" never got released at all. Thanks to Paul and the good folks at Antidote, some of the best hip-hop records you‘ve never heard are now being given a second chance.
