Flashback to 1990 and UltraMagnetic MC’s are back in the Bronx after an incredible show at Brixton Academy in London, U.K. where they introduced there newest member Timothy “Tim Dog” Blair to the die hard cult European audience. Tim Dog’s mega buzz from his opening debut verse on Ultra’s “A Chorus Line” put him on the A&R radar from everyone from Def Jam’s Russell Simmons, Andre Harrell at Uptown to Chris Swartz at Ruff House.
Tim Dog’s hunger to prove he was more then just one verse landed him and “producer of the year” Ced-Gee and T.R. Love “The Ultra-lab technician” back in the Ultra-lab studio to record Tim’s demo. This demo not only secured the
“hardcore Master’s” record deal but it show cased the dynamic “Fuck Compton” which eventually gave the west coast a super kick in the ass and ignited the legendary east coast vs west coast hip hop war!!
This obscure demo also housed two very dope innovative tracks, “Suckers Never Play Me” and “It’s My Time”!! These two butters are the latest Black Pegasus’ Ultra 7 release, BP702. In classic golden era fashion the masters of the SP 1200 Ced-Gee and T.R. come with uptempo break beats topped with saucey groove chops and a pinch of hardcore cuts and scratches courtesy of DJ I-Roc and T.R. Love. “Suckers Never Play Me” a revved up fast song that borrows a quote from Chuck D. Of Public Enemy for the chorus, while Tim Dog spits braggadocio triple cadence metaphor letting wack MC’s know he can’t be fucked with! The flip side “It’s My Time” uses the park jam break “Assembly Line” by the Commodores finds Tim Dog slaying his lyrical competition as well dropping positive life lesson jewels!!
This 300 copy limited eddition, orange vinyl 7inch release is by far Black Pegasus best release to date!! The real Tim Dog and Ultramagnetic heads now have another classic to add to the crates! Tim Dog may be gone in the physical but his musical catalogue is immortal!!
