Says DJ RTC of RubyHornet:
When we were working on Dangerous 5.18E, Rhymefest told me about a variety of songs he had recorded with different themes. One song he spoke about was a story about falling in love with a Mermaid, who then traps him under water. I had a Ron Burgundy moment and actually thought it was a joke. He made sure that I knew he was serious, and tonight the storied “Mermaid” track hit my inbox. Let the underwater adventure begin. Download it below. If you haven’t picked up El Che yet, it is in stores now and available here.

In his sit-down with XXL last week, N.O.R.E. revealed that there was a Big Pun dedication song he had recorded almost a decade ago which was only played once on Hot 97 but never heard again. 57th Ave just liberated it and has the back story to go along with it as well:
UPDATE: TheTrafficker says that this record was on the net years ago.
Sounds like a leftover from The Stimulus Package.
Says Dice Music Group:
When we were putting together The IN Crowd mixtape, we knew we wanted to include one of the productions J. Cardim contributed to ODB’s posthumous album around 2005/2006. We ended up going with “All Of The Time” (track 11 on The IN Crowd) but we wanted to let the people hear the other one.
Our friend Dame Grease also produced an early version of this song and can be heard doing ad-libs on the chorus.
It’s a shame this music didn’t come out when it should have, R.I.P. to one of Hip-Hop’s greatest artists & characters.
Some vintage Curtis, pre-GRODT and possibly even pre-Power Of The Dollar, or from the same era. I detect hints of a Jay-Z-esque double time flow. Not that Jay was the first guy to do that, but that’s who Curt reminds me of on this. Clearly both of them made the right decision to trash that style.
FSD has liberated some pre-G.O.O.D. Music ‘Ye & co., circa late 90s:
Once upon a time there was a Chicago music conglomerate known as Kon-Man Productions, which was represented by Hustle, a marketing and promotions company run by Don Crowley, John “Monopoly” Johnson and Happy Lewis. At the top of the Kon-Man productions pyramid, was a up-and-coming rapper/producer by the name of Kanye West. Kanye had recruited some of Chicago’s top talent to join him on his road to riches and quest for stardom. Producers such as Boogz, Arrowstar and Brian “All Day” Miller helped him on the production side, while emcees such as GLC, Mikkey, Rhymefest, Timmy G, Miss Criss, Shayla G and Really Doe held down microphone duties.
Out of this conglomerate, a small “group” was formed which featured Kanye himself, GLC, Timmy G and Arrowstar – and this group was called the Go Getters. The Go Getters recorded a handful of songs, did some promo shoots and made radio appearances – but an official album was never released.
