(“Verses From the Abstract”)

Initially released on Bobbito’s shortly lived Fruitmeat label this record was so incredibly slept on when it was released I couldn’t find one place that has it for sale today – not Discogs, not ebay, not gemm – nobody has it.  Discogs didn’t even have a listing for it.

I did see a Discogs listing for the original original version of this song that was actually a record put out by L.A. based rapper Kombo featuring Miss Mojica, but the version featured here is a different mix than the one featured on the Kombo 12″, although both are produced by Geology.

The record looks like this
