Friday Funk: Time's Up



-Lack of vitamin C can lead to a disease called scurvy, which can cause splochy skin and spongy gums. The disease was common among pirates in the 16th and 17th century.
-The producer of the track was Buckwild, whose heyday was the mid-90's scene. He produced other DITC artists, as well as Commish favorite "Stress" by Organized Confusion. His most recognizable beat may be Black Rob's "Whoa!"
-Mos Def samples the tack on "Hip Hop" from his album Black on Both Sides.
-Plexiglass is a thermoplastic and transparent plastic. However, its aura is undefined by many shamans and witch doctors.
-The hook ("their time's limited, hard rocks too") is sampled from Slick Rick's "Hey Young Word"
-The line "Rappers are in danger" was also used a few short months later on KRS-One's "Rappaz R N Danger"
-A young Commish worked on delivery truck in the Spring of 95 with a fiend named Big Guy and we listened to a mix that featured this track. The line "What's-her-face told me you shot this kid last week in the park,that's a lie, you was in church with your moms" was particularly amusing to Big Guy, as he stumbled to spit it out for about two months.
-OC first appeared on Organized Confusion's "Fudge Pudge" in 1991.
-The track samples Les DeMerle's 1968 "A Day in the Life."
-DeMerle was a Brooklyn norn jazz musician and bandleader who worked with jazz greats Chick Corea, Al Jarreau, Freddie Hubbard, and the Manhatten Transfer.
-In the movie 8 Mile, Eminem's character B Rabbit freestyles over the insrumental when he battles the late Proof's character Lil' Tic.
-Proof's illest line: Rip the Rabbit's head, toss it to Hugh Hefner, cause I don't play, boy, now tell my who's fresher.
-The song is alleged to take over a year for OC to write.
-The album was released in October 1994 on the iconic label Wild Pitch, and it charted at #34 on the R&B rankings.
-Cracking someone's head with a 4 X 4 would most likley require a two handed grip or a carpenter or lumber store employee assistance.
-The Source ranked the track as the 14th best beat ever concocted.
-DITC sampes the line "fuck who did I offend" on the track "Enemy" from 2000's compilation album.
-Niacin is also known as B3, and a lack of it can lead to Pellagra. Symptons include dementia, aggression, weakness, and diarrhea. Or a typical morning after in the Slushy Gutter realm.
