RSD 2019. First issued in 1991. Vinyl has been out of print since the early 90s. 2000 only worldwide. Over the course of his 30 year career Ed O.G. has maintained an admirably strong following and worked with contemporaries like RZA, KRS-One, Masta Ace, Pete Rock, and Common - and toured the world a few times over. For Record Store 2019, Get On Down rolls it all back to where it started, Ed O.G. and Da Bulldogs 1991 debut ""Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto."" The album runs the gamut from the introspective conscious hip-hop of ""Be A Father To Your Child"", to the whimsical boasts of ""I'm Different"", to deeply political fare like the Ace & Quan and Def Jef- featuring ""Speak Upon It"", plastered across a backdrop of Joe Mansfield-produced sample-heavy soundscapes which snatched clips from deep cuts of James Brown, Roy Ayers, and The Delfonics, to name just a few. It also managed to generate Billboard-charting singles out of tracks like ""Bug-A-Boo"", ""Be A Father To Your Child"", and ""I Got To Have It"", which would become Ed O.G.'s signature track, and sample fodder for 2Pac, De La Soul, and DJ Premier. Get On Down now presents Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto, an unheralded rarity of renaissance hip-hop, reissued on vinyl for the first time since 1991. Trackls : A1. I'm Different A2. Speak Upon It (feat. Ace & Quan, & Def Jef) A3. Feel Like A Nut A4. I Got To Have It A5. She Said It Was Great A6. Dedicated To The Right Wingers B1.
