The Legendary Villain !!!

This 12" right here is sadly unkown to most peeps out there, but as the name of the Artist "The Legendary Villain" already says, it´s a legendary release to the few heads who know about this one !!!

The Legendary Villain comes straight outta GAP Town New Jersey and is really killing it with this unbelivable dope 12" titled "Memoirs Of A Villain" !!!

This 12" was released in 1996 on the Creative Brothers Inc. record label which also was responsible for a few other dope and slept on Artists and records like:

Handz "The Cure" (1995)

S.A.L. "Stressin'" (1995)

The whole 12" is produced by The Creative Brothers and is featuring the titles "Memoirs Of A Villain" & "Hot Spots" !!!

Anyway, The Legendary Villain 12" is def. the one to get from the Creative Brothers Inc. label, so if you ever get the chance to cop it, you better grab it while you can !!!

Check out a sample of "Memoirs Of A Villain":

The last time he was on Ebay, it is left to 600 euros! It is clear that the song is good, but still ... 600 euros!

Creative Brothers have produced two other maxis:


But But I never heard the S.A.L. Could you post?

Yeah, i´ve got the first 3:

CBE 001 Handz 12"
CBE 002 S.A.L. 12"
CBE 003 The Legendary Villain 12"

which are the best in my opinion !!!
I´ll post the S.A.L. somewhere next month !!!

for "sadly unknown" 600 is much money

This one rarely shows up & the heads who know about this one are really looking for it (and we all know that ebay isn´t the best place to buy rare records) !!!
I post on a few message boards where a lot of record guys with a lot of knowledge posts and asked many of them about this record in the past and a lot of them never heard/heard about this record !!!

Dabrovska hat gesagt…

Yes, if a One Deep or a Sandinistas will easily sell 600 euros, that because Ewing Jr. brought in his mixtapes.

But how vinyl also disregarded as "The Legendary VIllains" sells too expensive? The limited number of pieces? I think this is a phenomenon of rumors.

Terence hat gesagt…

Seems like now a lotta people know about this joint. So all asking and rumors just raised the price

I think terence brought it pretty much on point !!!
It´s mostly about talking and rumors !!!

For example:

After i heard this track first i was looking hard for the 12" because i really like the track !!!
I asked a lot of people and some of them didn´t knew the 12" themself and heard the track from me and added this 12" to their own wants and started asking arround themself !!!
So all peeps were talking about this record and after i finally got it and posted a scan of it on VA, i got a response from someone who also heard about it, but never heard it and thought this 12" is just rumors !!!

I think this is a typical hype up situation which in most cases raise up the value of the record !!!

Another typical hype up situation is the one dabrovska mentioned !!!
If some tracks on underground mixtapes catch some attention and aren´t that easy to get the value of the record increase as well !!!

I think there are still many very dope & slept on releases out there which deserve some attention too (and of course i´ll keep posting some in the future), that´s why i started this blog !!!
To me it´s not important if a record fetched 600 or 10 bucks on an auction site lik ebay, it´s all about the music !!!
