North Bronx Alliance !!!

Mad test press only 12" release from a group called North Bronx Alliance outta the Bronx NYC !!!

This record was supposed to drop on a NYC independent label called Database Productions (the same label who put out the dope Rezidue 12"s) but sadly only the test pressings were made (don´t know exactly how many copies were pressed but there can´t be many) !!!

The 12" was pressed up in 1997, produced by Rob Dinero and is featuring 2 dope tracks titled "NBA Live '97" & "Black Caesar" (which are both very dope) !!!

North Bronx Alliance never put out a own record but are featured on the very dope North Bronx Alliance group member Aiello Wilson debut 12" titled "Black Soil" (which was released on Chase Dinero Records in the same year) !!!

I was able to talk with Aiello Wilson about the North Bronx Alliance and the music they made and he confirmed me that this test pressing right here was recorded and supposed to drop before "Black Soil" but got shelved because of Aiello Wilsons solo demos which got some bigger attention and some air play at Stretch & Bobbitos radio show !!!

Aiello was also pretty close to get his material out on Rawkus Records but sadly that deal never happened !!!

Anyway, this test pressing right here is an absolute jewel for any crates out there so you better keep your eyes open cause there may only will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to get your hands on a real Bronx raer like this !!!

Check out a sample of "Black Caesar":
