Lord Aaqil !!!
Alright, time for one of my favourite slept on Hip Hop 12"s of the early 90s by a guy outta Philly who goes by the name of Lord Aaqil !!!
This 12" right here titled "Check It Out" is easily one of the best independent Hip Hop 12"s that got put out in 93 and i would have absolutely no problem with naming it with 12"s like Sons Of Sam "Oooh He Got An Afro" & Massive Ring "Middle East" in one breath !!!
In fact, if this material would have been released on a major label back then it would be in line with all the big hitters like Main Source, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth or Showbiz & A.G., Diamond D etc. !!!
The 12" contains 5 tracks in total titled "Check It Out", "Kick It Like Dis", "Kid, What´s Ya Name", "Kick It Like Dis RMX" & "Kamillah Story" !!!
All of the tracks are dope, but "Kid, What´s Ya Name" & "Kick It Like Dis" are the stand out tracks !!!
Not an easy 12" to find and always seem to fetch a big amount of money on auctions but trust me, it´s worth it !!!
Check out a sample of "Kid, What´s Ya Name":
