    You should look for it, then. Totally different feel. I'm sure there are plenty of copies floating around that you could dig up with Acquisition or whatever you people use.

    And the second batch for today:
    "Provider (Zero 7 remix)" -N.E.R.D. Not exactly a random start, this one was inspired by TS's listing of the original song
    "Steppin' In a Slide Zone" - The Moody Blues
    "Falsche Entscheidung" - Fettes Brot
    "Angie (live Rolling Stones cvr)" -Tori Amos
    "Traveling Riverside Blues" - Led Zeppelin
    "Underwater" - Death Cab for Cutie
    "Chin High" - Roots Manuva
    "Drowned" - The Who
    "Times of Trouble" - Temple of the Dog
    "Cherry Tree" - 10,000 Maniacs

    So your responsible that record he sold.[​IMG]


    12: Slick Rick - The Moment I Feared

    Rick would only say something like this.

    "This was the rise and fall of my fast lane style
    And I was the main event on the TV for a while
    but now I'm in jail doin life and I'm scared
    Some kids snuffed me cold and greased me where no one dared

    This was the moment I feared...
    "Turn around nigga (HAHAHAHA)
    Spread your cheeks"
    This was the moment I feared...
    "UHH, AOWWHWHWAA! STOP STOP! AHAOWWHAHAOOHO"

    Actually, I downloaded it off the ORIGINAL Napster in 2000, and it was on some comp that had a bunch of Kurupt on it (which was what I was d/l it for) That being said, its a really good track. And The Moment I Feared Is like my favorite Slick Rick song. If you are gonna post the end, you gotta let the peeps know how he got there! Well I'm sittin on my lunch break, grinnin my teeth (my teeth) It's the last day of the week, boy what a relief (relief) My muscles kind of ache, they felt rigid and stuff so I looked around, and I smoked this big fat spliff Now I'm happy as can be I'm in this pothead spell I put some Visine in my eyes so that no one can tell It's 12:55 almost time for the bell Put the breathmints in the mouth so that the mouth don't smell Now back on the job, I don't bother no one I keep strictly to myself and all my work gets done Now the job's finally over it's time to have fun and I'm hangin out with Trevor there's a kid named John Got real drunker than a skunk and happy as can be We went, to the Latin Quarters and we got in free Scoopin all the girls like nuttin with my trunk jewelry cause I'ma fly brown brother and you can't school me Boogie Down was performin hey they ain't no joke And a bunch of Brooklyn kids was lookin all down my throat Was it my big chains with the big plates on em? Then they rolled on me and told me to run em This was the moment I feared... "Hey yo homeboy take off your chains man Bout to hurt you real fuckin bad, I'm gonna fuck you up" This was the moment I feared... "Yo what's the matter stupid? Take the shits off man! The fuck is up?" I said, "They're really not real, they're just a front for the girls" Then a whole bunch of fists just, caved my world I was in pain, so ashamed, I wish I had not came Had to kindly pick up my face and then ride home on the train, then I went to an open store that's where I brought/bought me a quart Then I went to the park, and I sat and I thought I seen Danny Boy though he's with his girl named Sarah in one of his cars, I think this one's a Bravera She calls out to me, but, I really couldn't hear her So I went just a little bit closer so I'd hear a little clearer She said, "I need Veronica Blades that's right near Tilden" I said, "I know where that's at cause that's right next to my building" I gave em the information and they went on their way I went home, and there I slept til almost three the next day Then someone knocked on my door, I opened up, no quit! It was Sarah with some magazines and a bag named Kit She tried to use me and seduce me and at first I wasn't with it Then we did it and we did it and we did it and WE DID IT She said it was great, she said she's glad we had done it The elevator came and Danny Boy was on it This was the moment I feared... "Hey yo what the fuck's goin on here? What you doin to my girl homeboy?" This was the moment I feared... "Oh I just KNOW y'all didn't just finish fuckin" Well he was huffin and puffin and he swung at me -- word So I pulled out my jammy and I silenced the nerd Then he was dead two in the head I took the cash and the Visa's She said, "Don't worry about a thing just make sure nobody sees us" We went back to her apartment, there was blow in the freezers She said, "We're rich we're rich we can have whatever will please us" Now I don't hang with no one who ain't good for my health So I put the sugarhead out and I went for myself Now I was rich as I was rich I could have whatever would please me Now I could wear real gold in front of folks that would tease me Yah me, I'll be a new neighborhood dad Cats'll roll up on me screamin, "Yo Rick my man!!" I guess I was too fly word up I'm sorry to say Ya see a cop rolled up on me and told me, "Make my day" I said, "Relax brother", but he had proof that I had done it Yah they had false hair on underwear with my fingerprints all on it This was the rise and fall of my fast lane style And I was the main event on the TV for a while but now I'm in jail doin life and I'm scared Some kids snuffed me cold and greased me where no one dared This was the moment I feared... "Turn around nigga (HAHAHAHA) Spread your cheeks" This was the moment I feared... "UHH, AOWWHWHWAA! STOP STOP! AHAOWWHAHAOOHO"
