North Bronx Alliance & Aiello Wilson – The NY Kings EP (Vinyl) (2012) (FLAC + 320 kbps)
Ever heard of the MC Aiello Wilson and the group North Bronx Alliance? Nah, not many cats have. The only reason anyone has is due to the efforts of a few hardcore, OCD Hip Hop vinyl collectors and obsessional bloggers that have kept the music from these two extremely low-key 12″ pressings alive.
In 1997, Aiello Wilson along with producer DJ Rob Dinero pressed up 300 copies of a single entitled ‘Black Soil’ featuring N.B.A (rappers K-Black and Cypher) themselves and did the typical independent record label thing of going from store to store in NYC pushing their product on consignment. The artwork consisted of a hand-spray-painted cover and anyone who has a copy of this very rare record can confirm the whole project looks, feels, sounds and smells indie. As well as pressing a small number of promo cassette tapes for the singles ‘Black Soil’ and ‘Live 97/Black Caesar’, Rob and his group N.B.A. started up the process of dropping another record but the project only got as far as test pressing stage and only 5 maybe 10 (he can’t remember exactly) copies were made. In the last few years those records have been exchanging hands for many many dolla!
