J.M.S. Joint of The Week: 499 - "Don't Categorize Me" (1995)

Oh man I let this series slip didn't I?...yeah well Parenthood (our adorable little one turns 2 next February and she loves her beats and music, just like her Dad haha) and this confusing, intriguing, amazing, overwhelming, heartbreaking, puzzling and muddling thing we know as Life can take over so without further ado...





















This week's joint of the week comes from a short lived South London duo known as 499 which consisted of DJ Pelt and MC Merit, "Don't Categorize Me" could have easily been produced by an NYC producer as it is rife with jazzy horns, familiar breaks, a great Big Daddy Kane vocal cut and smooth and  rumbling bass but it was produced by DJ Pelt who definitely could have a much longer run, my guess is that this record didn't sell very well for Profile UK so they got dropped and got dismayed by the whole industry...and really who could blame them?

I suggest that you go back and check the Still Waitin LP, it's pretty dope and yet another reminder of how fortunate we really were in the 90's.

Until the next one.

Peace
