Dug the Geto Boys LP out the other day, after reading the 331/3 book.
Pretty good read if you have an interest in early southern hip hop.

On another note, does anyone know how many Gangster of Love (Steve Miller sample) pressings were made before it got pulled?

^Sup Death Hop!

You'll find the Steve Miller sample is on the album, Grip It! On That Other Level on the first pressing of the tape and the CD only.

Yes mate, but a first run of this "remixed" version of that LP also has the Steve Miller sample (mine included luckily winking smiley).
But because they blew up on this one, it was highlighted to Steve Miller and was pulled from the shelves and replaced with a Lynyrd Skynyrd sample. Which in my opinion is much weaker (sorry if you already know all this).
I was just curious how many of the Geto Boys LPs were pressed with the OG sample.








The Grip It.. LP version is slightly different again.

^Interesting. I didn't know there were 3 versions of that song.

There's also this...

Ghetto Boys ‎– Gangsters Of Love in case you feel like spending 400 bucks. But I don't know what version is on that.
