    Latee - The Original Flavor Unit MC

    Latee is one of those rappers with a limited, but impressive back catalogue of certified classic hip-hop tunes, starting with his early 12"s on Wild Pitch - 'This Cut's Got Flavor'/'Puttin' On The Hits' (1987) and 'No Tricks'/'Wake Up' (1988), produced by the legendary Mark The 45 King.

    The '80s and early '90s saw Latee limited by his contract with Wild Pitch which subdued his rapping career, but didn't stop his passion for hip-hop culture. Around 1992, Latee recorded a selection of demos intended for his debut album on Flavor Unit (through a distribution deal with Epic). Only one of these tracks saw the light of day: 'Let Yourself Go', which ended up on the 'Flava Unit' compilation. Latee acted as A&R for Latifah's Flavor Unit and remained heavily involved behind the scenes during this period.

    Latee remained close to his Flavor Unit family and made a rare appearance on Apache's (R.I.P.) album track 'Woodchuck'. One of the 1992 demo tracks was 'Brainstorm': Latee re-recorded this for a 45 King EP released around 1993 (now considered a classic following its inclusion on mixes such as DJ Ivory's 'Hear No Evil'). Another notable mix included the remix of 'No Tricks', featured on DJ Shadow's '4-Track Era Remixes' CD. Look this one up if you haven't heard it before...

    The most recently-recorded track by Latee was 'Lati Rocks The Bells', released with 45 King on the Blazin' label in the early 2000s. With the slow-paced tempo and xylophone/vibes, in many ways this sounded like 'Brainstorm - Part 2'.

    Thanks to all our supporters, and Scott, Janae, Naiquan and Latee for making this release happen!

    Just to be clear:
