Private Identity (Def Jam Blaster & Mr. 3-2) - Look At Me Now - 2017


7" - 2017 - On The Good Foot Music  



"The year was 1989 when Def Jam Blaster and MC 3-2 were recording songs under the group name "Private Identity". At that time, both Blaster and 3-2 were affiliated with Short Stop Records which was responsible for the "Scarface" release as well as Lil Troy. Def Jam Blaster & 3-2 are both on the cover of the 1989 Scarface ( Dj Akshen) 12 inch. Though nothing was ever released by the group in 1989, 3-2 went on to sign his deal with Rap-A-Lot records and become part of the Convicts with Big Mike in 1991, Blac Monks in 1994 and eventually becoming a solo artist under Rap-A-Lot label in 1996. He was also a member of the Screwed Up Click. We are proud to have been able to unearth this rare gem that may have otherwise never been heard by the masses."
