Sean Price & Small Professor - Latoya Jackson b/w Remix [7''] (limited to 1000, indie exclusive)
Just in time for Record Store Day 2020, Coalmine Records and Duck Down Music are happy to announce the 7-inch 45 release of ''Latoya Jackson,'' the commanding, gritty posse cut first appearing on Sean Price & Small Professor's LP, '86 Witness.' The A-side is to host the original version which features Quelle Chris with cuts from DJ Revolution, while the flip side is to feature the ''Back to the Old School Remix,'' with a gracious guest verse from the luminary lyricist Masta Ace. Adding to the record's allure for bonafide collectors and Hip-Hop fans alike, the artwork has been handled by Atlanta-based heavyweight FRKO (Action Bronson, Gucci Mane), who expertly reimagined the cover of Just-Ice's classic Back to the Old School (Fresh Records, 1986). With an aptitude for details, FRKO's vibrant visual take superimposes Masta Ace into the scene, drawing from the rap veteran's cover artwork for his 2004 album, 'A Long Hot Summer.' The parallel merger of classic iconography and refined cultural references accents the 7'' release with exemplary execution, giving new legs to a track that further personifies the coveted energy of its initial release as an exclusive Record Store Day/Black Friday drop, all while paying homage to the late legend Sean Price. This collector's edition 7-Inch of ''Latoya Jackson'' will be pressed on a striking bubble gum pink vinyl, and can be purchased exclusively through participating Record Store Day outlets on Saturday, April 18, while supplies last.
