Souls Of Mischief "Cab Fare" (Unreleased, 199x)


'Cab Fare' is "unreleased" gem from the mighty Souls of Mischief crew, comprised of A-Plus, Opio, Phesto, and Tajai. Tajai did an interview where he said the members were fifteen/sixteen when they recorded the track! Wow. It's obvious that the Bob James sample would never be cleared, but thanks to the internet (and the Archives Inc. vinyl release), fans have been celebrating this track for many years. Hip-Hop fans wouldn't be wrong to feel that the label support was underwhelming for the group's sophomore effort No Man's Land. As an extension, songs not reachin' the same level of mainstream acclaim as '93 til... will be the catch-22 of the group's success. Fortunately, Souls have toured extensively as solo artists and alongside the Hiero family, and have more than enough gems to celebrate! Whether you've never heard it or it's one of your favorite joints, revisit it below...
