Bee Why "The Lost Tapes" / "G.A.T.S." (12", 1998)

Let's go back to 1998 for this one; a nice 12" by Bee Why called "G.A.T.S." with "Crazy Queens" on the B-Side. Bee Why or Byron Stacey was an MC out of Queens, he had a few 12" releases on a label called Wolfpak; 2 of which dropped before "G.A.T.S": "Reality" and "The Boros." The production was handled by a DJ/Producer then known as Gee The Nutty Professor aka Ayatollah, who later produced the classic "Miss Fat Booty" for Mos Def, and Styles P & Pharoahe Monch's "The Life," among others. It took until 2013 but the Wolfpak label finally released cassettes and CDs for a project called "The Lost Tapes." The project features over a dozen rare and unreleased recordings - all remastered and produced by Ayatollah. Click HERE to check out "The Lost Tapes," for sure!
