Prince Paul Announces "The Policy Of The Company" To Renew With The Loss Of The Soul
#DXCLUSIVE: "of all the records that I've made, this is the only one where I'm like, 'Yes it could have been better,'" Paul explains.
New York, NY – it's not every day a Hip Hop luminary DJ Prince Paul, known for his work in The Soul's seminal album 3 Feet. The high and Growing — you choose to redo an entire album. But that is exactly what the experienced producer did.
The Friday (13 October), the Prince Paul plans to deliver its latest creation, The Redux, a 2003 review of the Policy of the Company. At that time, the O. G. version served as the follow-up to 1999's critically acclaimed, A Prince of Thieves, but because Tommy Boy Records sat on the album for a year before finally releasing it, turned out to be a point of frustration for the Long Island native.
"I've made the original version, a kind of out of spite and anger, and was very sarcastic," Prince Paul says to HipHopDX. "I think that the humor and the idea is lost in the translation, so that when it came out, people took it literal. It's funny, of all the records that I've made, this is the only one where I'm like, 'Yes, it could have been better.' I made this as a joke. I wanted to redeem myself. I don't want my legacy to be stuck like that."
In anticipation of the occasion, Prince Paul has shared a lost just with The Soul, entitled "I don't care", as well as the revamped version of "People Places And Things (No, I don't)", with the DOOM, the last of which was released late last month.
The Resurgence of the features of many of the star players of the original cover, including Ice-T, Jean Grae, the Guru of the evening, Planet Asia, Biz Markie, DOOM, EPMD's Erick Sermon and Chubb Rock.
It will be available as a free download.
