Rare find: Big Magnetic on Renegade Records, Brooklyn NY

Artist: Big Magnetic
Title: Different Strokes / Who Got Da Flow
Label: Renegade Records, Brooklyn, New York
Year: 1994


This record is straight fire. Absolutely, positively, certified dope hip hop. When I first dropped the needle on it, I honestly could not believe my ears. The A-side:

Big Magnetic - Different Strokes


My personal favorite is the B-side track "Who Got Da Flow".


Nothing else to show you - the rest must be heard. Maybe someday we'll drop the whole song for you, but for now, just a clip:





Despite how dope this record is, I can't afford to keep it. Besides, I run a record store, not a record museum. I have it up for auction right now. No, I am not kidding. This is probably the best record we have ever found.

UPDATE: This record has sold. Congratulations to a very lucky buyer from Japan.

  1. Changes happen in our life. Some of them may be drastic and life-changing. Others may be slow and silent. We may not even realize about it until the change is completed. However, we can hope that everything is for good. After all, life keeps on going. No one knows the exact answer of the question, “What is the purpose of life?”. Some may say about achieving the dreams etc. But at last, everyone comes to same destination. So the ultimate goal of everyone is same. But the way in which we live our life differs. Everyone has the freedom to decide how their life should be? But it depends upon fate what the life may unfold in front of you. In every situation we should try to keep ourselves happy. There may be sorrows and problems that come to our life. But we should get drowned by these problems. We should fight them with our full strength and courage. Success is for those who are capable to swim against the flow. One thing that is very important is to keep ourselves happy and satisfied. At the last we should not regret about wasting our life without finding happiness. This post tells about the truth of life. If we deeply think about the topics shared here, we can find all of them are true. In life we can see a lot of success and failures. But we should not allow our success or failures to get over us. We should not get affected by success and failures. We can be happy for our win. But we should develop pride in it. Good persons learn from their failures. They analyze themselves after failures and would repeat the mistakes that have lead them to fail miserably. Anyways, this post on Big Magnetic record was a helpful one.
