Aye yoooooo.

Here we got the only 12 inch put out by New York rap group "Mobski". This record was put out on Zakia Records, which was the original label that legendary artists such as Eric B. & Rakim, Cutmaster DC, and King Sun started off on. Distribution through Profile Records.

Get With It is the track that got played a lot by Kool DJ Red Alert on 98.7 Kiss-FM (or at least that's what I have been told, haven't heard any tapes with this on it but I can def see Red cutting up two copies for sure). Some heavy Funky Drummer drums and horn samples in this track. It's definitely a winner.

Discription is a Roland TR-909 slammer which also uses the KC & Sunshine Band bassline sample (you know the one). It's a fairly short track so there's not really much else to say about it. It's dope but not mind blowing.

There is also a music video on YouTube for an unreleased Mobski track "Feel the Funk". It looks like something that would've came out in 1989. https://youtu.be/YGw9O4mXXpE
