Slice Of Spice is proud to present Overworked & Underpaid, the debut album from First Division, in conjunction with Spaghetti Bender Music and Soulspazm. This killer debut album is Boom Bap hip hop to the core featuring beats by Marco Polo (Executive Producer), DJ Premier, Kev Brown, Jake One, The Doppelgangaz, BeatWyze and guest appearances from Prince Po, Rah Digga, Torae, Hannibal Stax and more.
Since it’s release on CD & Digital back in 2009, Ghettosocks’ album, Treat Of The Day, has been waiting for a vinyl release. Finally, Ghettosocks and his DSP crew have teamed up with Slice Of Spice to drop this as a licorice platter. Featuring artists such as El Da Sensei and Pumpkin Head (R.I.P.) and production by Jorun Bombay, Fresh Kils, and Bix, this limited edition vinyl needs to be gobbled up before it’s gone.

Brooklyn Flower is a privately commissioned project in conjunction with Slice-of-Spice Records, and ReDef Records. The title track is a reworking of the Ramsey Lewis and Minnie Ripperton versions of the Charles Stepney classic, Les Fleurs. The intention of this track and project is a dedication for the birth of my daughter. These samples, and others deemed relevant, were referenced to Damu The Fudgemunk, when the project was first commissioned in late 2009, and as expected he produced something quite extraordinary and sublime. This is not a track he created for himself, or intended for commercial release. The record has a full color cover, illustrated by legendary De La Soul artist, Joe Buck. It is pressed on white vinyl (so the A-Side looks like a flower, and B-Side looks like the Obama campaign logo) and has individual gold stamp numbering up to 500.
The long out of print and hip hop classic, Port Authority, has finally been re-issued and then some. Slice Of Spice have once again put together a high quality vinyl release in collaboration with Marco Polo and Spaghetti Bender Music. Fully remastered audio has pressed to heavy 180 gram vinyl and repackaged in a gatefold jacket with updated art. It also includes the bonus track “Relax”, which was previously only available on the CD. Though he’s Toronto born and bred, the producer known as Marco Polo deftly and assuredly steps into the second-generation Rawkus lineup with his solo-produced 18-track effort, PORT AUTHORITY. Known for his work with Brooklyn MCs Pumpkinhead and Masta Ace, among others, Marco Polo recruited the most respected artists on the East Coast to bless his butter beats, which echo the best of the late-1990s underground era. O.C., Masta Ace, Kool G Rap, Wordsworth, Large Professor, A.G., Buckshot, Jo Jo Pellegrino, Roc Marciano, Sadat X, and Ju Ju of the Beatnuts are just a few of the MCs featured.
