Foul Play was signed to Wild Pitch in the mid nineties, but their material got shelved when the label folded.
The only “official” tracks that surfaced from this group are ‘That’s How It Be (Boo Yah)’ on DJ Riz – In The Mix ’97 and ‘Black Cloud’ on DJ Eclipse – Wild Pitch Blends.
Foul Play was closely affiliated with Heltah Skeltah; Roc is featured on the ‘Boo Yah’ hook and also makes an appearance on the Doo Wop freestyle (which many are mistaking for a Boo Yah demo cut).
After the issues with Wild Pitch, Foul Play reformed as Black Caesar and got a deal with Tommy Boy Records. “What’s Going On” was featured on the Nothing To Lose soundtrack. They also recorded a self titled album. However, this music is far from the original material which can best be described as R&B-esq beats with decent rhymes.
The T.R.O.Y. Blog is now happy to share the complete Wild Pitch demo; 11 cuts in total including 4 interludes.
