Lord Finesse and fellow hip-hop legend KRS One team with Slice-of-Spice to drop the unreleased original version of “No Gimmicks” – a boom bap banger dripping with enough golden era soul to make a true-schooler shed a tear as the sleigh bells and horns drop. KRS opens with a bombastic patois inflected intro that could fool you into thinking 1996 is back. Well, it sort of is. What you are listening to is the original studio recording before it was updated for release at a later date. In other words, a special treat. The intro is a great addition to the track that also includes slightly different lyrics from the Blastmaster.
