Back in 1990 a group known as 2 Mad & Company consisted of a young Ray West combined with an aspiring teenageMC 2 Mad . Together they formed a short lived group the consisted mostly of basement recordings & street corner ciphers. These recordings come from a rare studio session that took place in 1991 @ the Box Studio in NYC.

This 7 inch contains 2 full songs & a bonus track from 1991 featuring Poetic Prince.
