Sucker DJs (I Will Survive) (original, Marley Marl's sucker dub, suckapella)

12-inch (Item 35105) Party Time, 1983 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch


If we remember right, this cut by female MC Dimples D was the inspiration for Run-DMC's "Sucker MCs" and Roxanne Shante's "Runaway", or maybe it was the other way around. In any case, a nice example of early Marly Marl production over a snapping Lynn drum beat, that quotes Red Alert's "Heaven & Hell" theme.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

The first solo single from the Genius after Wu-tang. OK, he did solo stuff on Cold Chillin, but we're not really countin' that. The verses on "Labels" string together the names of most of the larger hip hop labels for a tale of industry rule #4080. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Importe/12, 1982. Very Good
A classic electro groove – and one of the tracks that's a contender for the origin of the word "hip hop"! A very nice groove with an early Arthur Baker feel, and the kind of cut that we slept on during the 80s, but which sounds totally great today! 3 different edits. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Nice post disco 80s club track, with a very New York sound, with elements of commercial soul and 80s groove combining at a mid tempo pace, with a nice dubby mix on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record
