Fast forward 20 years from when this rare 12″ came out, and not that much has changed – New Orleans is still the city that is overlooked, the city of doom, and definitely where the party people are at. ” Where __ You From ” is the sort of record that was sold at a few local stores and from the trunks of cars in the neighborhoods that were later destroyed by flooding after Hurricane Katrina. This kind of old school MCing was already dated in ’89, but young producer Mannie ( credited as ” Manny ” ) Fresh gives these tracks a bumping and infectious live feel, underpinning everything with traditional brass band rhythms.
