Rarities: Banned (FLAC Rip)

I recently got my hands on the OG pressing of UGK’s Banned EP, so I thought I would share. For the uninitiated among you, check out my original post about the EP here for essential background information.

I will admit though that I’m not entirely sure where my copy falls in terms of pressings of the EP. The CD matrix numbers don’t match the ones listed on either of its Discogs or RapMusicGuide entries and the disc art is slightly different. I don’t think that my copy is a dusty ass bootleg or one of the early 2000s BigTyme pressed reissues, but pressing information on this EP is so damn scarce that I just can’t be 100% sure.

But in any event, this rip is worlds ahead of the cassette rip I posted two years ago. For completion’s sake and historical reference, I’ve also included hi-res scans of the booklet, inlay, and CD.

from Banned (BigTyme, 1992)

Banned is an EP that includes two tracks that were cut from UGK’s major label debut Too Hard to Swallow, no doubt due to their explicitness. It’s yet another example of the fuckery going on at Jive Records, which the EP’s cover elaborates on: “They took our samples, they took our hardness, they took our friendship.”

And when I say these tracks are explicit, I mean it. “Pregnant Pussy” is probably one of the most hilariously disgusting rap songs I’ve ever heard. I mean, what else can you say about a song where Pimp C raps about babies licking up nut? “Muthafucka Ain’t Mine” (also titled “I Ain’t Claimin’ Shit” on a TH2S demo tape) on the other hand is UGK’s take on coat-hanger abortion rap, and the duo puts a decently unique spin on it.

Most people are probably familiar with the later CD reissue, but like The Southern Way before it, Banned was originally released as a cassette tape. Like the EP’s cover, the titles of the each side of the original tape—”Brought Nuts” and “Took Nuts”—further reference how Jive fucked with UGK’s music.
