Image: 1579812 Pressed in a meticulous re-creation of the original jacket, on deluxe large-hole vinyl, this single is not to be missed! When MCs ILL BILL, Goretex, Sabac, and DJ Eclipse came together for the first time in 1995, nobody could have predicted the tremors they would create throughout hip-hop history. Combined they would form Non-Phixion, a group that would go on to be revered in underground rap circles, would share stages with such contemporaries as Beatnuts, Gang Starr, The Roots, & more, and influence countless future generations of MCs. Their following of dedicated fans of true rap music allowed them to leave their mark worldwide, and rave reviews for their acclaimed studio album The Future Is Now, from the likes of Rolling Stone, Vibe, The Source, and more. Though the group eventually split in 2006, their reputation remains strong as ever, and only serves to grow, with this special Record Store Day release of one of their first great singles, “I Shot Reagan.” Brought to you for the first time ever on a 7" record, this 45 contains the eponymous single as well as the b-side "Refuse To Lose." Both tracks highlight Non-Phixion's strongest assets: hard-edged beats, sharp, thought-provoking lyrics, urban dystopian atmospheres, and a tongue-in-cheek sense of camaraderie not unlike the Wu-Tang Clan.
