In Eric B and Rakim’s 1987 debut, Paid in Full, Rakim declared on the
single of the same title, “So I dig into my pocket, all my money spent
So I dig deeper, but still coming up with lint”, he painted a picture that
millions worldwide could relate to no matter the background or era.
In 92, a few years later when rap music started reaping the fruits of
its labor, Showbiz & AG boasted of financial prosperity and the value
of hard work on their single, Fat Pockets. What is a pocket exactly?
Is it exclusively in your coat, jeans or shirt? Is it a drummer laying a
tight groove or maybe where the quarterback resides on the field?
No matter the scenario, pockets are containers. Our record collections
contain the soundtracks to our lives often providing music for every
occasion and memory. The collaboration of East coast pioneer 45
King and west coast favorite Blu is an occasion so special, it should
be held in company of your most prized vinyl. Only the forces of
nature could bring this producer and mc together Redef captured
the rarity on a limited edition 45 beautifully designed by Joe Buck.
The A-side, aptly titled, Pocket Full of Miracles is symbolic on
various levels. In commemorative fashion, Blu celebrates the career
homecoming achievement of working with such royalty over The
King’s chipper yet knocking beat. The song channels the catchiness
of Jay-Z’s 45 King produced breakout opus, Hard Knock Life. Pocket
Full of Miracles is a sureshot contender for instant classic even
without Smokey Robinson’s backup group. Don’t be surprised if it
becomes an anthem. Includes 45 King instrumental version on the
