Music: Aura - Crazy (feat. Kanye West and Clipse) (UPDATED WITH FULL SONG)

Once Playa decided to go their separated ways, we soon saw Digital Black and Smoke E. Digglera release their debut albums. As time went by, they went to work on their second albums and released them a short while later. The only member of Playa that has yet to have their album released is Static. You may wonder to yourself, "why?". It is well documented that Static wanted "Suppertime" to be the perfect album so he reworked his album many times until he was satisfied with it.

A few years ago, a tracklisting of Suppertime leaked onto the internet and although it doesn't have a lot of the songs that are confirmed for the album ("I Got My", "Coffee In Da Morning", "4 a Long Time"), there are some interesting bits to it.

Static Major - Suppertime On Da Feddy Side

12. My Playground
13. Suppertime
14. U Must Know Feat. Pretty Ricky
15. The Weekend
16. She Ain't So Bad Feat. Timbaland
17. Lova

Songs that you may recognize on that list, as they have all leaked onto the internet are "9 to 5" featuring Native, "Until The Wheels Fall Off", "Dirty Mind", "Here Is My Number" featuring Lil Flip and Playa, "My Playground", and "The Weekend" featuring Lil Flip and Playa. Huge Timbaland/Playa fans may also notice the never heard, but confirmed track "She Ain't So Bad".

Though that is cool and and all, the song we're going to be paying attention to is track #3, which is "Crazy" featuring Kanye West. Huge fans of Kanye may remember a song with the same title on his "Second Semester" mixtape. Is it the same song? You betcha it is. From the arrangements to the adlibs, you can tell this was a Static track.



Unfortunately, the full version of this song by Aura has never leaked onto the internet. Will we ever hear it? Who knows. And what about Static's version? That remains to be seen as well.

Big shout out to my boy Zo for the info.

EDIT #1: "Aura went back into the studio with Static (from the group Playa) and created the aforementioned Crazy, a song everybody agreed was the one to go with. Unfortunately Joni Mitchell wouldn't grant clearance for the sample (protesting against the war by refusing to support the American economy). And that was that."

EDIT #2: And if you need more proof:

EDIT #3: According to Tim Barnett, the track was made for Aura. So I guess that whole tracklist is fake, lol. They did the track back in 2002, in LA.

EDIT #4: This was my very first post on the blog and it only makes sense to start out the new year with something special. Neeze has decided to share this very rare track with us. I'm sure this will make a lot of Kanye fans, Clipse fans, Aura fans, and of course Static fans very happy.




I should probably also note that Kanye retouched the track after. The vocal sample sounds a bit different on it than the snippet and Kanye says "Joni Mitchell never lie" instead of "my homey Aura never lie". Rest assure though, I'm on the hunt for the final version of the track.
