PMD's "Shade Business" To Be Reissued With 6 Bonus Songs, 40 Page Booklet

PMD a/k/a Parish Smith of legendary Hip Hop duo EPMD is gearing up to release a deluxe version of "Shade Business" including unheard Beatnuts-produced bonus songs and a 40-page booklet with lyrics.

PMD’s (a/k/a Parish Smith) solo debut album Shade Business was originally released in 1994 on RCA Records. Now, Almelo, Netherlands-based record label Below System is dropping a re-issued version of the project that brings listeners six new songs and an album book with unreleased content. The "Deluxe Re-Issue Edition" of Shade Business comes out on August 12 and is availble for pre-order on UndergroundHipHop.com

Shade Business was released during one of EPMD's many hiatuses, between 1992's Business, Never Personal and the 1997 reunion album, Back In Business. It followed partner Erick Sermon's own 1993 solo debut, No Pressure. PMD's debut featured Das EFX, Zone 7, Top Quality and 3rd Eye. The Hit Squad head produced much of the album himself, along with boom-bap icons such as DJ Scratch, 45 King, and Jesse West.

The original release, largely intended for vinyl and cassette, has two sides on it, “Darkside” and “Zoneside." Below System adds a "Bonusside" side with the aforementioned six songs. The newly added tracks have production by The Beatnuts, Peter Lewis and Solid Scheme. 

In April of this year, Parish dropped a project with Necro affiliate Sean Strange & Snowgoons titled Welcome to the Goondox.
