In 1996, Sen Dog of Cypress Hill and Freaky Tah of the Lost Boyz got together in the studio to lay down some new tracks while both their groups were between albums. The project was eventually cancelled due to creative differences, and the tapes of the sessions have never surfaced, until today. Below is a transcript of the audio from these sessions.  [NoteNo idea what I’m talking about?  Click each rappers picture for a sample of their craft]

DJ Premier: Alright, Sen Dog, It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Freaky Tah. We’re gonna lay down some ill rhymes today…

Freaky Tah: Got the rhymes!

DJ Premier: Over these blunted beats I got.

Freaky Tah: And the beats!

DJ Premier: Yes, thank you Freaky Tah. Anyways, Sen Dog, when I was talking to Freaky Tah on the phone, he just couldn’t stop talking about how excited he was to record with you.

Sen Dog: Said he’s a big fan y’all!

DJ Premier: Yes, I can see the feeling is mutual. Anyways, the clock is ticking, we should probably get started with this first track. I’m just gonna let the beat roll and whenever you guys are read-

Freaky Tah: Ready!

DJ Premier: Alright, you don’t have to shout. And…we’re rolling…

[The tape rolls for 20 seconds as Freaky Tah and Sen Dog bob their heads in silence]

DJ Premier: Cut!

Sen Dog: Cut the tape!

Freaky Tah: Cut the tape!

Sen Dog: Cut the tape!

Freaky Tah: Cut the tape!

Sen Dog: Cut the tape!

Freaky Tah: Cut the-

DJ Premier: Yes, yes, we cut the tape. It’s cut. Listen guys, both of you are members of two of the most popular rap groups of the nineties. You’ve done this hundreds of times before. Let’s just buckle down and make a hit.

Sen Dog: Hits from the bong!

Freaky Tah: From the bong!

DJ Premier: Close enough. Alright, take 2 rolling…now:

[Another of DJ Premier’s patented beats begins to play as Sen Dog and Freaky Tah bob their heads in silence]

[Thirty seconds pass]

DJ Premier: What the hell is going on in there?

Sen Dog: Goin’ on!

Freaky Tah: Goin’ on!

Sen Dog: Goin’ on!

Freaky Tah: Goin’ on!

Sen Dog: Goin’ on!

Freaky Tah: Goin’ on!

Sen Dog & Freaky Tah: What the hell’s goin’ on?!

DJ Premier: I don’t think you guys understand, this studio is really expensive…

Freaky Tah: Mad paypah yo!

DJ Premier: And I’ve got two other artists to produce today

Sen Dog: Schedule’s crowded esé!

DJ Premier: I’m not really sure what else to do. We can try one more take and then I’m gonna have to pull the plug on this collaboration. We’re rolling in three…two…one…

[DJ Premier points at the two rappers, the beat begins to play and Sen Dog and Freaky Tah begin to bob their heads]

[Twenty seconds pass]

[Freaky Tah begins to wave his hands in an agitated manner]

Freaky Tah: It’s a bee!

Sen Dog: It’s a bee!

Freaky Tah: It’s a bee!

Sen Dog: It’s a bee y’all!

Freaky Tah: It’s a bee!

Sen Dog: It’s a bee!

Freaky Tah: It’s a bee!

Freaky Tah: I’m allergic!

Sen Dog: He’s allergic!

Freaky Tah: I’m allergic!

Sen Dog: Anaphylactic y’all!

Freaky Tah: Seriously!

Sen Dog: Think he means it y’all!

Freaky Tah: OW!!!

Sen Dog: He’s in pain y’all! He’s in pain y’all!

Freaky Tah: Epi…pen…

Sen Dog: Take a big hit from the pen!

[Two medics rush in the door. One prepares the defibrillator]

Medic 1: Clear!

Sen Dog: Clear!

Freaky Tah: [mumbling, barely coherent] clear…

Medic 2: Is it clear?

Medic 1: Yes, it’s cl-

Sen Dog: Says it’s clear y’all!

Freaky Tah: [passing out] clea…

Medic 2:  One at a time please!

Sen Dog:  At a time y’all!

Freaky Tah:  [unintelligible]

Medic 1:  It’s clear!  Do it already!

[Medic 2 zaps Freaky Tah with the Defibrillator]

[DJ Premier looks ahead to his schedule and places a phone call]

DJ Premier: Yeah. Murray? Cancel tomorrow’s recording with Flava Flav…
