Whats up, everybody..
My copy of this EP has Gibbs' first name mispelled as "FREDDY" on the cover. The sticker on the shrink has it correctly as "Freddie." It looks too official to to be a bootleg, is this a first batch misprint? And if so, does anyone know how many were pressed like this?

I brought this up real quick in the Thuggin thread from last year.

This was JJ's reply:


my finest work.


I actually got my copy signed by Gangsta Gibbs himself, I wonder how much some Japanese collector would pay me?

thanks sunny, i was just looking for that topic.

to answer djtr3s, it's a typo, and the covers we remade after a few had to go out with the original sleeve. not sure how many are out there, i'd guess around 200.

Cool, thanks for the info, fellas..only 200 of a record that had only 1000 pressings is crazy

Haha now I have the 'toaechizown' misprint and the thuggin misprint sealed. I saw on eBay that there's a beat konducta India misprint as well. It was mixed with some local folk singers album or something like that.

Did the D-F LP ever get the proper spelling?

Think that was like the entire first run (which I got in on as well!). Could be wrong though. I never noticed that misspelling until it was pointed out.
