what's up ST fam.
i do a lot of music production in my spare time, and with that i love making remixes to various songs...
but i seem to have a really hard time finding acapella versions of tracks i really wanna mess with.
most of the time when i get my hopes up, i put the track on and realize its just some poorly made DIY version...and other times i can't find the acapella at all.
i'm aware of youtube to mp3 conversion sites, and i use them frequently for the acapellas i AM able to find. but it seems like some producers have an endless vault of dope shit that gets passed around on places like message boards and what-not, which they use to make incredible remixes to songs i can never find :(

the main example i have that's killing me right now is John Legend ft. Andre 3000's "Green Light".
i found ONE thread on some weird mb from like '09 that had a link to an acapella version of it, but since then it's been taken down, which totally sucks. and there's a whole list of other tracks that i've had the same issue with...

i've even signed up to a couple of those sites that supposedly host studio-quality acapellas of tons of tracks both rare and popular, but sifting through them is so tedious because it's basically hit-or-miss whether or not you're gonna find something good or just another badly made DIY piece of crap. i know i'm being a little nit-picky here, but i figured i've been here for a few months and this mb seems to really know its stuff. so i wanted to ask if there's some sort of underground mecca of acapellas somewhere that's on the hush-hush for most people that i'm just not aware of...and if so, i'd like to be pointed in that general direction so i don't have to resort to making my own shitty DIY acapellas :wacko: haha. thanks in advance...

This is the best site I have found for acapellas, there are a couple of DIY acapellas, but I have found alot of studio quality acapellas on this site.

I look for the word acapella on all the 12" rap records I buy.

This.

Sorta related: I got a hold of Rich Boy's "Throw Some D's" 12" and there's an acapella. Keep an eye on the soundcloud.

There's an acapella on the 12" for 'Look of Love'.
