💯🗃💯 Excerpts from Sabotaj’s bio: “Never one to slow down or get discouraged, Sabotaj would go on to record hundreds of songs with FOD. “He is a sorcerer on the microphone,” says Haph Breed, Sabotaj’s long-time collaborator, producer and friend. “His rhymes are the potions. He has a no nonsense, straight to the point rhyme flow.” In 1998, Sabotaj formulated his first studio album “The Essence of … The 1st Dimension” through his production company 3D Productions based out of Culver City and under a record label called Nexus Records. 3D Productions, which now consisted of Haph Breed, Def Wish and him, released 12” records and initially sold them overseas. At the time, the overseas market was very hip hop friendly and enthusiasts, mainly in Japan, would embrace new artists much faster than consumers based in the U.S. “We sold nearly 10,000 records in Japan,” recalls Sabotaj. “The overseas response was crazy love.
This album successfully put Sabotaj on the radar. So much so that radio stations started playing his music and he was booking opening shows for big name artists like Nas, DMX, KRS-One, Mack 10, Blackmoon and The Pharcyde. He heavily pushed this album in the U.S. for over 4 years and even added a B-side called “Sounds of the Underground.” Despite the album generating massive buzz in the LA underground circuit, Nexus Records and Sabotaj would find themselves continually at odds and faced many differences over how the album was going to be released. The ball was ultimately dropped on the release. His heavily-hyped and long-awaited album was now shelved indefinitely.”
