Had an opportunity to ask Domino about the track. Here's what he had to say.
...I do remember that track and believe I have a cassette copy somewhere. I will look around for it and if Cas is cool, I will post it at some point.
The story behind that track is, Jive was doing the soundtrack to Menace to Society and had Casual and Souls submit songs for it. The Souls submitted “Our Secret” a song we has left over from the 93 til sessions. Casual went in and did a new song on a beat by Extra Prolific. It was recorded in NY around the same time (late 92’) we were mixing Fear Itself and 93 Til.
The Main thing I remember is the chorus with Ex Pro saying ”I’m a menace and its like that.” and Casual following with “I’m Menace, and ain’t nobody gona strike back”. The beat was kinda dark and uptempo but thats about all I can recall…..and one Cas line “basically, the way I live is trifelin’.
We submitted them and The Hughes Brothers rejected them both saying they were not West Coast sounding enough. Based on what ended up on that soundtrack, it probably wasn’t a good fit anyways.
I will look for that tape and hopefully I can share it with everyone.
Shout out to Domino for always being cool with fans. The track may see the light of day.
Good call by The Hughes Brothers not accepting the track submitted by Souls of Mischief. Great track, but maybe not the right tone.
Doesn't really seem to fit in with tracks like this:
