Lydia (Ms. Lydia): featuring Surface: Closer Than Friends (Promo VLS) (Alexia Records, 1994)

Originally featured on the indie hip hop comp Life After Evolution, here's is another hidden gem you probably haven't heard of before. No idea who the artist is but it is a collaboration with male R&B trio Surface and a cover of their 1988 song of the same name. Pretty much in the same smooth vein as the original, it features Snoop's former producer Battlecat on the remix!

Many thanks once again to Stuaaart for his rip ;-)
