"White Lines " is a song by Melle Mel, released as a 12" in on Sugar Hill Records. The song, which warns against the dangers of cocaine, addiction, and drug smuggling, is one of Melle Mel's signature tracks. The bassline is taken from a performance of the Sugar Hill house band covering "Cavern", a single by New York City band Liquid Liquid.
Pete from London, United Kingdom During recording of the anti-cocaine single "White Lines (Don't Do It)," Flash and Mel had a falling out. Also, despite the group's success, Flash had not seen much in the way of profits, so he left Sugarhill Records and took Kid Creole and Rahiem with him to sign a deal with Elektra Records.
Take a Bite Outta Rhyme: A Rock Tribute to Rap examines rap's impact on the worlds of alternative rock and heavy metal -- or, specifically, on the most popular mainstream trends in those areas. That means the compilation is devoted primarily to alt-rock novelty acts and aggro rap-metal; the bigger names include Dynamite Hack, the Bloodhound Gang, and the Fun Lovin' Criminals in the former.
