Gauge & Cella Dwellas | Cranium [Remix] | 1997

Gauge “The Mental Murderer” is a rapper from Flatbush, Brooklyn, with a long career in the underground scene. He first started rapping in the late 80s in a group called B.A.S.S. (Brothers About Sight & Sound) with his old friend Lord Have Mercy from the Flipmode Squad, but his leap to popularity came through Canadian-born, Brooklyn-dwelling rapper Maestro Fresh Wes who put him on the remix of “Prey To Da East” firstly, and later produced his multi-selling 12’’ single “Cranium” in 1996. Cella Dwellas’ UG and Phantasm - one time Gauge’s dancer and hype man, respectively - showed up for the remix.
