& ILL ADVISED -- INTERANL AFFAIRS/1986 RMX
PROD: DJ REVOLUTION / DJ JAZZ
QUAKE CITY INC.
The name of this crew is familiar to me. Probably from scouring for info
on the underground. "Internal" starts with this really tough
kick drum that just sets the mode for battle emceeing. Guitar and string
sections keep the whole cut interesting. Revolution then hooks up the
remix of 1986 and uses the same backdrop as Cool C used for "juice
crew dis" Kinda fly since Cool C
is also from Philly. Oh yeah and the featured artists are Malik B and
Black Thought of Roots to make this an all out Philly attack.
The opening lines prove that this isnt just the regular norm "too
many thugds on mics/ bout to show y'all niggaz/ lightning strikes in the
same place twice"
THE BEATNUTS -- WATCH OUT NOW/ TURN IT OUT
PROD: ARTIST. RELATIVITY REC.
We all know deez nutz as a doep production team and an underrated group
of emceez. The new joint "what out" caught me off guard. Why?
cause on the first listen i figured it was okay , on the same level as
"off the books" but a few days after i couldnt get that damned
flute sample out of my mind.
Yo i swear i was whistling that shit the whole day. Besides I played this
cut at a jam and it went down extremely well. This is not always the result
when a totally unknown cut is played. "turn it out" featured
Greg Nice but i dont think that its gonna light up the crowd like Side
A. So cum on, cum on, cum on, lets turn it out! We have another winner!
