RASHEED & 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!
