Among the many striking artists that graced Bobbito‘s Fondle ‘Em label were two alluring individuals known as Yeshua Da PoED & Siah. Yeshua, now known as Yesh, represented the production side of the group, his intricate work on the The Visulaz EP often overshadowed the lyrical content, not to mention chemistry, that the two MC’s possessed.
Siah, after dropping “Repetition b/w Pyrite” and a few guest appearances, faded out of the hip-hop circuit and segued into the political sphere, the last I heard going through graduate school and getting involved in the international relations movement between the United States and the Middle East. Yesh still puts out material between his Wee Bee Foolish group as well his own records.
Some of the most impressive parts on The Visualz EP come when Yesh & Siah rhyme back to back, showcasing a unique type of chemistry seldom heard between two MC’s. This chemistry occurs most notably on the song “A Day Like Any Other”, an addictive 10 minute song that left many fans hungry for more. Unfortunately no such new material ever surfaced and their legacy is left to those few pieces of music they were able to put out. For Yesh & Siah fans out there here are three radio appearances from Halftime and Stretch & Bobbito from the Fondle’ Em heyday – full of never recorded verses and plenty of freestyles.
