Word to the wise: Sony tapes sucked.

Some more independents that still stand-up…

Mister Voodoo – ‘Lyrical Tactics’

With a voice that bares an uncanny resemblance to a young KRS-One, this Natural Elements MC showcases advanced ‘vocabulary spill’ over a chaotic backing track. This is the kind of record Company Flow wished they’d made.


Laster feat. Ed OG - ‘Off Balance’

Edo pretty much owns this one, but the eerie beat and catchy scratch hook make this a keeper.

J-Live - ‘Longevity’

I was a big supporter of this guy when he first dropped, and this track was often forgotten in favor of the impressive ‘Braggin’ Writes’. But how can you lose with a Sister Nancy hook?

Frankenstein - ‘All Hands’

A dope record by a white guy from Canada? Sure, why not. Nothing too fancy here, and that’s why it works. Well, that and the awesome chorus.

Big Kwam - ‘Mic To Mic’

It’s a proven fact that songs that sample little kids talking are usually pretty great, if this and the Beatnuts ‘Hit Me With That’ are anything to go by.

Next up: The 80’s Edition.

Yeah, I gotta re up that shit. I’d do it now, but I deleted it last week from my work computer.

NewUkutFan,

The sample is an older song that Mr. Voodoo was on…he sampled his own rhyme. If I remember right, it was an old K.A. song, who was also on Fortress Records..
