Atlanta was to Hip Hop in the mid 90s what Detroit is to Hip Hop now. Fresh, raw and carving it’s own lane in music. When Outkast and Goodie Mob came together on “Black Ice” off of Goodie’s Still Standing it was like destiny manifested in song. Everyone rips it from beginning to end, with each verse getting better. I remember seeing the video and thinking that Astros jersey was so dope. Soon after the retro jersey thing took off. I can’t remember the name of the store in Atlanta that specialized in it. But, I remember spending a little bit of money on a few Mitchell & Ness jerseys through them. DISTANT REPLAY thats the name. Anyway, sit back and enjoy some good old fashion lyrical athleticism…
One of my favorite Scarface songs, Off Mr Scarface Is Back, his first solo release away from the Geto Boys. Storytelling? Check Raw Lyrics? Check Distinctive voice? Check…Scarface is top 5 dead or alive and that would have been off 1 LP…….I still remember listening to this track over and over and over again. Wore that tape OUT!!!! It made it onto just about every mixtape I made for the next couple years.
Off Kno’s solo album Death Is Silent
I remember first hearing this remix on the radio when out in San Diego visiting my family. I looked for it everywhere until I was able to track down the casingle….still have it actually. I became a Richie Rich fan for life just around this time. His voice and delivery were dope to me.
Remix of the track “Groundwork” from Wrekonize’s album A Soiree For Skeptics, produced by Stro The 89th Key (Procussions) and featuring Ras Kass, Akrobatik, Co$$, Rudi Goblen & Saheed….
