* The Beatnuts *

Formed in 1989 in Corona Queens, Junkyard Ju-Ju, Psycho Les, & Fashion came together as a production crew working with groups like....The Jungle Brothers, Monie Love, Cypress Hill, Naughty by Nature, & Da Lench Mob. The earned their own contract with Combat Records in 1993 and released one of the hottest EP's ever to hit the streets... Intoxicated Demons.

The group was put on pause in 94 when Fashion caught a drug charge and had to do 6 months. During that time Fashion became a Muslim...changed his name to "Al Tariq" and left the group. JuJu and Psycho Les finally returned to release the Beatnuts' third album, Stone Crazy, in 1997. Musical Massacre followed two years later. Take It or Squeeze It, issued in spring 2001, with the track "Se Acabo" with Method Man. The next year, The Originators brought back Al Tariq and delivered another round of old school Beatnuts!!

If you love beats & production like i do, Then u definitly have to check these cats out. For all those who have slept on The've been missing out on a big part of hip hop!!
