(Part 11) Slept On Hip Hop In The 90's

Here's a few albums that i missed on the 1-10 posts.......


Double XX Posse - Put Ya Boots On (1992)
Double XX Posse deserved hell of alot more attention than they ever got. Headcracker, Get Ya Props Up, School of Hard Knocks & the banger Not gonna Be able ta DOE! A str8 get hype album from the golden age of hip hop. These headz got mad play on YO MTV Raps & Rap City..but never made it to that other level for some reason.

Big Mike - Somethin' Serious (1994)
"Now they got the flashlight lookin for Big Mike" The Geto Boys forgotten soldier Big Mike came correct in the 94 with this solid debut album. Classic southern rap flavor with great lyrics & outstanding production. Havin Thangs, Playa Playa, & Smoke'em & choke'em were my jam's. This was classic south right here. On par with any of his fellow Geto Boy's solo joints.

New Jersey Drive Vol.1 (1995)
This was one of the best hood movies ever and the soundtrack was no different. Ill Al Skratch - Don't Shut Down On A Player, Redman - Where Am I?, Lords Of The Underground - Burn Rubber, Outkast - Benz Or Beamer, Keith Murray - East Left & "You can't forget New Jersey" Queen Latifah's banger - Jersey...which she produced herself.

New Jersey Drive Vol. 2 (1995)
This sountrack was so dope they could'nt fit all the heat onto one tape. Black Moon & Smif-N-Wessun - Headz Ain't Ready, Naughty By Nature - Connections, Jeru The Damaja - Invasion, O.C. & Organized Konfusion - You Won't Go Far, Mad Lion - Own Destiny. IMO one of the greatest soundtracks of all time.

Top Authority - Somethin' to Blaze To (1993)
Flint Michigans Top Authority is one of those groups that never had any promotion or videos(that i can remember)but still made major noise on the undergroung hardcore hip hop scene.This is a str8 classic gangsta album front to back. The lead MC's Shotgun & Flex have a stricking resemblance to Scarface's voice & flow. The track "Voice's" is a heart pounding track that will get anyone vex just listening to it. Level of a Gangster, Another Murder, & Pop Him are all great hood tracks that have that heavy bass & hardcore feel. "93" (Things Ain't How They Should Be)is the feel good jam of the album...the slow rap jam that comes from the heart. This album is just as good today as it was in 93...non stop G-Music!
