Da Underground Sound: Large Professor – Still Chisel

You ever notice time moves faster everyday?  So from what I'm hearing, Large Professor's 1st Class album will celebrate its 20th birthday this fall.  In addition, the Professor himself will turn 50 March 21st ... so a tribute is definitely in order! This album dropped in October of 2002.  By this time, Large Professor (AKA Large Pro, AKA Extra P) was already a widely-respected producer in the industry. His first […]

Album Reviews: For the FKN Love by Arrested Development

Arrested Development - For the FKN Love - !!!! This album is bangin!  Not to sound surprised, but historically Arrested Development (AD) usually projects more of a warm, melodic feel more based on the lyrics... the soul.  Now this album has all of the aforementioned, but its all based on some slappin' drums.  Speech, as always, is the alpha-leader of this multi-platinum, multiple Grammy-winning group.  He leads with his heart […]

Album Reviews: Lose No Time by J-Live

  J-Live - Lose No Time - !!!! Although this is more of an EP than a full-length album, J-Live (widely known as 'the rappers rapper') features his usual innovative wordplay and production that will keep this on repeat.  Its a project that sounds mature, yet still creative and new.  It incorporates classic elements such as DJ scratching and similes but again, still sounds current with modern references.  If he added […]

Album Reviews: Big Head Science by Casual

    Casual - Big Head Science - !!!!   Thinking back, there actually WERE some good things about 2020.  Once of which was the full-length album release from Casual - "Big Head Science".  After a few listens, I'm confident in saying this is Casual's best album since his landmark debut 1994's "Fear Itself".  It features fellow Hieroglyphic crew appearances from Phesto and Tajai as well as collaborations with Ghostface and […]

Da Underground Sound: Bay to LA Since 1991

California is a big, long state.  Its a unique place because the populations are split by hundreds of miles of relatively, uninhabited farm land in the middle of the state- which literally and figuratively divides Northern from Southern California.   Since 1977 I’ve moved back and forth between San Jose, San Diego, Fremont, San Rafael, Irvine and points in between.  One particular move stands out in my mind.  In 1991 […]

Da Underground Sound: ProvySuflayy – 5 Tool Playa!

In baseball, we call them 5-tool players.  Those who could, run, throw, hit for average, hit for power, and field their position.  Hip-Hop’s equivalent would be ProvySuflayy. Also known as U.l.t.r.a.man, Provy was born and raised in Oakland, California.  He earned his following in hiphop by competing in local rap battles as well as performing at open mics and talent showcases in the Oakland- San Francisco Bay Area.  Eventually, he […]

Da Undaground Sound: Bushwick Banger

The irony is Underground Hip-Hop never dies.  It thrives on its freedom.  Freedom from contractural obligations, sponsorships, an fickle popular expectations.  It is steadfast.  A true and living example is Godfather Don. From the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York, Godfather Don rose to to prominence in 1991 with his solo debut “Hazardous”.  He then went on to produce and rhyme with the inventors of Underground, backpack rap, Ultramagnectic MC’s […]
