Lone Catalysts - Hip Hop

I forgot about that All Natural album, I have it somewhere, it is a great album, have to find it.

Nicholas, i'm seriously wondering how this Edan guy is the best white rapper ever. I'm not hearing anything special.

I don't think I can ever expect you to like anything.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 27, 2012 4:13:21 PM PDT
Edan's 'Primitive Plus' is one of my all-time favorite albums.

Dope EVERYTHING from start to finish.

And he ain't quote the man himself...."To the black and white scene I bring the purple tangerine..."

There! He's Purple-ish.

DenverNick says:
LOL! Sure, I'll go with that! Best purple-ish rapper ever! At least someone knows what I'm talking about!

Posted on Mar 27, 2012 4:24:54 PM PDT
I was just about to make a post about this and they beat me to it, LMAO!!!

At any rate, I want to shout out three great but forgotten albums- and all of them came out the same year on Dallas Austin's Rowdy Records label:

Da King & I- Contemporary Jeep Music
Y'all So Supid- Van Full Of Pakistans
Illegal- The Untold Truth

That Da King & I is pretty dope. I used to have 'Mr All That' on constant repeat.

A few more that I used to like back in the day....

Blac Monks - Secret of the Hidden Temple
Joint Ventures - Itz Da Joint
Ultra - Big Time
Parental Advisory - Ghetto Street Funk

And Edan is DEFINITELY the Rakim of Purple-ish rappers!

Ah, man Parental Advisory- I don't think even cats in the South were up on that one!
It's kind of sad they didn't get far (They were on Pebbles' label Savvy Records).

However, you have to give it up to one of the members Kawan "K.P." Prather. He went on to be an A&R guy at LaFace and went out and discovered YoungBloodz, T.I., Ray Cash (remember him?!) and Yelawolf.

Here's some from the 2000's that would be considered favorite but forgotten albums:

Field Mob- 613: Ashy To Classy
Moochie Mack- Broke Pimpin'
Ghostface Killah- The Pretty Toney Album
Nappy Roots- Wooden Leather
Method Man- 4:21...The Day After
Keith Murray- He's Keith Murray

I just saw Brand Nubian last night and it was really dope, I also hung out with E-Swift and Tash who are some crazy cats..... Anyway I told my dude whose gonna be djing on Saturday my B-Day to bring Tears by the king and I to play the remix and original..........One of my fav albums ever, majesty was a dope producer and DJ...... For the youngins that don't know, Majesty was the DJ in Juice that Omar Epps or (Q) battled on the turntables and beat....

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 5, 2012 5:13:36 PM PDT
Ah! I didn't know that it was Majesty on the decks in 'Juice'.
I remember seeing Da King & I on the Ricky Lake Show, arguing over money or something like that. By the end of the show, they were basically hating each other. This was right after they dropped 'Contemporary Jeep Music'.

From what I remember Sloany, their differences stemmed from Majesty starting a side business without Izzy's knowledge and/or input. Izzy felt whatever they did should have been a team effort. Even though they didn't officially breakup until the end of 1994, that episode of Ricki Lake was pretty much the nail in the coffin for Da King & I.

By the way, Majesty was doing some production for a lot of folks- most of whom were R&B artists. He produced songs for Rufus Blaq and short lived groups like Before Dark and Elusion. His most famous song that he did was the title track to SWV's third album "Release Some Tension".

I wouldn't say it was a forgotten album, but I listened to Big L- The Big Picture yesterday for the first time in quite a while. Its a really good album.

did you ask about bottoms up by Obie trice? its a 3/5 for me. I cant say its better than Cheers. Its still a good listen. Maybe you'd feel different about it, knowing we have different tastes.....:)

DL says:
Hopefully I'll get that in the mail this week. Believe it or not "Average Man" from Cheers is one of my favorite tracks of all time. It might not seem so outstanding but that song goes hard.
