Editorial Reviews

Camp Lo is back! The Sonny Cheeba and Geechie Suede duo return with their highly anticipated album called "Black Hollywood", produced exclusively by the legendary Ski Beatz. Fans of Camp Lo's 1996 debut classic "Uptown Saturday Night" album will surely be satisfied by the group's return with an updated version of their infectious Bronx soul that the group is known for and their lyrics that consist partly of Blaxploitation-style Dadaist slang. Making their first appearance on "The Great White Hype" soundtrack, their smooth party song single "Coolie High" was a minor hit, peaking at #25 on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart. The first major exposure came with the release of their second single, the upbeat and horn driven "Luchini aka This Is It." The song became a crossover hit in 1997, breaking into the top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100, and reaching the top 5 on the Hot Rap Singles chart. The duo released their debut album in January 1997. The effort was widely acclaimed, praised for their light accessible content and their smooth, funk and jazz inspired production. They went on to release a sophomore album called "Let's Do It Again" in 2002. Jump ahead to 2007 and be prepared for the arrival of a new Camp Lo, produced by the one and only Ski Beatz. Previously known just as Ski, Ski Beatz is best known for his work with Jay-Z on the album "Reasonable Doubt." He's also produced tracks for AZ, Lil' Kim, Fat Joe, Foxy Brown and of course he did almost the entire Camp Lo debut album "Uptown Saturday Night."

Camp Lo's third album, 2007's "In Black Hollywood," dropped quickly and quietly this week to little fanfare. This is too bad, because Camp Lo is one of the most interesting and unique hip hop crews around, and they also made one of the finest albums of the last ten years in their 1997 debut Uptown Saturday Night. Unfortunately, they have sustained a career of putting out exactly one album every five years, so ten years later they have yet to top that classic effort. Uptown Saturday Night was a party album that succeeded due to the style brought by Camp Lo's MCs Sonny Cheeba and Geechie Suede, as well as the producer Ski, the producer responsible for Original Flavor and Jay-Z's debut Reasonable Doubt. They brought a majestic, rich, and dense sound that nostalgically celebrated the blaxploitation era, with original sounds taking from jazz, funk, soul, and even international music in places. As MCs, Cheeba and Suede are definitely a little more style than substance, but this sets them apart. They use a huge amount of old-fashioned slang, so much at some points that their verses can be indecipherable. But when they rap back and forth to each other about made-up characters with disco slang, it's sure to bring a smile to your face. "Black Hollywood" finds Camp Lo paired once again with Ski, who produces each track.

The album's brief at 12 tracks, each averaging about two-and-a-half minutes (none even approach 4 minutes), altogether clocking in at about 35 minutes.

This cd is hot and cool, the beats are fresh and the lyrics are full of style !
For example, if you listen to Jay-Z albums ( God let us a close shave !), you cry buckets out of despair of the beats and of the lyrics, but if you play this one, the life smiles on you.
The topical Hip Hop is rapresented in wrong way by worthless rappers that don't know where the good taste resides !!!
Camp Lo is a duo from the Bronx (NYC)constituted by Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede and they use slang often to the point of incomprehensibility. The result is a amalgamated mixture of rhymes, that slips on the beats as oil !!!
Enjoy it !!!

After a stellar effort with the release of "Fort Apache" last fall, the Camp proved they could still dish it out with excellent flows, catchy hooks and head-noddin' beats. The mixtape was exclusively available on internet only. Several months later lead to talks of another mixtape in the works, this time available as a CD release. "In Black Hollywood" falls between Uptown Saturday Night and Ft. Apache (the new album contain s 7 new tracks and 5 from Ft. Apache). A lot of reviewers mentioned the redundancy of having the Apache tracks on this album, but in an interview, Camp Lo states that Good Hands records loved certain tracks on the previous mixtape so much, they wanted 'em combined with the new on Black Hollywood. So that's understandable, especially if fans missed the internet fare of Apache.

Posse from the Bronx - Reminiscent of "Krystal Karrington" and "Gotcha", the killer, bassed-out opening track of the album that propells you forward into the rest of the album. The stuttering technique is different and gets you awed in anticipation, leaving a good taste that the Lo is know for.

82 Afros - 1st of the 5 tracks featured on the Apache mixtape. I'm not too crazy about this track but it's growing on me. I would have considered "Good Green", "Digi Know" or "Lo Lean" as the next track. Ski demonstrates his lyrical capabilities near the end, with satisfying results.

Soul Fever - Reminiscent of "Soul Train" from Let's Do It Again. The perfect Foxy Brown-esque, boogie-down track for the clubs. Love the samples used in the background.

Pushahoe - Reminiscent of "Zoom" and "Rockin' It". If the Lo collaborated with Run DMC back in the '80's, this is the track that would have been created. True old-school flavor for that break-dancing sensationalism.

Camp Lo will probably forever be remembered by hip-hop audiences for "Luchini". But the problem they have now is whether or not they can be said to still have a fanbase because they have taken half a decade off between each album. Thankfully, their latest album Black Hollywood is full of good stuff.

Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede still have the goods to paint vivid lyrical pictures, especially when it comes to stories. Case in point: while songs about gold-digging women are beginning to get played out, "Material" is rather interesting. And "Jack n' Jill" is a love story not to be taken lightly. Other highlights include "Sweet Claudine", "Posse from the Bronx" and the metaphorically dope "Pushahoe".

While only 35 minutes in length, Camp Lo proves with this album that they still know how to drop on-point rhymes. Though at times they might be showing signs of age (see "Soul Fever"), you still shouldn't mind taking a trip to Black Hollywood.
