So with my large rant over i will go back to my lazy ass write ups :-/
I posted up some Beatnuts stuff the other week so im gonna start with people that rolled in the same circles....... 1994 and im sitting there watching YoMtv when a video comes on
Kurious - Walk like a Duck
I recognised a few cats in the video and liked the track so i grabbed the album next time i saw it (this was also the 100th C.D i ever bought) <-----how sad am i knowing that?
But this album was just awesome you have half the production credit going to the beatnunts and the other half going to the SD50's, Now that should make you want to own the album by itself. The album starts with some crazy hispanic dude swearing lots (i remember my mum shouting up at my room and saying "what the fuck are you listening to?") but after about 30 seconds beat and bassline take over completely and the album bursts into life with "spell it with a J" this is one of my favourite opening tracks to an album ever.
The album just rolls along nicely track by track with guest appearences from The Nuts themselves and a surprise appearence Casual from hierro. But alltogether if you had to rate every track on this album out of 10 i dont think any would drop below 7 which to me is a must own album. The stand out tracks are proper stand out too!
"I'm Kurious" is just a well thought out autobiography of the man himself over a great beat (pete nice & daddy rich did it!!!)
This was also a great single and came with a quite nice remix and a great non album track "mansion and a yacht" featuring Sadat X and Mike Gee.
"Uptown shit" was my personal highlite. Its by now means a 5 mic classic but its just one of those really well put together tracks that makes you nod your head like a churchill dog
Now kurious kinda went off the radar? but from what i understand he is still involved in the game but possibly under a different name? so anyone know hook me up?
But all in all a solid album and well worth the download.
