Comment: Classic track, it definitely brings back some great memories of the best era of hip hop! Does anyone know the sample used in the opening of Brooklyn Kids?

Comment: This joint deserves nothing less than 5 stars, 5 mics, 5 gunclaps. Jemini's masterpiece is Brooklyn Kids, and as a Bronx kid growing up in '88 among the five percenters, Zulu nation, BallBusters, Marble Hill Crew, Decepticons I can REALLY appreciate this track. They really did roll a hundred deep like cattle, you would get rolled up on with new gear, my sheepskin coat had staples that poked me. I heard this song on Stretch Armstrong. Had the mixtape and lost it, miss it greatly. I'd do almost anything to get that mix back. Anyway people, this is a case study in true New York Hip Hop culture. This is quintessential New York shit, concrete dun!

Comment: One of the greatest underground jointz of ALL-TIME!! What happened to this dude? This was the essence of the golden era of hip-hop... period. And of course, as many classics are, it is "OUT OF PRINT!!!" UGH find a way to cop this for purchase.... need a fix and relief from all this mainstream trash killin' the game.

Comment: I rocked this on a mixtape back in the day. I remember practicing bringing in the song for the VERY beginning intro cords. It took a LOT of time to get the timing right but the mix was dope. I lost track of this 12" as I couldn't remember the artist. Thankfully, the Internet is a BeAsT!

Summary: Jemini Is Truly Gifted
Comment: I have to tell you all, I remember listening to a radio show on the local radio station. And it was on the top 10 countdown and I was like what? When I first heard the track I was like I have to record this. And this was when tapes were still in effect! So I missed recording the entire track. But, I was happy that I got a piece of the pie. So, the next weekend, what did I do? I had my tape ready and I waited until I heard the track again. At first I was like, it's not coming on, but then I heard the instrumental in the background and the host of the show was talking about the track and let the listeners hear a piece of the interview he had done with Jemini. As soon as he finished, he played the track and I recorded it. I was so happy. Yes, I sound like a kid at the candy store, but when you are a hip hop head like me you would go crazy too! Much respect to the artist that created this track!

Summary: Classic New York Hip-Hop!!!
Comment: I got hip to Jemini back when Rap City was still the sh*t. I saw the “Funk Soul Sensation” video and thought it was pretty cool, so I went and bought the single. The song I found on the b-side was mind blowing! I was actually more taken with the remix in '95, but after listening to it again the original was the real jewel. The whiny horn, the neck snapping drums, and the lyrics that make you feel like you were there in Brooklyn (and that's something seeing how I'm from ARKANSAS). They don't make New York records like this anymore...

Comment: Good to see an emcee like Jem back in the game with Danger Mouse. This track takes me back to the time when Puff was taking over and the last few hammers from the real rang out. Lick off a shot...

Summary: I Like What I'm Hearing
Comment: Only listened to this after gettinf Jemini & DM's album which is good, but this is real good. Reminds me slightly of the beats DJ Spinna makes on ocassions. I really like this.

Summary: Dopest Song I Never Knew The Name Of
Comment: This song has been in my head ever since '95 but I never knew who did it; from that right there you can tell it made an impression on me. Since hearing this I downloaded another song that Jemini did (it's called "Funk Soul Sensation"), and in that song he's flipping back and forth between two different characters by changing his flow, style, and voice so tightly that Super-Nat would bust a nut. As far as the song 'Brooklyn Kids', the narrative is dope and the beat really draws you in. All around great song that reminds you how hip-hop is supposed to sound.
P.S. For real, blackjuene has got a point. Whatever happend to dude? Emcees like this shouldn't fall off.
