    Product Details

    Summary

    Formed in Petersburg, Virginia in the early 90s, The Ill Biskits released their 1st single on the independent NYC label Khari Entertainment in 1994. The single, "God Bless Your Life" contains the rare and much sought after BSide track "22 Years", which was produced by none other than, Hip Hop legend Lord Finesse. The single generated a solid buzz and earned the duo strong spins at College radio and Hip Hop stations in Chicago, New York and San Francisco as well as with mixtape DJ's at clubs across the US. In 1995, after getting the attention of major label Atlantic Records, the duo signed an album deal, and went onto to release two more singles; the rerelease of "God Bless Your Life" (minus the cuts contained on the Khari Ent. 12") and "Chill Factor b/w Hypnotic Blessings". The full-length album, "Chronicle Of Two Losers", was completed, but never commercially released. However, promo copies of the album were pressed and released in very limited numbers on CD & Cassette only. Little else was known about the duo who, on the evidence of the material they released in their short period in the game, would undoubtedly have went on to achieve great things in the Hip Hop universe... That is, until now, as Khari Entertaiment has resurfaced to finally release this mid 90s work of art to the world-at-large. Having dug in the files and retrieved the original masters, the re-release includes not only the original unreleased Atlantic LP, but 6 bonus tracks (including "22 Years"). Complete with original artwork, the 2007 release includes classic production from Lord Finesse (D.I.T.C.), Buckwild (D.I.T.C.), Jesse West, Myke Loe, and others. In a time where Hip-Hop creativity is lacking, "Chronicle Of Two Losers" is a refreshing throwback to the golden-era of skilled emcees spitting thoughtful lyrics over rich, hard-drummed sample based production.

    Comment: This is a really great album. It's classic with lyrics that are truly prolific. If you like some of the Greats in old skool hip hop you'll enjoy this album. The influence of Krs-one, Eric B. and Rakim, and others are apparent in the style but the ill biskits have a chemistry that is hard to find and re-create. They have a unique sound with meaningful, relevant and witty lyrics. Check it out.
