    Product Details


    Of all the golden era rap records that are known to inspire feelings of nostalgia in today's jaded listener, it is possible that Kurious (the rapper not the monkey from children's books) Jorge's "A Constipated Monkey" tugs at a b-boy's heartstrings the hardest because Harlem's Kurious embodies the naturally positive and joyous attitude that is romantically linked to hip-hop of the past.
    Kurious covers all the bases from getting laid, rocking the mic, and sparking L's, but he also recounts a childhood of poverty and chronicles his longstanding insecurities with a great measure of humility. Like Biggie or Ice Cube, his music is memorable because of its blunt honesty; unlike some of his increasingly obsolete peers he engaged in raw self-expression without adopting a disingenuous gangster or pimp persona.
    Originally Released in 1994 on Hoppah/Colombia Records alongside Nas & The Fugees, Kurious was seemingly lost in the shuffle and spun into obscurity. A Constipated Monkey is widely regarded by many avid hip hop fans as one of the most slept upon Albums in Hip Hop History!

    Comment: I was only 9 yrs old when this dropped in 94, so at the time I wasn't into rap/hip hop. I'm 28 now and I love da mid 90's golden era, I bought this album on eBay about 5 yrs ago for $30 which IMO is well worth it. I still have this album playing in heavy rotation, specially when I'm sippin' on some hennessey. This album is dope and even tho is not a masterpiece like "illmatic," it still is a "classic" in it's own right.

    Comment: WOW the essence of 94 and slept on, you got the Stimulated Dummies the Beatnuts the Groove Merchantz etc Kurious is a CLASSIC rhymer but like wise the producer or producers also make the man. those times were great for Hip Hop when everybody was tryin to drop demos and shop for big labels and being self sufficient with a independent label wasnt a thing yet (before the internet), maybe thats why the golden era made what we all came to love the unadulterated Hip Hop. after that big labels wasnt havin that and Hip Hop going pop wasnt happenin unless The big labels took control of the creativity of the artist in order to ensure that there was cash flow so they needed a new cup of tea. Hip Hop in the mainstream wasnt the same anymore so artists took it to the Underground, thats where Hip Hop survived. Now in 2013 going independent or being underground is the way to go and its all for the music and not the dough and is best kept real... the only thing is the web is a huge ocean with alot more wack shit out and people have to look harder and not get lost in it unless the buisness and distribution and the independent machine is legit. the only things is that the next generation of listenters have surpassed the taste for that 90's and 80's flava and dont realize that the golden era is now the history of the Hip Hop culture (ei 4 elements). what also plays apart of this new generation of listeners and fans is the Hype, Pop culture on the web contends with the independent. Theres alot more Hype in the web and the game is all hype driven and kids now feed on the hype. things get old faster and one hit wonders get breaks easier and its always hit and miss so its hard to say nowadays if songs will ever become classic in the future. Maybe the word classic would turn to be taboo for the future generation and actual history will be rewritten and washed into something else and then forgotten. WOW I guess ive said too much... OH WELL.
