Comment: he "met Quas inna alley" is what he said if anyone saw that in that vhs documentary Opentransport. Jeff Jank on the cover of this album who is the art director for Stones Throw, recognize. Its about twelve years now since I picked up this album on vinyl when it was first released and Im glad I was apart of contributing to the supporting of the artist such as Madlib. Those days were different from now and how independent label thrived then. I think theres too many people doin the same thing now and that it spreads it self thin and the underground is not as exclusive as it was before digital downloading took over. I grew up with the record button and every friday night staying up late just to listen and record underground Hip Hop from college radio... this started when I was 14 and that was 91' son from KZSU and magazines like the Source with the five mic system and later the Rappages and Egotrip is what use to inform me on articles and fashion, but now its blogs and hundreds of them that say the same shit. For me now its not what it looks like (which still is for mainstream fashion) but how it feels when you listen. Todays pop trend is so cookie cut that the same sound kit is being used on mainstream radio rap and not too many producers are willing to take a risk with funky samples from obscure records(happens only in the underground) just like the early 90's. But if they do, the creativity is comprimised by the record label (corporate) and the song does not last long in rotation. It seems that major record labels dont want you to know of the past because they control the future of the feeble minded youth. so any thing underground or foreign is looked down upon not knowing that lots of the ideas come from the underground but is in turn rerepersented back to the mainstream in a dumb down way. The underground is still raw but the artists who have been in the industry for almost more than a decade seems to lack contentment and the expectation from more and more new audiences in the underground gets higher and higher. The younger listeners of the underground have no references to make valid comparisons and judgment in this culture so they are the easier targets of major mainstream labels to wash over the culture clean like a blank slate and create zombies of the next generation. The youth needs to do some homework and lots more of it before the knowledge of true Hip Hop is infiltrated and loses its history.

Comment: Great album, unfortunately the vinyl record is missing the last three tracks, all of which are dope. Probably would not have bought this if I had noticed that before ordering.
