    Product Details

    Summary

    The Legion is back with some more BX rawness for your ears! Following the success of their "Straight Flow / Automatic Systematic" 7-inch from earlier this year, the Bronx trio (Chucky Smash, Molecules and Cee-Low) hits you with two more unreleased tracks before they bless the hip-hop world with a brand new album. "Keep Your Eyes Open" and "Street Truth" are two certified bangers recorded back in 1995 at the infamous D&D Studios, NYC.

    As signees to Black Sheep's One Love imprint, The Legion debuted in 1993 with the brilliant underground classic, "Jingle Jangle" - an ill piano sample driven track with a highly quotable finishing verse from Dres of Black Sheep. The Legion followed up with the sweet laden Roy Ayers looped up single, "Legion Groove" and their now much sought after debut album,"Theme + Echo = Krill" (1994) featuring affiliated acts like Black Sheep, Chi-Ali and Showbiz & A.G.

    After a hiatus for a few years, they resurfaced with the 12-inch, "Street Thing / Caught Up" (1998) on Legion Records/Fat Beats and some appearances on Dres' "Sure Shot Redemption" album. Then the Bronx trio went quiet.

    While Molecules handled dope production for Dres, Milano, Mos Def, Amanda Marshall and even appeared on P!nk's hit single "Stupid Girls", Chucky Smash's been hosting radio shows in the BX. The three long-time friends never stopped doing music together but it was already 2011 when the group finally made a dope comeback on the Beneficence collabo track, "Aim, Fire, Spit" , followed up by the critically acclaimed "Straight Flow / Automatic Systematic" 7-inch (2012) along with some dope videos combining old/unreleased tracks with new visuals.

    Take a trip down memory lane with these dope Bronx tales and street beats from The Legion!
