probably the most famous rap-crew outta all those "wu-affiliates". SUNZ OF MAN, consisting of Killah Priest (aka The Iron Sheik From The Middle East), Hell Razah (aka Israel The Arch Angel), Prodigal Sunn and 60 Second Assassin, had their debut in 1994 with their record "soldiers of darkness / five arch angels" and since then dropped several wax (12"s, EPs and LPs). more information is found in discogs.com and their myspace-address... now back to this EP that has been released in 1998 on Echo Int. Recordings. this fine but very dark and moody EP serves us the 4 mouth-watering songs "who are the sunz of man", "the valley of death", "the valley of kings" and "bring back the mike". check it out n enjoy...

here's the first review of the L.A. crew MANNISH (Jekill & Jive), released in 1995 on Correct Records. the twelve brings the two tracks "jive u da man" and "mannish". production credits go to B-Zar and Devastatin, scratches done by DJ Nu-Mark. definitely some fine 90s random rap you still should be able to easily find in stores...

this is the 1999 release on Indus Records from the well-known crew RUBBEROOM outta Chicago. the twelve right here's called "reconstruction" and comes with the tracks "sector rush-rebuilt" and "evil archangels II". these tracks were featured in the same year on their full-length 2LP called "architechnology". great work you should give a listen to...
and another obscure record from the late 90s to which I can't provide much background. the wax was dropped by the emcee DELIK for Harlem World Ent. label in 1997. this "independent-as-f**k" record comes with the tracks "take it to your head" and my personal fav on the b-side "booda 1(one) 2(two)". all production by "the Belizian". definitely worth checking out n big-up to my man Alkuttruz who (if I remember correctly) sold me this wax that time...
outta Staten Island NY comes the crew NAPPY CRUMB SNATCHERS. as far as I know also to be put into the sector of all those "wu-affiliates". now this gem right here is their "real shaolin EP" from 1995. label of this wax is Black Prince Records. tracklist: "black rain", "from the slums", "lump sums", "mentals of da mind", "zero 8". some good ol dirty rotten steez right here so enjoy!
let's go ahead with another fine EP from that great vintage 1997. released on 4Self Entertainment we present you the crew DA NOE DOE NETWORK from the big apple. the ep has totally 6 tracks plus instrus and is (maybe except track 1 coz of its r'n'b-parts) a pure listening pleasure! tracklist is: "e.n.y. groove", "in a minute (I'm a loose it)", "next stop", take a journey", "yes, yes y'all" and "once upon a time". all production is done by Rock the MC and Skemen (K.C & Gab).
label is Som / EMO Recordings and release-yeas was 1997.
peace n enjoy!
