Ridiculously Slept on. 1995 Classic
? | United Kingdom! | 05/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Incase you don't know Das Efx" is made up of (2 Mc's) Skoob & Dray whom have both mastered two of the most original & influential styles ever to be heard by hiphop audiences, that would soon be admired and imitated over the years. When Das Efx made themselves known, with the critically acclaimed "dead serious" back in 1992, hiphop fans didn't know what hit 'em. " Rhyming with such amazing energy, enthusiasm and best of all the ability to compliment each other by exchanging lines back and forth, taking turns in the spotlight, Das Efx posess a style that is second to none. 3 Years after their debut, in the era of more rugged & rough-esque material, Das Efx step up to the plate and serve more than most heads could chew. The first thing to note about this album is that it is so dam consistent, there is not one filler on here! I can assure you! Consisting of 20 full tracks, with production from such legends as; DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Easy Mo Bee, Showbiz and more unknown but equally as outstanding producers; Solid Scheme, Kevin Geeda, Klark Kent & DJ Skratch any beat junkies will not go wanting with this album. It is amazing, how an album with such an outstanding lineup of producers didnt immediately get more recognition (but there you go). Now, the beats aren't the only superior factor of this album, the lyrics are just as good, with Skoob & Dray kickin' some of their best verses yet...staying consistent in all tracks making any pending doubts erased. Without a doubt, any fan of East Coast, Mid 90's, hardcore hiphop should have this in their collection already, as it is a genuine classic that still hasn't deserved the recognition it deserves. All I can say is if you are reading this, and you consider yourself to be a Hiphop fan, then check this album out as you may have found that special something that special album that you have been looking for. PEACE!!! (P.S. check out everything else by Das Efx, as it is all brilliant Early-Mid 90's material that needs to be recognised, except for the "How We Do" album as that is just an awful fall off in the new millenium)

"Good album by Das EFX. I think that this album deserves 5/5 stars. The beats are real hiphop. Good vibes and gritty sounds. Good lyrics of course, the production is the best part probably. Real grimey hiphop beats with nice loops. Some of the tracks on here are STRAIGHT classics hands down. Definately pick this album up. My fav song is "Comin Thru". One of the illest beats EVER! Check this cd out no doubt, you wont be dissapointed.

My Top 5 Songs
1.No Diggedy

3.Microphone Master
4.Hold It Down
5.Comin Thru"
