Hit 'em with a Pie in the Eye!
SmokaJ | TORONTO | 01/05/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Yo this was a great surprise for me. I had no idea who these cats were when I got their album a few days ago, it's so dope I never wanted it to end...and when it did, I played it again.

Right now I have over 600 old-school hip-hop albums, and I buy about 2 more every week. As you can imagine, I own ALL the classics and slept-on gems (at least I think I do), so now I'm buying "experimental" (ie, hit or miss albums I've never heard of before) and I'd say about 1 out of 3 are worth the money I paid for them. Lune (pro. LOON - not Looney) Tunz, was worth every penny.

It's everything I hoped it'd be, a NY album dropped in '93 when the beats were hard or funky or whatever, but always slammin' and MC's were full of passion and energy, just having fun with Hip-Hop. This is truly hard, head-bobbin' sh*t and believe me when I tell you the beats are AMAZING. That's what stands out most w/ this album, the crazy production. It's as if they sampled some background music from a Bugs Bunny cartoon, and made it funky. The MC's are fierce and raw but their styles fit the beats perfectly. The best comparion I can think up is Onyx meets "Looney Toons."

Track List:
1)Intro
2)Lune Tunz
3)Rabbit Stew
4)Open Season
5)Hit 'em wit a Pie
6)Foxhunt
7)Jimmy Crack Corn
8)How Many Lumps
9)Gangway
10)Skip to my Loop
11)Let the Dogs Loose
12)That's Not All Folks
13)Let Me Get Some

Bottom Line: If you love 1993-95 NY Hip-Hop, this is for you. If you're looking for some fresh sh*t you never heard before, get your hands on this. I'm mad impressed with Raw Breed, these guys are seriously slept-on, . 4 stars, Peace."
Raw Breed does Looney Tunes

"This is a real relic here. Let's take a trip into the past. Luny Tunz is a concept album that came out back when Hip-Hop had no direction or expectation- just a desire to express itself and last another year. The beats are some of the best around- even today they get the head bobbing. The lyrics are corny but stick to the concept and are backed by catchy choruses that get pounded into your head--- "Gonna make rabbit stew out of you and your crew!"--- I owned this record on vynil ten years ago and every time a dropped a track at a party people always wanted to know "Who was that? That was dope!" A great listen for anyone into concept hip hop: Jeru, PE, Wu, Abby Rude, ect...
p.s. get this on vinyl from a used record store if you can."
Raw underground shit

"Raw Breed was born in 1992 and in 1993, Marc Live, Nick Swift and Alexander the Great were signed by BDP producers D-Square and Sydney Mills. In 1993, Raw Breed came out with "Lune Tunz" and it was kind of a surprising album for its time. They just wanted to be different and new, do something original and ill, something left field and sick.

These cats from the Bronx did the typical 1993 style of rapping, rough, rugged and raw. And so are the beats, also typical to use in begin '90s of hip-hop.

My favorite tracks are "Rabbit Stew", "Open Season", "Hit' Em Wit A Pie", "Jimmy Crack Corn", "How Many Lumps" and "That's Not All Folks".
If you like BDP, Run DMC, Onyx, Wu-Tang, M.O.P., Hoodratz, Rumpletilskinz, Freddie Foxxx then you must check out Raw Breed's Lune Tunz."
