On this LP, Kid Capri tries to move from mix-tape fame to being an MC, and though his rhymes and lyrics are probably what sent him back to DJing, the production by Biz Markie keeps this sidebar piece from mid 90s Cold Chillin' from being forgettable. Includes "News Story", "Billy", "This Is What You Came Here For", "Get 'Em", "Apollo", "Hang 'Em High","Lord's Party", "You Know My Style", "Whisper", "Joke's On You jack", "Pay Attention", "Don't Sweat Me",'Step Off" and "Shouts". LP, Vinyl record album
Hard to believe how important this soundtrack was, back in the day. One of the first good hip hop soundtracks, and a motherlode of great cuts like "Paid In Full (7 minute Cold Cut remix)" by Eric B & Rakim, "Butcher Shop" by Kool G Rap, "Colors" by Ice T, "Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste" by M.C. Shan, and "Go On Girl" by Roxanne Shante. More by Salt N Pepa, Big Daddy Kane, 7A3, and Rick James. Marley Marl produced the motherlode of these cuts, and this was the early days of the Cold Chillin/Warner alliance. CD
