A tight full length debut from Baby Blak! You may remember Blak from his appearance on Jazzy Jeff's Magnificent LP last year, where he added a surprising lyrical depth to that project. He extends that vibe masterfully throughout his own debut, which also benefits mightily from DJ Revolution's firm hip hop production. It's the kind of LP we wish Nas was still making; lots of real world street stories without glamorizing or polishing over anything, and a no nonsense production style. Revolution handled the bulk of the booth work, but there's some great guest turns on the knobs by Soul Supreme, Joey Chavez, Kev Brown and others. Blak brings in some seriously skilled guest MCs, too, including Planet Asia, the soon to HUGE Obie Trice, Mr. Lish, Lady Alma and others. The whole thing's as tight as can be, and ranks as highly in quality as the other successful albums on the young, hungry Rapster label – which is already well known for signing artists like Jazzy Jeff, Freddie Foxx, King Britt and others and giving them the creative control they need to work well! Tracks include "Once You Go Blak", "Wake Up", "Tables Turn", "Crazy", "The Youth", "Starvin' Artist", "Peace", "No Coast All Stars", "Daddy Dearest", "Diamonds" and more. (Includes the printed inner sleeves.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
