Featuring loads of guest appearances, but the two best tracks are ones they did without any help, "F.A.Y.B.A.N." (that was later redone by Chicago underground MC Prime) and "Who Shot Rudy?" (even though he's on his way out, it's still worth it.) Guest MC's include Godfather Don ... read more CD

Warlock, 1986. Used ... $9.99
The Skinny Boys may be weightless, but they've got a nicely heavy sound that often comes as much from their own human beat box work as it does from sampled beats and other instrumentation!
