First Priority/Atlantic (Japan), 1988. New Copy
Tightly thumping late 80s hip hop from Milk & Gizmo – a bit slept on even back in the day, but it holds up pretty damn well after all these years! Nothing too righteous on the rhyme side, nor as hardcore or profane as some the breakouts of the period, just straight ahead heavy beats and ... CD
