• Gravediggaz Feat. Shabazz The Disciple & Killah Priest - Diary Of A Madman (...
    From the album "6 Feet Deep" Produced By RNS & Prince Paul

    Gee Street, 1994.

    Gravediggaz is an American hip hop group from New York City, known for its dark sense of humor and abrasive, menacing soundscapes. The group was formed in 1991, bringing together Prince Paul (The Undertaker), Frukwan (The Gatekeeper), Poetic (The Grym Reaper) and RZA (The RZArector). It came about largely due to the efforts of Prince Paul. The group pioneered the small hip-hop subgenre of horrorcore.

    The group's first album was originally to be titled Niggamortis; however, this potentially risqué title was changed to 6 Feet Deep for the American market (European versions of the album retained the original title, and also included the bonus track "Pass the Shovel"); it was released on August 9, 1994. The four members adopted Gravedigga alter egos for their work with the group: RZA became The RZArector, Poetic became The Grym Reaper, Prince Paul became The Undertaker and Frukwan became The Gatekeeper. In 1995, the three rapping members (without Prince Paul) released a collaborative EP titled "The Hell EP" with UK trip hop artist Tricky.

    The second full-length Gravediggaz album The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel was less humorous, dealing more with social and political issues; it also used calmer and more conventional production. Prince Paul played a considerably smaller role in the making of this album, with many of the production duties now taken care of by RZA and his Wu-Tang affiliates (including True Master and 4th Disciple).

    A bootleg Gravediggaz album surfaced in 1998, called Scenes From The Graveyard. It featured seven unreleased tracks plus some remixes from the first two albums.

    Around 2000, Gravediggaz recruited DJ Diamond J. Poetic died of colon cancer in July 2001. Frukwan stated in an interview not long after Poetic's death that a new album using leftover Poetic material would be released. Nightmare in A-Minor, the third official album for Gravediggaz, came out in 2001; it featured two of the original members, Poetic and Frukwan. This album was their darkest work yet, including many references to Poetic's struggle with cancer, as well as apocalyptic themes to do with the teachings of the Five Percent Nation. Although RZA did not take part in the album, some Wu-Tang Clan affiliates such as 4th Disciple, True Master and Beretta 9 were involved. The album was mostly produced by Poetic and Frukwan. A different version of the album (minus the song "Better Wake Up") was released in 2002, for which some of the tracks created by Poetic were replaced or altered.

    In 2003 Frukwan released his debut solo album, Life. The fourth Gravediggaz album 6 Feet Under was released in 2004 by Cleopatra Records and featured songs from Nightmare in A-Minor and Life. According to Frukwan, he had nothing to do with the release and claimed that song titles were changed without permission, making it an unauthorized release.

    In 2010, Gravediggaz recorded a new song, "2 More Cups of Blood". In 2011, it was announced that the group had been recording new tracks involving Shabazz The Disciple & Killah Priest.

    Lyrics:

    [Hook x2]
    All around the world, same song
    All all around the world same song
    [Shock G]
    I came for the party to get naughty, get my rocks on
    Eat popcorn, watch you move your body to the pop song
    That I'm singing, dinga-linging, funky beats ringing
    Everybody's swinging in the place
    As I kick the J-A-Z-Z-Y style
    R&B mixing it with the hip hop swing beat
    Champagne in my hand, it won't be long till I'm gone
    It's just the same old song
    [Humpty Hump]
    It's just a freestyle, meanwhile, we keep the beat kickin
    Sweat dripping, girlies in the limo eatin chicken
    Oops don't get the grease on your pantyhose
    I love ya Rover, move over, I gotta blow my nose
    Sneezing, but still I'm pleasin to all the slimmies
    Pull out my jimmie, time to get busy wit a Jenny
    If it's good and plenty, dont you know
    There I go, there I go, there I go
    But I dont go nowhere without my jim hat
    If I'm rapping, cause she's clapping
    Then I'm strapping cause I'm smarter than that
    Then girlie maybe we can get along
    Cutie after cutie, it's just the same old song
    [Hook x3]
    [Money B]
    Money B, the freaky deaky, the sqeaky meaky up and down
    As a matter of fact ill be right back I gotta take a leak
    So I'm drainin entertainin, but I got fame
    And the bases I touch too much for me tryin to be namin
    Aiyyo, you saw me on cable and grinned
    I busted in and I was Gone With The Wind
    Clark Gable back in Oakland its the same old song
    Sport these shorties, same freckles and hat
    Drinkin the same 40's
    [Humpty Hump]
    Hypothetical, political, lyrical, miracle whip
    Just like butter, my rhymes are legit
    Cause I'm the humpty. Not humpty dumpty, but humpty hump
    Here a hump, there a hump, everywhere a hump
    [Shock G]
    Ah shut up and just listen
    Not dissin dont get me wrong
    But to me its just the same old song
    So just watch, my name is Shock, and I like to rock
    And you can't stop this
    2Pac go ahead and rock this
    [2Pac]
    Now I clown around when I hang around with the Underground
    Girls used to frown, say I'm down, when I come around
    Gas me and when they pass me they use to diss me
    Harrass me, but now they ask me if they can kiss me
    Get some fame, people change, wanna live they life high
    Same song, can't go wrong, if I play the nice guy
    (Claimin' fame, must have changed, now that we became strong)
    I remain, still the same (why Tu'?) cause it's the same song
    [Hook x3]

  • Pharoahe Monch - The Light (1999) | Official Video
    From the album "Internal Affairs" Produced by Diamond D

    Rawkus Records, 1999.

    Troy Donald Jamerson (born October 31, 1972), better known by his stage name Pharoahe Monch, is an American rapper from Queens, New York. He is known for his complex lyrics, complex delivery, and internal and multisyllabic rhyme schemes.

    Monch released three albums as part of the rap duo Organized Konfusion with partner Prince Poetry: The self-titled Organized Konfusion, Stress: The Extinction Agenda and The Equinox. The duo handled a large amount of production on these albums themselves. All albums received positive critical reviews, but moderate sales. As a result, the duo split up after recording their final album The Equinox in 1997. Prince Poetry has since denied the possibility of an Organized Konfusion reunion.

    Pharoahe Monch then signed to Rawkus Records, an indie label. After making several guest appearances on albums like the best-selling Rawkus compilation Soundbombing II, Monch's much-hyped debut, Internal Affairs was released in 1999. The first single of the album, "Simon Says", became a hit single, peaking at No. 97 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was also featured in the 2000 cinematic releases Charlie's Angels and Boiler Room. Despite its success, the song caused controversy when Monch was later sued for the song's use of a sample from Akira Ifukube's Gojira Tai Mosura in the hook. The uncleared sample use caused a halting in his album's distribution.

    After Internal Affairs and the controversy over its hit song, Pharoahe would not release another solo project for several years. He did still make some songs and guest appearances however. In 2000 he featured with Mos Def and Nate Dogg on the hit song "Oh No" from the Rawkus compilation record Lyricist Lounge 2. He contributed the song "Fuck You" to the Training Day soundtrack in 2001, and rapped the theme song to Madden NFL 2002. He also provided vocals on the track "Last Dayz" on the 2001 Adam F Album Kaos: The Anti-Acoustic Warfare and remixes of the track on the follow-up Drum & Bass Warfare, released the following year. In 2003 Pharoahe released his final single through Rawkus Records, "Agent Orange", a war inspired song which revisited the 1991 Organized Konfusion track "Releasing Hypnotical Gases".

  • Illegal - Back In The Day (1993) | Official Video
    From the album "The Untold Truth" Produced by Colin Wolfe

    Rowdy Records, 1993.

    Illegal was a short-lived hip hop duo composed of Jamal Phillips (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and Malik Edwards (Holly Hill, South Carolina) that was signed to Rowdy Records. The duo was known to be affiliated with the hip-hop crew Hit Squad, made their debut with the album "The Untold Truth" released in 1993, which became a minor success, peaking at #119 on the Billboard 200 and #19 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. Several tracks on the album, including its two singles "Head or Gut" and "We Getz Busy" were diss songs directly aimed at rivals Kris Kross and Da Youngstas.
    The duo virtually disappeared from the public eye until 1995, when it teamed with Too Short on the song "Thangs Change" after which the group disbanded.
    Jamal Phillips would later release his debut solo album "Last Chance, No Breaks" in 1995 on Rowdy Records. Malik released one single for Rowdy Records titled "Malik Goes On" but his debut album was shelved. He worked with Monica on "Miss Thang" and later with his cousin Snoop Dogg on "Doggystyle", Warren G on "Regulate... G-Funk Era", "Take a Look Over Your Shoulder" and Tha Dogg Pound on "Dogg Food" and finally released his debut album in 2005 "The Game Needs Me".

    "Back in the Day" was the third and final single released from Illegal's debut album, The Untold Truth. It was written by members Jamal and Malik, each detailing their hardships growing up. The song peaked at 80 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks and 21 on the Hot Rap Singles and was the last release from Illegal.

  • Naughty by Nature - Feel Me Flow (Music Video) (1995)
    Lyrics:

    You 'bout to feel the chronicles of a bionical lyric
    lyrically splitting dismissing
    I'm on a mission of just hitting
    now it's written and kitten hitting wit mittens
    I'm missing wishing man listen
    I glisten like sun and water while fishing.
    Bust the move and then swerve
    Serve words with nerve embedded I said it word
    Damn, you nerd man, you heard
    Coming from the town of Illy and alleys are 
    full of Phillies and Rallys suckers get
    Silly as Sally then found in alleys, I'm rowdy really
    So here we go now, 
    Holla if ya hear me though, come and feel me flow
    Never mixing with tricking brothers bitching
    Over fixin's that ain't fitting to be hitting.
    On nothing splitting things that's bitten
    And getting written off
    Like a fatter bad bladder boy ya pissing me off
    Before you even started so what
    So long see you fly by my try how else 
    Could I say it when you play it try boom bye bye.
    So here we go now, 
    Holla if ya hear me though, come and feel me flow
    So here we go now, 
    Holla if ya hear me though, come and feel me flow
    The flow pro poetical with skills only
    A vet'll know better know where's 
    The wetter flow that's on point like
    Decimals manhandling new crews
    Partying with the Zoo Crew
    Looking for the pink in poo poo.
    I thought you knew too stone style is of stamina
    Jamming ta while we planning ta jam
    We bust plus we're the party
    Amateur damager managing damaging mics
    Men and even mannequins.
    You're a fan again now I want to know whose the man again?
    Naughty's back like vertibrates word to hey-a-ho
    The way I show you pray I flow
    Steady breaking to the boogie so bang time
    To slang bang and watch all the poo tang tangs hang
    So here we go now, 
    Holla if ya hear me though, come and feel me flow
    So here we go now, 
    Holla if ya hear me though, come and feel me flow
    Play and Kay'll break the body of a beat
    The beat the break into boogie
    Firm and fully chase bass lines like bullies
    All we want to know is if your body want to party
    It's 'nough poo tang tang for everybody
    So hip up and split up get up
    Get up your wit up souped up put your dukes up
    No guts set up for sit ups flip up watch us rip up. 
    Shakes shows until they fizz up
    Rizz up like your with us if not zip up 
    You lip up whip up.
    Hits with ransom's foul styles get and ones
    We come back cause we heard 
    Hip hop needed another anthem
    Black like Noah in fact and for ya
    If we was back in the days with the Drifters 
    We would've been known as the Flowers
    Bevin these since the seventies 
    Find me so we went crazy in the eighties
    So we won't kiss heinies in the nineties
    Oops the Naughty's troop in sections of forties
    So clap your hands and hold your shorty I'm Naughty.
    So here we go now, 
    Holla if ya hear me though, come and feel me flow
    So here we go now, 
    Holla if ya hear me though, come and feel me flow

However, his career was later derailed due to legal problems.

Shyheim released his fifth solo album, Disrespectfully Speaking, October 2009 on his label Bottom Up Records.

  • Twin Hype - Nothin' Could Save Ya (1991) | Official Video
    From the EP "Double Barrel" Produced by King Shameek

    Profile Records, 1991.

    New Jersey's Twin Hype released a pair of albums during a short career that spawned one undeniably brilliant single in the form of "Do It to the Crowd." Twin brothers Sly (Glennis Brown) and Slick (Lennis Brown) were joined by DJ King Shameek (Jose Matos) for a self-titled 1989 album and Double Barrel, a 1991 follow-up -- both of which were released on Profile.

    Each album had its fair share of filler, and neither Slick nor Sly were exemplary rappers, but singles like "Do It to the Crowd" and "Wrong Place, Wrong Time" provided thrills. The trio presumably split after the second album. ~ Andy Kellman.
