    Product Details

    Summary

    The Cactus Album, also known as The Cactus Cee/D, is the debut album by hip-hop trio 3rd Bass, released on Def Jam Recordings on October 23, 1989. The album received positive reviews from the hip hop press, and the group gained some publicity by being arguably the second white group to achieve hip hop credibility, after the Beastie Boys. It was certified gold by the RIAA on April 24, 1990, the same day as Biz Markie's The Biz Never Sleeps, which was released two weeks prior to The Cactus Album. The Cactus Album peaked at #5 on Billboard's Top Hip Hop/R&B Albums chart and at #55 on the Billboard 200 chart. In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums. A decade later, Rhapsody (online music service) included The Cactus Album in its list of "The 10 Best Albums By White Rappers".

    Comment: At the time this album was released, I would've given this 5 stars, but just the fact they didn't include Marley Marl's version of "Product Of The Environment"is the reason for my rating.

    Comment: cant forget that Serch also discovered NASTY NAS... not so sure about The Arsonists but they had a 12' 'Venom/Seed' on Serchlite. just to make it clear and they were signed to Bobbito's Fondle em rec and Non-Phixion was really discovered by Serch.

    Comment: who gets the gas face?... Dante Ross use to get the gas face... not really. Hammer definitely got the gas face. the wesell corporate record excec got the gas face, did Bobbito get the gas face? NO but he signed the contract LOL. if you know what im talkin about im referencing the visuals of the video for 'The Gas Face' and its gotta be a bold statement at the time (Golden Era) when every rap act was tryin to get signed to a major corporate label and when they got signed eventually they got shelved or they got dropped or dropped themselves all due to high expectations of sellin and going platinum. to the major record company the artsy and lyrical skillz never mattered and the artist most often fell back into obscurity and went independent, thats the best part no holds bared on the creativity do what you wanna do say what you wanna say. anyways this album does have some memorable songs like Brooklyn-Queens (it did have a video) and Steppin To The A.M. . I remember hearing of the Serchlite Mc Search's label who then discovered The Arsonists who then signed to Fondle-em and also discovered Non-Phixion if im not mistaken.
