    Product Details

    Summary

    Hip-Hop legend EDO.G has nothing left to prove. With his pair of debut singles "I Gotta Have It" and "Be a Father to Your Child" in 1991, Edo introduced himself to the world as a unique MC, one able to deliver both sharp social commentary and reality-based raps with slick rhymes and wit to spare. Having collaborated with legends like DJ Premier, Pete Rock and Masta Ace over a two-decade career, his legacy in the game is undisputed. But on A Face in the Crowd, Edo returns to mark the 20-year anniversary of his first album with a hunger to bring real hip-hop back to the forefront. Led by the single "Like That," featuring his Boston-based Special Teamz crew of Jaysaun (Kreators) and Slaine (La Coka Nostra), the album features guest appearances from Bishop Lamont, Chali 2Na, and M1 (dead prez), with production from DJ Premier, Statik Selektah, Explizit One, M Phases, The Breaks, Young Cee and others. After building a universally respected reputation in hip-hop, A Face in the Crowd is a fitting way to crown a 20-year career that still has many chapters left to write.

    Comment: Lars is 100% correct about this man."My own worst enemy" put me to sleep. This one is no better. In my opinion, big shug is the only boston rapper worth listening to. BTW, I've been listening to hip hop since the early eighties.

    Comment: album is okay the first four songs are pretty tight especially the first track(should have spit on that) and then you got a track here and there but alot of the beats are wack and the hooks too adn I know he wants to get that money and thats how it is these days so you cant have a thoro album all the way through these days but the lyrics are there as usual, consistant flows -better than the g rap album by far

    Comment: Wow, It's been 20 years already? I still remember the first time I heard "I got to have it". There's a couple of songs I could do without, but it's still a great album lyrically and Premo's production("Fastlane")was on point as usual. A classic Edo G album we'll be talkin abt in another 20 years.

    Comment: EDO been the most relevant/consistent emcee to keep doing it from late 80's to now. Not even KRS, Rakim, Erick Sermon or any them cats still have the credibility Edo has. Hard working, dedicated man right there. Even the beats that I dont like on this joint the song still fresh.

    Comment: Longevity in this...TOTAL, FUCKIN, WRECK!!! I'm still rockin' "I GOTTA HAVE IT" from 88'-89' cause that shit's still ill!!! As far as this album goes this shit here is a mafuckin' problem! The beats is on point, my dude been in the game and still sound just as dope as these new wack cat ass n*ggas out right now! I've listened to Ed's shit on Fat Beats records, collabos he be doin' with ACE, shit he be doin' period cause Edo is a dope MC...definitely what hip-hop music is all about and fuck all that shit about homeboi's age. Some of you n*ggas is gettin' a little ridiculous and personal with that shit...next you gon' be dissin' homeboi cause of his zodiac sign, (wtf) lol. Just stick to being a fan, show respect and pay homage, or at least voice your opinion whether good or bad but fuck all that small talk and horseshit...I USED TO LOVE H.E.R and I STILL DO...HIP-HOP THAT IS.
