    Product Details

    Summary

    "When I was younger I was in a group with Parrish (of EPMD). He was the DJ in the group and I was the emcee. He grew up and came into his own recording deal. He always remembered that I was good, and then he heard me one day during the time after I got released. He heard some lyrics and before you know it we were in the studio. We cut the whole thing for the summer in 1990."

    Available for the first time since it's initial release is K-Solo's certified Hip Hop classic, "Tell the World My Name". The man who was introduced to the world on EPMD's masterful second album, "Unfinished Business", is deservingly given deluxe reissue treatment, packed with bonus liner notes, audio and artwork.

    Upon receiving critical acclaim for his guest appearance on EPMD's "Knick Knack Patty Wack" in 1989, K-Solo returned in 1990 with the full length record. Receiving a great push from the group that put him on, the bulk of the album's production was handled by Parish "PMD" Smith, with the successful lead single, "Spellbound", being produced by Eric Sermon, making "Tell The World My Name" in fact the first "Hit Squad" group project.

    [With 'Spellbound'], I wanted to come out in the industry with something totally different. I knew that the kids needed something to pick up on too, and I figured why not let them pick up on something that they can probably read, and at least try and stress that they should learn how to read in a rap record, and do it in a funky way, and I was successful in doing it."

    Considered severely underappreciated by many a Hip Hop aficionado, "Tell The World My Name" was a perfect marriage of signature EPMD production paired with exceptional writing from K-Solo. A well-rounded emcee, Solo didn't just make a 12-track-deep braggadocio LP, but instead also introduced listeners to his gifted story telling abilities. On "Tales From The Crack Side" Solo plays the role of a crack head who's mind is playing tricks on him as his life goes down the drain, while "Renee-Renee" is a message to a particular lady who's growing up disrespecting her body.

    Two of the most popular cuts on the album, which also happened to be concept tracks, were released as singles, "Fugitive" and "Your Mom's In My Business" (as a promo single). The previously unreleased "Fugitive" (A Capella), as well as two very rare remix versions of "Your Mom's", have been included.

    Comment: the beef between K-Solo and DMX over who originated or thought of the idea of 'Spellbound' both met during jail sentence in prison. I side with K who has a better presentation and delivery in his style of rhymes and till this day K still hasnt settled the beef. I really wasnt a DMX fan at all anyways. 'Your Moms In My Business' as a lead singles and 'Fugitive' both debuted with videos that premiered on Yo! Mtv Raps for all you suburban kids during that time, you can now peep it out on Youtube. Parish Smith (PMD) did flip that Grover Washington Jr. 'Knucklehead' sample the right way, thats why this album is a gem from the Golden Era.
