Product Details

Summary

Leaders Of The New School began recording their debut album late in 1989 under the watchful eye of Chuck D and the Bomb Squad. The end result was their masterful 1991 release A Future Without A Past. The group's members, Charlie Brown, Dinco D, Cut Monitor Milo & Busta Rhymes each complement one another, mixing classic Cold Crush Brothers style routines with a 'New School' edge. Leaders Of The New School made an impact that had them literally living up to their name. Often slept on, A Future Without A Past stands as a trail blazing release due to its mix of Jazz samples with fun creative story telling on top of pounding Hip Hop drums.

The first thing that grabs you while listening to A Future Without A Past is the unique delivery of the three rappers (Dinco D, Charlie Brown, and Busta Rhymes) in both lyrical content and flow. Stand out tracks such as "Transformers", "Sound of the Zeekers", "International Zone Coaster", "Sobb Story" and the lead single "Case of the P.T.A" all display the multi-talents of each MC and how they bounced off each other's style. "Feminine Fatt" and "My Ding A Ling" showed the groups more playful edge, while "Show Me A Hero" and "Teachers Don't Teach Us Nonsense" had the group trading rhymes in their rapid fire deliveries. With a sound so fresh and new, the production on the album rivaled what Public Enemy started and the Native Tongues finished. Often underappreciated, A Future Without A Past is 90s rap at its best and a must for any Busta Rhymes fan.

Comment: how many people remember the humpty dance...well the Leaders also had a noticeable dance and Cypress Hill also caught on to the same dance with the left right left right knees up down up down...me and my cousin use to copy their dance while head nodding...you would probably remember and do the same if you grew up on this era. it was either jump to the beat like House of Pain or do these lifting knee bends to the beat while simultaneously head nodding for days. fun times LOL definitely. yeah and Dante Ross gets the Gassss Facccce....Sike....and....im...out...once...again.

Comment: Apart from Sobb Story, this album didn't age too well. Who wanna hear guys yellin on every track ? Not a classic. The album after this is actually much more of a classic as everyone knows with "classic material", "syntax era", "whats next", etc…It makes this album look like some sort of gay joke.
