    Product Details


    Back in the early '90s, Phat Kat helped to put Detroit on the hip-hop map as a member of First Down, pairing with legendary DJ/producer J Dilla (R.I.P.), then known as Jay Dee, years before Dilla's involvement in Slum Village. After meeting Guru and Premier during a promotional stop through Detroit in 1994, Phat Kat gave them a demo tape--the first demo he had ever passed on to industry folks, he says -- and First Down ended up getting signed to Payday records on the strength of one song, the now-classic "Front Street," which appeared on the Representing the Streets compilation. First Down seemed poised to be one of the first Midwestern groups to blow up nationally; unfortunately, their label was folded into a much larger company and they were lost in transition. Undeterred, the MC also known as Ronnie Cash stayed on the grind in the ensuing years, appearing on albums by Dilla and Slum Village, hitting the road frequently, and releasing his first solo album Undeniable in 2004, followed in Spring 2007 by Carte Blanche, his first release for Look Records.

    Comment: "Carte Blanche" is only a boring album name to someone who never grasped the full effect or message of the music. It is French for unrestricted power / full authority. It is deeply rooted within Kat's struggle with an old label (Barak Records) that lasted over a decade. The name is not only appropriate & fitting for this album, but supremely fulfilling for Kat, as he was able to take complete control over the direction of his music.

    Comment: Nasty Ain't it will forever be the dopest intro to an album. Dillas beat are holy shit good with keys and drum patterns blasting throughout the album. Black milk is also good in this album, lyrics are raw. Great album.

    Comment: Don't let the corny artist name or the boring album name scare you away. This is Detroit hip hop at it's finest. Insane bangers produced by Jay Dee, as well as production from Black Milk (amongst others), this is one of the few albums in 2007 which I play all of the time. Great flow and vibe throughout the album - this one is a winner for 2007.
