Description

Young MC wasn’t given props at the time and he wasn’t respected in the years following the release of his debut “Stone Cold Rhymin”, largely because he worked entirely in the pop-rap/crossover vein. All the same, that’s what’s great about his debut, since it’s exceptionally clever and effective, a wonderful combination of deft rhymes and skillful production. And there’s no discounting Matt Dike, Michael Ross, the Dust Brothers, and engineer Mario Caldato Jr. (the latter two names are members of the Beastie Boys’ inner circle), who make this record easily accessible, without a trace of guilt, even if it does sample from familiar sources. And, really, Young MC is a gifted rapper, spinning out rhymes with a deft touch and turning out rhymes much more clever than they should be. Yes, “Stone Cold Rhymin” is a product of its time, particularly in its sound and lyrical references, but divorced from the Bush era, it comes off as one of the catchiest, friendliest pop-rap records and it’s still an infectious party record years after its release.
