This album may have put Houston on the map, but there were dope rap albums from Houston out before this one. Check out Royal Flush "Uh-Oh" from 1988 or the Def IV "Nice and Hard" album from early 1989. Both very dope when they dropped!

Sorry, I'm just now seeing this. Send me a message and we can talk about my old tapes. I need to dig them up and digitize them all, as I only did some in the early 2000's. I checked out the page from that link, and was surprised to see that MC DJ... See full review

Not sure where that info came from about the 100 copies, because I myself have like 5 copies, and I've sold like 10 copies or so, maybe more, in the last few years. I do believe there to be more than one pressing of the first pressing with two tracks,... See full review

She may have recorded it first in Marley's bedroom, but I stand by my words. The original version pressed on the vinyl for the first time was taken from a cassette tape recorded from the Mr. Magic show. The version that was put on the B-side of the... See full review

This record dropped in 1985. In addition to this record, the Super Lovers also appeared on the Hurby's Machine album "The House That Rap Built". And also, one of the rappers on this record is Playboy, aka Play from Kid 'N Play.

Pulled out my copies and sure enough, written in the dead wax on all of my copies is "Virtue 5/86" confirming what I said years ago, definitely 1986, and around 6 months AFTER "Success Is The Word" dropped. "Success Is The Word" is the first record... See full review

Wow what a garbage-ass bootleg! And really, it's all about the two "previously unreleased" instrumental versions. Because all the other tracks are the album versions that were probably ripped from the original CD's.

This record dropped later in 1987, and it's an answer to L.L. Cool J's record "I'm Bad". Listen to the bassline, it's stolen from L.L.'s record, and at the end of each verse, the emcee (Pinky D) raps "L.L. you're bad but you know I'm better". The D.J.... See full review

This was the song of the year for 1992 on Hot 97 in New York City. And in 1992 that's when they started transitioning from house and dance music to hip hop. With that being said, they got it right! This was one of my favorite dance records that year,... See full review
