Atlantic had an interesting, yet unsuccessful, stable of hip hop acts in the late 80s and early 90s. The Wise Guyz are one such an act. This Long Island group consisted of Extra Caliber, Stretch, Tron (The Ladies Tenderroni) and Big Ill. Riding the politically conscious bandwagon, the Wise Guyz put out this album of socially aware lyrics. While the album had it's share of duds it does posses a few nice ones and this track sure as hell slams! I think the phrase "rap attack" is exemplified by this knockout jam with lines like "treat you like some old Pumas and play you OUT!" DJ battle lines, anyone? You could probably slip into any warehouse and find one or two copies of this album.
