is another one of those Atlantic acts that I described from
the previous track. I remember back in the day when their single
Livin Like A Troopa dropped. It even had a pretty cool
video that ran on BET occasionally. They were visually presented
with more of a street edge in the video than displayed on the
jacket cover (Looks like they got the master key to the girls
locker room or something). Greysun and Jaysun had a similar
verbal style to EPMD (Erick Sermon specifically) and could have
easily assimilated into the Hit Squad posse. Hard as They
Come showcases Greyson's cool monotone delivery over JB's
Cold Sweat complete with Jimmy Nolen's guitar stabs.
This album only has a couple of good tracks… basically the aforementioned
Livin Like A Trooper and Hard as They Come. Slick
Rick completeists will wanna get this for his guest spot on
Get Bizzy, which ain't too bad but Rick's done better.
You should be able to dig this one out of a warehouse or cut
