have to admit I was a little disappointed when DJ Ivory dropped
Makeba and Skratch's Ain't It Funky single on his very
nice Hear No Evil mix CD. I had initially planned to use that
one on this mix… oh well… If any one knows the story behind
these guys, please let me know. I know in addition to the aforementioned
single they put out one album on the small Nuff Said label.
The album has some cuts that are just as raw as that first single
and this is definitely one of them. Makeba and Skratch (and
Lyn Collins) move the crowd at full speed while eatin' up "the
suckas" and disgarding "the candy rappers" (perfect for Fat
Tapes' visual theme, eh?). There definitely is some good
chemistry going on here. Get out your miner's hard hat cuz you're
gonna have to go deep for these guys.
