"Superman" Jay Harrison with his brother "Shockin'" Shaun Harrison
and their cousin, beat-box maniac Jacques "Jock" Harrison, put
forth one of the illest Warlock releases from the mid 80s. Along
with Krown Ruler's Paper Chase, Weightless is
also one of the "harder" albums from Warlock that comes
to mind. This family affair laced us with incredibly powerful
cuts like Feed Us The Beat, Rip the Cut and
the track featured here, ILL. A personal favorite from
the album, ILL features all the qualities that make the
early Skinny boys shit... well, ILL. Strong rhymes, scratches
and mouth beats to boot. Weightless sold a fair amount
for such a hard album to track down but it's totally worth the
The Skinny Boys moved on to Jive to record their follow up Skinny
and Proud and then Skinny (They Can't Get Enough).
Neither possessed the raw energy of Weightless and offered
spotty results. However they're worth checking out if only for
some of the production collabs with the likes of Chuck Chill Out
and Flavor Flav.
Note: Track 01 is the intro.
