The IL state represent! Chicago had a rich hip hop heritage long
before Common and this is definitely one of its shining moments
(albeit an obscure one). Ruthless Rod & MC Dollar blow up
the spot with their 1989 Banshee Records release Loud As A
Banshee. This 12" gives us the blaster, In The Groove,
which you will remember hearing part of on DJ Shadow's Diminishing
Returns mix. Here's the entire song with all it's hard rhymes,
bold choppy drums and fresh DJ work by DJ Fellow-Rock. Talk about
raw? This track just wrings you out in all the right places (insert
Ozzy screamin "Oh Lord yeah!"). I don't know much regarding
the history of this group other than Banshee was a local Chi-town
label. Stay tuned to track 9 for more...
Note: Track 01 is the intro.
