Reel Deal, Drippin Dope, Mob Records 1988

"Uhhh! We're ooozin! Drip Drip Drip Drippin Dope!" Oh man is that a great chorus. Dig Reel Deal, a three man crew from the Bronx. The tune opens with a siren letting you know it's time to "duck and cover" as these three MCs take individual turns on the mic spitting fire with youthful enthusiasm and clever lines... "If you were an Icy you still couldn't freeze me, boyeee!" Towards the end of the track these guys trade lyrics of fury in a tight back n forth manner while the music drips and oozes all over the joint.

This was a blind purchase and one that I was pleasantly surprised with. The only semi-recognizable name here was the production credit for Andre Booth. Andre did work for Sam records in the early 80s and even turned up on Big Daddy Kane's Taste of Chocolate LP. I don't recall ever seeing any other Mob Records releases other than this one. Rugged!
