I'm sure you're familiar with MC Sway and DJ King Tech and their
nationally syndicated radio show, The Wake Up Show. Turn
on MTV and wait 30 minutes (if you can) and i'm sure Sway's mug
will pop up as he's a veejay/host of various shows on the channel.
He's hardly recognizable here without them big locks... check
that flat top he's sportin on the cover of this single.
Back in 91 the duo released their debut album Concrete Jungle
as Sway and King Tech after moving from their release as Flynamic
Force (a pretty rare slab o wax itself). The album's not bad and
it really displayed the creative production skills (and turntable
talents) of King Tech. Sway himself has a solid voice and is a
decent rapper. Noteworthy cuts are Rock Steady, In
Control, The Same Old Thang and Follow 4 Now.
The later of which was issued as a single with some pretty good
mixes but the real gem on this 12" is the smoking club mix
of Baddest Mutha On 2 Turntables. The LP cut is okay
but doesn't possess the energy of this mix. It's really a nice
cut n paste gem full of horsepower with tight rhymes and clever
samples. The beauty of this one is it's not that hard to find.
Note: Track 01 is the intro.
