Larry Larr, Keep On Y'all, Ruff House Records 1991

We end the Journey with another Philly banger. Larry Larr was affiliated with the 3XDope Posse who put him on and produced his solo album Da Wizzard of Odds for Ruff House. I know some people who dis this album but I think it's actually not that bad. Sure there are some losers but there are some definite smokers with that classic Chuck Nice production. Neighborhood Puppet mows you over at high tempo with a little Fred Wesley horn pepper. Line 2 Line, Rhyme 4 Rhyme and Ya Know What I'm Sayin are two more smart ones. Jazz It Up takes on the Average White Bands' Love Your Life horns made almost untouchable by A Tribe Called Quest.

Those are good ones but the one that floats my cloud is Keep On Y'all. How can you go wrong with a Tramp beat sped up with fierce lines spit all over the place? EST pops in for the silly chorus, but the beat just smokes! The vinyl's a little hard to spot but the CD turns up for pennies...
