The Four Bad Brothers From The Northwest

Sureshotsingles Vol. 1

Seattle hip hop godheads Source of Labor dropped this vinyl debut on their own Jasiri Media Group label back in 1995. Emcees Blahzay Blah and Word Sayer come with the lyrical consciousness, while producers Negus I and Kamikaze provide some classic rhythm to rhyme over. Comparing this early release to SOL's later work, it's a shame that Blahzay didn't stay on, as Word Sayer's dense and crowded delivery worked well as a contrast to his smooth and even style. Jasiri family members Kylea (of Beyond Reality), and Felicia Loud (currently of Black Stax) join in on vocal duties, with beats provided on "Come With Me" by producer extraordinaire Vitamin D.
