Thanks to the chroniclers over at Ghetto Tyylit who generously posted up an old Cuf tape, I dug this up out of the stacks and have had it spinning on the turntable on a daily basis. This EP from '98 is one of my favorite records. The Cuf are Sacramento legends, with their hold-steady lyrical delivery and dusty production. Nothing flashy or showy here, this is just solid hip hop on all levels. They are as essential to underground Cali hip hop as anything from the Bay or LA, and deserve to be recognized as such. A whole bunch of Living Legends guest on one track.
