The Stop

"I spit that uptown-body-rock-rolley-hop, and will a nigga ever shut me down? prolly not. Cause ever since I was a young lad I crushed emcees, kickin' ass takin' names at the trolley stop."

Some of you may recognize those faces above, yes they are and of the Black Eyed Peas. Surprised? Well this is Black Eyed Peas before they recruited Taboo and Fergie, and way before they crossed over to the pop section of the record store. This was supposed to be their debut album, but the project was set aside after Eazy-E's death (who produced a couple of the tracks). The album has a style very reminiscent of The Pharcyde. They have a very quirky, funky, and jazzy style. I just downloaded this rare album, so I suggest you do the same.

Get It!
