Da Beatminerz Fully Loaded w/ Statik
Finally an album that lives up to it's title! Da Beatminerz deliver the straight goods featuring rap aficionado's like KRS-One, Wordsworth, J-Live, Krumbsnatcha, Jean Grae, Mystic and many more. It's no surprise that the Minerz (Mr. Walt and DJ Evil Dee of Black Moon) come correct with "deep-in-the crates style beats" that actually work with the emcee, which is where so many compilations fail. Dirty, grimy, bass heavy beats is what the Minerz are known for, having produced for big players like Boot Camp Click, Eminem, M.O.P., De La Soul, the Pharcyde and Dilated Peoples. This album is laced with quality emcees that drop pretty dope verses over ill beats. The 13 solid tracks feature standout joints from Wordsworth, Jean Grae and the Last Emperor (with the Lloyd Parks-inspired "Mafia Don"). One of the dopest tracks comes from underrated Bay area emcee/songstress, Mystic, on "Pull Your Card," as she pulls the card out on fake thugs, riled up shit-talking drunkards and white boys who think they own hip-hop. Don't sleep. (Copter/Universal)
