Various Artists-The Hill Thatâ€™s Real (1992)
1992 was easily one of the dopest years in Hip Hop history, it was a time of Timberlands, polos, hoodies, and vast amounts of creativity, lyrical skills and fat beats as far as rap music was concerned, it was also the year the infamous Lil Fame (aka Fizzy Womack) of the Mash Out Posse, first recorded to wax on the The Hill Thatâ€™s Real compilation, an album that celebrated the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, New York.
Lil Fame kicked the album off with the raw â€˜Bring The Ruckusâ€™ and also supplied his vocal talents to â€™Neighborhood Hoodâ€™ and â€˜The Hill Thatâ€™s Realâ€™, as well as appearing on the â€˜Crew Full Of Shortiesâ€™ cut and overseeing the whole album.
Other key tracks were the ASAP tracks â€˜Wrek The Artâ€™ and â€˜Itâ€™s On Youâ€™ with both tracks displaying hardcore jazz loops and fat drums, in fact most of the album is full of deep basslines, hard drums and dope loops supplied by producer Silver D.
Big Ken is a hardcore chick going for hers on â€˜4 Star Bitchâ€™ and the sharp tongued â€˜All About The Pussyâ€˜, both are dope cuts, but why is she called Big Ken?.
411 (another female) wrecks â€˜Exit 21 Southâ€™ with adlibs from what sounds like Positive K (Iâ€™m not sure if itâ€™s him though) and the album ends with Big Posseâ€™s New York City Drive Byâ€™, so in essence, this is a dope album and worth checking for early Lilâ€™ Fame recordings and for those that enjoy rugged Brooklyn Hip Hop. Brrrrrraaaaaappppp
