Class A Felony…

Class A Felony-Class A Felony (1993)
Mercury Recordings

Now here is an album that really fits under the obscure banner, Class A Felony was a New York duo made up of DJ Stitches and the late Edward Dumar Israel aka Lord Dumar, who sadly passed away before the album was released, Class A Felony was their only album and had contributions by great producers like DJ Mark The 45 King (“Hyped Up”, Black Rain”) and Diamond D (“I Can’t Take No More”), which features Lakim Shabazz but oddly no Lord Dumar?.

Class A Felony was a decent album that relied on quirky (peep the warped funk of “Time To Make The Doughnuts”) and familiar samples and fat drum loops, alongside Lord Dumar’s gruff vocal tone which is sometimes reminiscent of King Sun.

The classic Warriors film gets sampled on “Warriors Come Out To Play” and the timeless Bohannon “Save Their Souls” gets flipped on “I’m No The Herb You’re Lookin’ 4” , James Brown’s “Papa Don’t Take No Mess” gets a workout on the dope “Papa Don’t Play” and a heavy dub sample is used on “Lyrical Bloodbath” while DJ Stitches get his time to display his skills and finesse on the 1’s and 2’s on “Electricity”.

The hilarious and late comedian Robin Harris is sampled on “I Got A Warrant” and is a great tale of Dumar being on the run,Lord Dumar also runs a sinister tale on “The Night Stalker” and like Guru once said It’s mostly the voice and Dumar does indeed have a dope voice and rides beats effortlessly.

I wouldn’t go as far as to call the album a classic, but it’s an ill, lost album that should be heard.

Props to godmc for the hook-up.
