Shadz Of Lingo – A View To A Kill

Atlanta’s Shadz Of Lingo first debuted on Erick Sermon’s debut solo album No Pressure on the track “Lil Crazy” back in 1993,DJ Rocco and MC’s Kolorado and Lingo first met in 1986 at a Richmond, VA, High School.

In 1991 they all moved to Atlanta and began recording, A View To A Kill, released in 1994 was their only album that had a line up of dope producers behind the boards, Erick Sermon produced and appeared on “Mad Flavaz” (also released as a single) while Diamond D laced the Shadz with four ill tracks, “Ill & Get Clowned” which featured a lovely jazz horn sample, deep bassline and the infamous Skull Snaps drums, “Different Stylez” sampled Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam” which was made famous by Large Professor for Main Source’s “Just Hanging Out”, “Think I Give A Fuck” with it’s ill Eddie Harris sample and Lou Donaldson drums and “Don’t Test Da Skillz” which sampled ESG’s “UFO” and Jack Bruce’s “Sam Enchanted Dick”,(also used by Showbiz) Diamond D was definitely the production highlight on the album but Madness 4 Real’s “View To A Kill” was dope and had a Cypress Hill vibe and his funk laced “I Step 2 U Den” was good as well.

Dallas Austin produces the hard “Wherez Da Steel?”, which is not bad but his later effort “Always Stylin” is better,
A View To A Kill is not a classic or a lost album, but it’s a great golden age Hip Hop album, that will keep the head nodding and make the listener smile.

    I have to disagree on this one… A View To A Kill was def classic…it was just obscure. ATL Hip Hop was just coming into its own around that time…everyone was sounding like N.Y.C niggaz and they were one of the first (not saying they were the first, just one group in a handful) acts to really develop their own sound even with N.Y.C catz like Diamond and Sermon doing their beats.

    Their shit is obscure in the sense that it never really caught on in ATL or in NY…hell I only happened to know about them when I caught one of their vidz on Rap City (R.I.P.); Kinda like how Rumpletilskinz never caught on in N.Y.C or anywhere else…hell their shit is even MORE obscure than Shadz…I can't find that CD anywhere (help!)…..
