P.H.A. – VLS and Samples

P.H.A. – Don’t Take Time b/w Absorbtion, I Don’t Know(I Can’t Say)

Not much is out there about this crew except for what’s written on the record label. Lyrics by Granz,Wise Kabar,and Lord. Production by Omne. Co-produced and cuts by J.C. Lincoln.From discogs,it looks like they had a promo sometime before this and a joint in 1999.

Don’t Take Time” is the A side. Omne loops up an ill sample from “Here And Now” by The Headhunters. Rhymes are decent on this,too. More smooth,intelligent type ish. Beatwise,the B side,”Absorbtion” might be the gem here .I’m NOT positive,but it sounds like he sampled the same song,”Rite of Spring“, that Large Pro used for “One + One” with Nas. Sounds like he put the note variations on the intro sample. But the piece that comes in at 00:54 seconds is what gives it replay value to me.

EDITED 12/13/09: I didn’t realize before but PHA’s other single was posted here, if your interested.
And more with their involvement here. And also, they’re apparently from Philly.
