For those of you that frequent the forum, you will undoubtedly have noticed the “Illest EPs Ever” thread that’s been ongoing for the past month or so. Too many dope EPs to name have been uploaded by numerous forum members.
One of the best EPs to be uploaded, in my humble opinion, is King Sun’s “Strictly Ghetto” EP. Released in 1994 on Cold Chillin’ Records, one look at the cover tells you this is a different King Sun than the one you remember from “Righteous But Ruthless.” Sun-D Moet traded in his kufi for a Carhartt jacket, and forging a harder-edged street-level experience for the listener. If you are a fan of the TROY blog, I guarantee you will love this record. The beats are top notch (I’m not sure who helmed the boards, as a Google search proves fruitless) and Sun definitely stepped up his lyrical game.
Unfortunately, the EP seemed to get lost in the decline and eventual demise of Cold Chillin’ Records shortly after it’s release. It’s currently out of print, but you can get a CD copy on Amazon for under $100…you know, if paying exorbitant prices for obscure early 90’s rap records is your thing.
Enjoy this dope little slice of ’94, courtesy of Echo Leader & the TROY blog.
