Whoa, could this ever happen today? A â€˜radicalâ€™ pro-Black musical group on the cover of a mainstream magazine? This issue was obviously popular back in â€™92 because someone stole it from my dorm room. I had to purchase another copy from EBay last spring to post this but once again, I never got around to it until now. So this issue is a T.R.O.Y. blog exclusive. After re-reading it, I can see that it was probably stolen because of the Das Efx and Pete Rock & CL Smooth album reviews. If you werenâ€™t aware, those groups were on fire in â€™92 and the radio kept â€œThey Want Efxâ€ and â€œThey Reminisce Over Youâ€ on constant rotation. Looking back, did both of their albums deserve 4 mics, though? I also forgot that this issue had a small article discussing the death of Kid Hood from Tribe‘s â€œScenarioâ€ remix. I remember being pretty upset after first reading that back then. One verse and his career was over. If only that could have happened to Lil Wayne insteadâ€¦
