Classic 1824 / RXC

In the ’90s, it’s no secret that there was a greater prominence of the cliques, posses, crews, and clans.  It was an era in which creative mind-blowing lyrics were the sole option for an artist to earn the props and respect of their peers.  That said, what’s better than having several lyricists spitting darts in 8 or 16 bar verses, back-to-back-to-back-to… you get the point.  These weren’t commercial friendly collaborative efforts.  There were no sing-a-long hooks, or kindergarten melodies.

At the time, the hip-hop scene in Pittsburgh wasn’t much different in this regard.  You had several groups putting their stamp on the local scene.  The early ’90s included Mel Man’s Hardcore Crew, Funky to da Third, PensoulzInAKup, transitioning into the mid ’90s which gave way to the Massive – a crew that later split in two with Strict Flow and RXC.  These are only a few of the crews that were making waves in the city, as well as nationally, at the time.

This post is dedicated to the artistic musical craftings of RXC, an acronym for Reality Unknown Complex.  The crew has also been recognized as Classic 1824, 1824 being a numerical symbolism of the letters R-X. Original members of the hip-hop group include C.I., Shamir Shine, Knowledge Build, Justice, Martial Ife, and Amaretto, while others that have been or continue to be a part are Iasia, Gemstarr, Solar Magnetic, Sha-King (fka Reason), Nabri Savior, Living Proofe, and Gneticz.  For a greater look into the crew and the Pittsburgh hip-hop scene at this time, refer to Part One of the video interview with C.I. located at the end of this post.

The following are the first three releases to come from the Classic 1824 / RXC camp.  Future posts will include solo releases from Reason/Sha-King, Nabri Savior, Gneticz, and a variety of obscure radio appearances and freestyle sessions.  Feedback is appreciated!

    Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

    Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

    Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

    One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

    It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

    The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on ‘some’ of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

    If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see ‘results not typical’ printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don’t expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

    Wouldn’t it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.
