Single Series: Hard 2 Obtain

Hard 2 Obtain was a hip hop group from Long Island, consisting of 2 MC’s (Taste and DL) and DJ Six Seven. They released only one album, Ism & Blues on Atlantic. The album was followed with 3 singles which you can download below.

Album itself is solid, some will say it’s underrated, other will say it’s a hidden gem. I share all of positive thoughts because I personally like this album a lot.

Production was entrusted to Stimulated Dummies, except 2 tracks which were handled by DJ Nastee. The group just disappeared after this album.

      Thanks for checking in! I still bump joints from that album from time to time, especially “LI Groove,” and “Bust Me Down” and the joint wit the Artifacts. And some of the b-side vinyl as well.

      Taste, Bobbito played a demo in like 93-94 of a song with a jazzy slow beat and Six Sev rhymed on it also….. i had it on a tape back then but over time lost it, do you remember what i’m talking about? Oh and by the way you guys were very dope… one of my fav albums of 94

    Pretty dope find. Stimulated Dummies are often overlooked by many heads. They have made some great joints over the years.
