Tribe Called Next
This is some 120 minutes
evening entertainment. Not only because this tape has
tons of exclusives, created solely for this tape, unreleased
stuff, freestyles, whatever. Naw, it has a "Rapordy"
skit, that is featured throughout the tape and that
mocks "Jeapordy" in a very, very funny way. Not just
because of the dope rework of the theme tune, it also
feature three very distinctive and different contestants
and the whole plot and progression of the skit is very
amusing. You will enjoy listening to this lounging on
your sofa, as well as playing it in the ride, on the
beach, wherever, whenever. Man, and that Delta sponsor
part is beyond believe funny, but let this be all that
is said about the skit.
Cause a mix tape is
not a mix tape without some music right? After the obligatory
intro, Next switches to a little classic in the form
of Tribe's "Excursions", he humbly renames "NEXTcursions".
Quite crudely he stops that track to go into the first
exclusive: a dope dramatic string beat (of unaccredited
source) with Kindred Minds feat. Exile busting rhymes,
until the beat switches to some threatening deep thump
monster. And then there's the thunderous "Militant
Raw" by Akrobatik, with it's staccato drums,
a dope hard banger. Fresh off the "Windows 98" DutchMassive
of Equilibrium contributes an unreleased "My
Own Shit", with funky drums, a bouncy and
sunny beat, that will be heard on many mixtapes to come
when it finally will be released. Then there's the 'back
in the days' part with tracks by Artifacts, O.C., House
Of Pain feat. Guru, The Beatnuts and Kool G Rap & DJ
Polo. Well, add to this freestyles by General Stoor
and Insomniac, tracks by J-Zone, Al-Shid and Huggy Bear,
Perfect Strangers, Sweden's Promoe, I.G. Off & Hazadous,
Set Camp, One Verse feat. Clokworx and a turntablism
effort by DJ Unknown & Mek, and we have only reached
the end of side one.
And the second site
is pretty much ridiculous with exclusives and starts
with shouts by Freestyle (Arsonists), Crazy Legs (RSC),
Bobitto and a bunch of others, as well as Del, who also
contributes the next track "Hoe".
This is followed by Louis Logic, Adam12 and Fizz One
spitting life to a Mr. Lif beat, God Complex reunite
for "Strontium 1999",
a dope science fiction cut in the tradition of the Rebel
Alliance. Then there's Binary Star doing "Reality
Check" and this track has got to be released
and not just remaining to be exclusively recorded for
this tape. This track is hot. Then there's the spaced
out bouncyness of Tranzcend leading up to another short
installment of classics featuring Super Lover Cee &
Casanova Rud, MC Shan and Big Daddy Kane. Porn Theatre
Ushers come back with an unreleased "Bug
Men", that's gonna be buggin' you, man. On
some sonic, cosmic tip are Polymorfik. And Akrobatik
is ending this side with "Vibes
And Lyrics". Once again add a turntablism
cut by The Technicians, contributions by Ghost of Red5,
JD aka Alien B-Boy, Shiz aka MindBlender, a T.S.S. posse
cut featuring Natural, AmsUno, Agent Tesseract and Vocab,
another cut by DJ Upperkut, Swollen Members, Obnoxious,
ChamPon, JDO on some "Next
Shit" and finally freestyles by Apathy and
Mr Lif. Wheew!
With this being more
a compilation than a turntable trickery mixed-tape,
this is nevertheless highly enjoyable, and this should
be out as an all formats release. But that's not botheringme
right now, cause the tape player just ate the tape,
gotta fix that....damn.
