KRS-One, Scott La Rock and B-Boy Records

By Hua Hsu, Contributor

Before they were legends, they were just two dejected young men trying to get back to the Bronx. In 1986, nobody was checking for Boogie Down Productions, another of the seemingly endless queue of aspiring would-be rappers and party-animators who blanketed New York City. KRS-One and DJ Scott La Rock - names that would become part of hip-hop history by year's end - were just two guys named Kris Parker and Scott Sterling. Kris was the… more »

The Outer Limits: Kool Keith and the Ultramagnetic MCs

By Hua Hsu, Contributor

It was 1988 and space was, indeed, the final frontier. A brief history of rap until that moment might have read like this: first they toasted, then they shouted. Next came the couplets and syllables, uttered coolly, so as not to break a sweat. And then crash-landed the Ultramagnetic MCs - a band of brothers from another planet who came to reset the system. Why rhyme when you could fly in style? High school friends Kool… more »

They Say All Music Guide

At 39 years of age, veteran rap producer Marley Marl’s return to recording came as part of the London-based BBE (Barely Breaking Even) label’s Beat Generation series. The series was an attempt to reclaim hip-hop from the clutches of overexposure. While Marl hadn’t really recorded a true full-length album since his In Control, Vol. 2 in 1991, he remained a fixture in the hip-hop community (and influence on producers like Pete Rock and Jay Dee), producing tracks throughout the ’90s for artists such as Capone-N-Noreaga, Rakim, and K Def & Larry O. Marl was directly responsible for putting together the Juice Crew, one of hip-hop’s all-time elite teams that included the likes of Roxanne Shante, MC Shan, Big Daddy Kane, Masta Ace, and Biz Markie. The Juice Crew’s late-’80s battle for rap supremacy with KRS-One and Boogie Down Productions remains one of the most compelling legends of rap lore. Re-Entry’s against-the-grain format just might have won over a few young undergrounders, but it is not extraordinary by any stretch. One would have thought that a super-producer of Marl’s caliber would fetch a number of name MCs; this is unfortunately not the case, with the exception of Big Daddy Kane, Capone, and a couple of talented undergrounders. Some of the old Marl magic does resurface on the thuggish “What U Hold Down,” and the maestro even branches out on the jazz-funk exploration “Hummin’,” which features hip-hop forefather Roy Ayers. Many of the cuts here are just instrumentals that surely smack of filler, but Re-Entry certainly has its moments — moments that might just have some listeners reminiscing back to the Juice Crew era. – M.F.
