the slum brothers


"reggie reg, my style is mad fat,
plus i can make denzel look like craig mack,

i'm all that, when i rap to basslines and fat tracks,

the ni**ers are wack they need to step the f**k back"
yeah it's the slum brothers! nowadays most indy heads are aware of this crew from jersey with mc reggie reg aka reginald dempsey and his characteristical rhymestyle. unfortunately i once again do not have much background info on this crew.

interesting thing; besides the three releases most people heard of, there are three more records related to them. the first one is a 2nd press of the '96 12" stop fronting. this came out two years later in '98 on scientific recordings, which already released fool's paradise. note that the sides are switched on the rerelease.

then, there are two more releases by an mc reggie reg. apparently this guy is from jersey as well but somehow he has a different rhymestyle than the reggie reg we knew from the slum brothers. i only got the one release of the two and can't say i'm 100% sure that this is the same guy. i think that's lakim shabazz mentioned on the label as producer for "nj connection".

all things considered, i still stick to "regular niggers". i love that track since the day i first heard it.

Yo AG why you only have their singles? You dont have the album [The Slum Brothers Presents Jus' Regular Niggers: The Diary of a Porch Monkey]...hit me up if you dont have it...it seems like its very rare and people dont have it because fans only refer to the singles...it had lots of other songs...you dont have that 12''? my email is dredaman101@aim.com..its a slammin album...and i wanna pass the plate since its so rare :)
