us plus one

us plus one on crates of ag this weekend.

in 1994 swirl wind recordings dropped the debut 12" by a crew out of bushwick (i believe) called us plus one. on the "dear jenny" recording you'll find three tracks with productions by gordon ancis & true da grynch of the evil twins.

one year later the same label dropped the follow up. "gettin lyrical" & "poets get lyrical" again were produced by true da grynch. but this time there were scratches by mister tony touch.

another year passed and in 1996 the (to my knowledge) last record "murder me" got released.

in '97 swirl wind dropped a 12" by tony tone. these are the only four records i know by this label.

there's not much more i know about these cats- help a brother out!

Us Plus One was definitely from Bushwick. Rebel Rhyme of Dysfunkshunal Fam gives them and other Bushwick groups a shout out on "set it off".
