labtekwon - the ghetto gospel ep


right, baltimore again!

This is the debut ep of labtekwon aka omar akbar. this came out in '93 on black owned records and has six productions from '92/'93 on it.

"I made my first record in 1993, the Ghetto Gospel EP. It was released on Black Owned Records. 6 songs, 23 styles. I recorded the pre-production at Scotty B's studio in 1992."

i have to admit, this record was a real random buy a few years back. but while listening to this ep again and again, it became a real grower– for me at least. the kick off with "quiet storm" is perfect and at the same time my personal favorite followed by "csd". all of these tracks come rugged and rough and have a funky note as well. a perfect mix for my gusto. make sure to check this holy grail out!



LABTEKWON "THE GHETTO GOSPEL EP" '93

1. QUIET STORM
2. PHAROAH OF THE KAYO
3. HARD 2 DA CORP
4. COPTIC JIHAD
5. CSD
6. CHOCOLATE CHIP





you also need to check out the other stuff he released. for example the 12" as csd, several cd-r only releases or the latest project called 410 pharaohs.

enjoy!

akutt
