Forgotten albums: Session 4


And we’re back to 1996 again, lol, this time with Blahzay Blahzay. DJ PF Cuttin and MC Out Loud made a little noise earlier in 1995 with the single “Danger”, and who can forget that memorable chorus, with Jeru The Damaja mixed in by saying “when the East is in the house”, followed by “oh my God, DANGER!” Classic right there. They also followed this up with an equally classic part two version, which featured Smoothe Da Hustler and Trigga Tha Gambler, production by the one and only DJ Premier. And from there, that was pretty much it, which leads me to…..

Why I feel it’s forgotten
Just like I seem to type each time I discuss an album that was released in 1996, a stacked year when it came to hip hop releases, this album slipped under the radar, plus you can add in other factors such as a lack of promotion and buzz, and even though East Coast hip hop was still on fire at the time, not everything was in the spotlight.

Rating
About 4 stars. 

I’ve never owned this album, but I have heard it and it’s very good. The two “Danger” songs weren’t the only highlights on this album. I would welcome the album to my collection, but with it being out of print (and it has been for the longest time), the odds aren’t good at this point.

(Update: It has been added to my collection.)
