The B.U.M.S.

You know, I don't really remember much about this album from The B.U.M.S. (an acronym for "Brothas Unda Madness"). If it hadn't been requested, it'd probably still be sitting in a shoebox right now (good call, Kev). Anyway, since I only remember two singles from the album getting play on the radio when I was younger (that would be the ultra tight "Take A Look Around" and "Elevation"), I don't really have much to say about it. I gave it a listen while I was ripping it and it's definitely on point. I'm not quite sure how this one fell between the cracks. D-Wyze and E-Vocalist are nice on the mic and don't quite come off as the typical Cali rapppers on their '95 debut. There's more of a east/west blend going on here. I wonder if they ever put out a second album? It'd be a shame if this is all they ever got a chance to show the public. I noticed that it's going for $55 over on, so even if I didn't like it, I'd still take great pleasure in cutting these vulture's sales. Enjoy...
