Product Details
B-Legit, a.k.a The Savage, comin' straight out the Hillside with that Northern Cali Mobb sound, has been in the game for over 20 years. Before his rapping days, B-Legit was a hustler on the streets of Vallejo. He grew up in a single parent house surrounded by musical influences but still ran the streets. He was always tight with his kin folk and close friends which has continued even to today. He can always be caught loungin' with his cousins E-40, D-Shot and Suga-T. B-Legit and his cousins started in the rap game back in 1986. The four of them performed at a talent show under the name Most Valuable Players. After receiving an encouraging response, they decided to continue rapping and to take it to another level. They changed their name to The Click and recorded "The Less Side" in 1990. B-Legit and E-40 created Sick Wid It Records and Tapes and began pushing their wares to local listeners in California. They sold tapes out the back of their car and did all of their own promotion. The Click then released "Down and Dirty". Word-of-mouth spread quickly, and soon the Click was an underground favorite. Sick Wid It's clout increased after each release. B-Legit released "Tryin' to Get a Buck" in 1992. It too was an underground hit but still lacked the appeal to make it nationwide. In 1994, Jive picked up Sick Wid It to help with distribution. E-40's "In a Major Way" was the first release from the Sick Wid It/Jive camp and it went platinum. Suga T released "Paper Chasin' (4eva Hustlin')" on Jive as well, but was slept on by many people. And then in 1996 B-Legit dropped "The Hemp Museum". B-Legit spits major Game all over the album. He collaborated with Levitti, E-40, Kurupt (Tha Dogg Pound), C-Bo, Lil' Bruce, Darryl Hall of Hall & Oates, The Funk Mobb, Harm, D-Day and Big Bone. This album is the absolute bomb and it made B-Legit the star he is today. Skip ahead 10 years and a handful of releases later, B-Legit is back, and in no way is he a a rookie to this rap game having endured so much getting to this point. His new album "Hood Hustlin" is blowin' up and this brother is on the rise once again. He deserves major props for his effort in contributing to this ever changing game called Hip Hop.
The 'Hood Hustlin' mixtape is a prequel to the full length album coming soon...
