Product Details
Combining conscientious lyrics with scratching and top-notch production, Key-Kool & DJ Rhettmatic remind us it takes combined chemistry to create a classic, with the re-issue of their 1995 masterpiece Kozmonautz. Each of these cats' hip-hop resumes reads longer than Suge Knight's rap sheet, and along with extensive touring in America and over-seas, has gained this duo recognition worldwide. One of the founding members of the World Famous Beat Junkies, Rhettmatic is a West Coast DMC champion as a solo battle DJ, and along with the Beat Junkies, holds the title to 2 ITF Team World Champion titles. In addition, his mix CD World Famous Beat Junkies Vol. 2 has gained Rhettmatic major props throughout the hip-hop nation. On the emcee side of the equation, Key-Kool is so lyrically on-point that his commentary in the song "Reconcentrated," in which he discusses the incarceration of the Japenese in World War II, has been incorporated into the curriculums at big-name universities such as NYU, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Loyola University Chicago, Cal Poly Pomona, UC Irvine, and UC Davis. To add to Kozmonautz credentials the song "E=MC5" featuring LMNO, Ras Kass, Vooodu, and Meen Green was dubbed "an underground hip-hop classic," by The Source back in February of '96 (before the magazine lost ALL credibility). On a personal note, I believe this album to be a necessary reminder of the energy hip-hop used to have. I'm talking about back when emcees could be funny and witty simultaneously, while rapping over beats laced with scratching by DJ's like Rhettmatic. The two are currently in the studio working on the follow up and although Kozmonautz will undoubtedly be a beast to beat, I can't wait to see what these two Visionaries come up with.
