Jungles Of The East/ Lawtown
12" Vinyl Single Record
Boston rapper Scientifik recorded two albums in the 90s, "The Most Blunted" and "Criminal". Unfortunately "Criminal" was denied a proper domestic release due to industry politics and label bankruptcy. So for the last 12 years the record has lived on in the boom-bap afterlife of vinyl bootlegs, hissy dub cassettes, and low quality MP3s. This single however was kind of an underground hit at the time, boasting two East Cost anthems. "Jungles Of The East," produced by Scientifik and DJ Shame of The Vinyl Reanimators, flips a slick Jeru The Damaja sample as Scientifik reps from the buroughs of NYC, to the ATL to Florida and all the way back to his home, the slums of Lawrence, MA. Which is right where "Lawtown" comes in. Produced by Edo. G, the track is an early 90's representation of the tough city that would birth talents from Scientifik to Krumbsnatcha to Termanology. Each song expresses that moody, boom-bap hardcore rap sound that any genuine Hip Hop fan will appreciate and covet. This is vintage cerebral street music at it's best.
