As another prodigy of Brotha Lynch Hung, Fig Naytion does a nice job with his freshman album. Although he is not the epitome of a skilled lyricist, his rhymes fit quite well with the layed back west coast beats. Phonk Beta and Brotha Lynch don't dissapoint on the production either.

Naytionz Capitol

Likwit Crew

Tash, a.k.a. Catash- trophe, proves he means business with his solo appearance Rap Life which hit the scene in 1999. Being an Alkoholiks fan for a long time now, I had high expect- ations for Tash's first solo release. To say the least, I was not let down.

With appearances from DPG's Kurupt, Wu-Tang's Raekwon, all the way to a few words from hip hop legend Ice-T, Rap Life showcases Tash's skills in the fullest.

So for any fan of the Liks, Rap Life would be a great addition to your collection, don't sleep on it.

Graveyard Soldjas

Graveyard Soldjas established themselves early on in the southern rap scene. After their poorly distributed albums "Day of Execution" and "Cut Throat City" were released, they were voted by Rap Pages as one of the top 5 acts in Louisiana.

Cash Money's Juvenile lent a helping hand by producing several tracks and appearing on their next album, "3 Time Losers".

After working with a multi-platinum artist they wanted to represent New Orleans to the fullest. GYS hopes their efforts will help bridge the sound in the "big easy".

Cut Throat City

This shit is on, I got love for the blocc

After hearing the Doc for the first time on Brotha Lynch's Season of Siccness album, I knew he had talent. Little did I know that I would be blown away by the overall sound and delivery of Setripn' Bloccstyle. However, some of his later release would not live up to this masterpiece debut.

Even though this may never get the recognition it deserves, it still holds it's own as a mid 90s, west coast classic.
