February 95 review of Smif N Wessun first album by one Joe Charles. You think the rating is a bit low ? Well, so did their label. Just after is a letter they send to the magazine to complain !

December 8, 2008

I’ve been doing this blog for two years now, and I just realize that I haven’t posted the Chronic review from The Source yet. The review was written by Matty c, but for some reason was signed by The Mind Squad, the collective name used by the staff writers. Published in february 1993.

Classic reviews : Reasonable Doubt in The Source (1996)

December 2, 2008

From the August 1996 issue of the Source, a review of Jay Z’s first full length, written by Charlie Braxton.  Not on the album, but on mp3 here, the original 12” version of Dead President with different lyrics.

Also, maybe you don’t know but we are selling some of our doubles from the record collection HERE, including the Reasonable Doubt LP and a sealed copy of Dead Presidents. You should buy some, really !
