iTunes Review

The two-man Brooklyn group Smif-N-Wessun debuted on Black Moon's landmark 1993 debut, Enta Da Stage, before dropping their own classic Dah Shinin' two years later. Key players in the Boot Camp Click collective, they've been at it ever since, overcoming changing tastes, inconsistent production, and name changes (they were known as Cocoa Brovaz for a while thanks to lawyers from a certain gun company). Despite the ups and downs, they've always maintained a hardcore following at home and overseas, earning lots of props for their 2011 effort Monumental with Pete Rock. While they've always been reggae fans and have injected some earlier material with a touch of the islands, on Born and Raised they embrace it fully, collaborating with Jahdan, Jr. Kelly, and Junior Reed on the single "Solid Ground." If you're looking for the murky beats and BK gun raps of their early days, you may be disappointed. But if you're down with the reggae, this is an excellent change of pace. It's a short but sweet gem from two of Bucktown's finest.

Rudeboy MCs Tek and Steele made their presence felt on the cuts "U da Man" and "Black Smif N' Wessun." In early 1994, the crew scored a massive underground hit with "Bucktown," a reference to their violence-plagued Bedford-Stuyvesant stomping grounds and "home of the original gun clappas." Their debut LP, Dah Shinin', followed soon thereafter, unleashing...
