About Raw Fusion

Raw Fusion was a low-key Digital Underground side project driven by that group's Money-B. 1991's Live From the Styleetron, the group's first album, featured cameos from 2Pac, Shock-G, and Saafir, and it broke away from Digital Underground's proclivity for Parliament/Funkadelic-derived goofiness with production values that were closer to the Jungle Brothers/A Tribe Called Quest end of the spectrum, with liberal dashes of reggae shadings (dub, dancehall, roots). Featuring cuts like "Don't Test" and the jheri-curl send-up "Ah Nah Go Drip," the album stayed in the underground but proved to be a strong full-length. Three years passed before the follow-up, Hoochiefied Funk. The project presumably ended after that, with Money-B delivering a various-artists comp and a solo album before the end of the '90s; both releases were through Bobby Beat. ~ Andy Kellman
