Album Review

Rhino/Elektra Traditions' 2001 release The Very Best of Das EFX is an excellent summary of the duo's seminal recordings for Elektra. When they came crashing out in 1992 with Dead Serious, the group was a bold change, thanks to their revolutionary quick-fire, stuttering delivery. The record was hailed as a mini-masterpiece, but like a lot of rap crews, what was praised upon the debut became ignored by the third, often because the once-fresh style now seemed stale, even if it was their signature sound. And, while the quality of their recordings did dip somewhat after the first album, they still turned out fine recordings, as this collection proves. True, it does tilt toward the debut, with no less than seven selections from Dead Serious, but it also contains three cuts from Straight Up Sewaside and four from 1995's Hold It Down, ending with two tracks from their final Elektra album, 1998's Generation EFX. This winds up as an excellent summary, providing a huge portion of their greatest album, with cuts from the other albums that prove they hadn't lost their talents after the debut. And while Dead Serious remains a landmark, this may be the best choice for anybody indeed wanting to hear The Very Best of Das EFX.

Biography

Formed: 1991 in Petersburg, VA

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Das EFX's wildly playful, rapid-fire stuttering — dense with rhymes and nonsense words — was one of the most distinctive and influential lyrical styles in early-'90s hip-hop. While the duo completely rewrote the MC rule book, they themselves were increasingly pegged as a one-dimensional novelty the longer their career progressed, despite watching elements of their style creep into countless rappers' bags of tricks.
