iTunes Review

Hard to believe it's already been a decade since UK label BBE (Barely Breaking Even) put out their exceptional Beat Generation series, highlighting hip-hip producer royalty like Pete Rock, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Marley Marl, and J Dilla. Though technically ten tracks, this is really a glorified single, featuring two tracks off 2001's excellent Petestrumentals release. "Nothin Lesser" showcases New York crew the Un, while the Placebo-sampling "Give It To Y'all" features Roc Marciano and Trife. Though far from household names (then or now), the MCs are solid on both joints, but it's the Soul Brother #1 who really shines, treating us to great beats loaded with his audio trademarks of smooth horns, dusty drums, and quality filter use.
