iTunes Review

Best known for his work as a member of The Artifacts (with Tame One and DJ Kaos) during the '90s, Newark emcee El Da Sensei has two legitimate classic singles on his resume: "Wrong Side of the Tracks" and "C'mon Wit Da Git Down." Though The Artifacts broke up in 1997, El has remained busy ever since, continuing to perform and releasing a steady stream of solid (if slept-on) new material, including Relax, Relate, Release, The Unusual, and Unheard Of. He's also been doing truly impressive collaborations with the Polish crew The Returners (Little and DJ Chwial), who produce every track here, giving El a lush backdrop of undeniably funky, thickly layered, scratch-laced beats befitting his golden-era pedigree. From the opening intro throughout 11 tracks, the B-boy vibe is in full effect, with a cacophony of banging drums, fluid bass lines, and bright horn loops perfectly complementing the reliably dope wordplay. Pretty much every jam on here's nice, though "Hard to Find," "Got Fire," and "It's Not That Way" are especially great.

If you like boom-bap hip-hop, scratch hooks & raw rhymes, this is for you. If you're missing that real hip-hop....get this, you won't be disappointed, there's not a weak track on here!!

Return of the boom bap

This album reminds me of a KRS One line 'return of the boom bap means just that/it means return of the real hard beats and real rap'. If you like your Hip hop uncut and pure, this is for you.

Years Active: '00s

El Da Sensei stepped onto the hip-hop scene as one half of the Newark, NJ, duo, the Artifacts. The Artifacts first rose to fame with the hit "Wrong Side of the Tracks." After El Da Sensei and his partner Tame-One sent a rough demo to Bobbito the Barber at WKCR in New York, the group was signed to Big Beat/Atlantic Records. They released their debut album, Between a Rock & a Hard Place, in 1994 with "Wrong Side of the Tracks" as the lead single and video. After that initial hit, the Artifacts splashed...
