Album Review

By the time Sewaside saw the light of day, the public hadn't fully absorbed Das EFX's innovative debut, Dead Serious. The hardcore rap game had barely caught up with the brilliance of their rapid-fire vocal delivery and sample-laden beats. But then again, another crew from Staten Island emerged in 1993 and took the rap game by total storm, leaving the genius of Sewaside somewhat overshadowed by their dominance. However, this change in climate shouldn't overshadow Sewaside as a crucial record in the Das EFX canon. While the duo's methods of madness were slowly emulated by a large plethora of MCs, Das EFX stayed with the same effective blueprint laid down in Dead Serious. By maintaining this consistency, Sewaside lacks the punch in the gut that Dead Serious delivered, but it's still a solid record that completists and newfound fans will equally enjoy.

such a classic

i remember getting this album and immediately listening to it over and over and over. i haven't heard it in so long, it is so good to hear classic hip hop like das efx again. modern hip hop has nothing on the old stuff. "gimme dat micraphone" is one of my all time favs. well worth the money!

Awwww yeah!

Bout time they got this album here, looked around nobody had it digitally was going to break down and buy a hard copy, lulz. Great album from seriously underrated rappers...I would buy new rap if anyone of them could sling like this on the mic!


I refuse to pay for censored hip hop. Goes against everything hip hop is about! C'mon man

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. Krazy Drazyz (born Andre Weston; Teaneck, NJ) and Skoob (born Willie Hines) were...
