3rd Bass – The Cactus Album (1989)

3rd Bass - The Cactus Album

In 1989, a new white Hip Hop group was signed to Def Jam after the Beastie Boys left the label. At thirst they called themselves “3 The Hard Way” but during the course of recording the album they changed their name. A very fresh debut for 1989. Don’t miss out on this one.

3rd Bass – Derelicts of Dialect (1991)

3rd Bass - Derelicts of Dialect

Two white rappers & a black DJ? That gotta be whack, right? Hell no! As their successful debut “The Cactus Album” their second real release is a long album with some skits that draw direct influences to De la Soul’s debut “3 Feet High & Rising”. Overall it’s very consistent and still sounds fresh today. Not only the rapping is great but most of all the production is outstanding and ahead of its time.
