The Coup – Kill My Landlord (1993)

The Coup - Kill My Landlord

The Coup is a political rap group dwelling on serious topics such as capitalism or police brutality. The leading MC Boots Riley has a smooth and relaxed voice – but a great flow at the same time. It’s the perfect addition to the very fresh & funky sound underlying this record. Released on the legendary label Wild Pitch Records it’s easy to get today. What more can I say? Dig it!

Main Source - Breaking Atoms

One of the most influential East Coast albums of the early 90’s. The production stands out with its original use of jazz and soul samples. Released on Wild Pitch Records the album was out of print for many years but is now available again so get it if you ain’t got it! As a side note: Nas made his first appearance on the track “Live at the barbeque”.
