ghetto concept is one of those groups that appeared in the mid-90s and gave canadians hope about our hip-hop scene. shit, these guys were good. really good. first they dropped a 12″ called “certified,” (i’ll get that up here eventually), but really, in my opinion, made a bigger impact with “e-z on the motion,” a smoothed out vibe with hints of reggae inflection, jazzy, but still street. a great balance. after this song they began what would become a steady decline into making progressively worse music over the years, embracing every rap cliche that came along in an effort to achieve mainstream success. no such luck. too bad, it was just too much

    Another classic. I have this on CDS with the exact same track listing. Unfortunately could not get a hold of a wax copy. Good up.

    PS – I saw them perform this LIVE in the summer of ’95 in Regina as a part of Much Music’s Hip Hop Explosion Tour. They were joined by K-os (musical essence) and Rascalz (really livin). In addition Frek Sho/Twisted Spirits came out to open.
