Digital Rewind: Kid Tsunami – The Chase

Kid-TsuFind a loop, recruit a classic east coast emcee, have said emcee drop your name on the track and throw some scratches on for good measure. Rinse. Repeat. This basically sums up “The Chase.” Simple yet very effective. Brought to you by the good folks over at Headbop Music this is just some good old fashioned boom-bap with no additives or preservatives. What it does bring is a very nice roster with half the Juice Crew, the Crooklyn Dodgers, Organized Konfusion (separately but still), KRS, AG, Kool Keith, Sean P, J-Live and a few others all representing. “The Chase” tracklisting reads like a late 80s / early 90’s hip hop reunion and has to refer to the efforts of actually getting all of these cats to lay tracks on the album. Anyways, even with half of the vets past their prime you get a solid LP with standouts including an ill posse cut (“The Chase feat. Buckshot, Chubb Rock, Jeru & Pharoahe Monch”), some dope storytelling by Masta Ace on “TwoThousand40”, some Trophies level O.C. on “Catch Wreck” and Bahamadia straight spitting on “Authentic”.
