Bumpy Knuckles Crazy Like a Foxxx
- Words: Zoneil Maharaj
- Label: Fat Beats
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Fourteen years overdue, Crazy Like a Foxxx is newfound nostalgia for hardcore hip-hop purists. Shelved by MCA in 1994, what would have been the second full-length for Freddie Foxxx (a.k.a. Bumpy Knuckles) showcases his abrasive irreverence for MCs of the wack variety. Despite what Rakim is rumored to have said about Foxxx, the dude is ferocious. He manhandles the drum kicks and jeep bass provided by DITC producers Showbiz, Lord Finesse, and Buckwild. Written with his imprisoned friends in mind, Crazy also features self-empowering cuts “Amen” and “So Tough.” Sounding off from the Rotten Apple’s core, Foxxx’s time capsule also features legends Kool G Rap and a hungry young 2Pac at their rawest.
