Charizma & Peanut Butter Wolf Big Shots
- Words: Ross Hogg
- Label: Stones Throw
Only the good die young. When a bullet cut 20-year old Charizma's life short in December of 1993, it felled one of hip-hop's brightest talents. On this 15-song collection (recorded from 1991 to 1993), Charizma and Peanut Butter Wolf sound like the West Coast chapter of the Native Tongues. Charizma's voice brims with eagerness, enthusiasm and earnestness; Wolf's textured, jazzy beats epitomize boom bap and are a sign of great things to come. Charizma deals with topics from drinking apple juice and talking to girls to battling MCs and dissing R&B (remember when rappers hated the smooth shit?). Listening to this album might just make you fall in love with hip-hop all over again.
