DJ JS-1 Ground Material
- Words: DJ Anna
- Label: Yosumi
In a world of many mediocre hip-hop compilations and producer albums featuring a million guest emcees, this album really stands out from the rest. Don't let the horrendous cover design fool ya-this LP is action-packed front to back. Underground stars (Ill Bill, Royce 5'9", Evidence) and Golden Era legends (Special Ed, Kool G Rap, Masta Ace) bless the microphone, and JS-1 comes with nothing but solid production with the help of partner Dub-L. Highlights include Percee P's trademark lackadaisical rhymes on "Unstoppable" and Breez Evahflowin' and C Rayz Walz's one-two punch on "Drug In My Veins." Big Daddy Kane reinstates his reign with the classic verse he drops on "Puttin In Work." And through out it all, JS-1's cuts and scratches are impeccable, exhibiting that this veteran turntablist is still at the top of his game.
