Dr. Oop Capone and the Black Love Crew Mad Hueman Disease
- Words: Eric K. Arnold
- Label: Black Love
If you're down with the LA underground hip-hop scene, you already know that Dr. Oop is one of its most talented proponents. If you've been sleeping, here's your wake-up call. Mad Hueman Disease's Afro-futurist b-boy jams might earn the backpack tag, but the Black Love crew shows there's no need to be ashamed of that. There is indeed a method to the Good Doctor's madness, one that involves basement beats, sci-fi skits and brain-lifting lyrics. Rhymes like who wanna screw with the ganja guru/bumpin "Black Uhuru?" might be battle-worthy, but should be taken tongue-in-cheek. Oop might go upside your head, but he ain't hurting nobody.
