Presto And Lowd Back In 92
- Words: Ross Hogg
- Label: Puma Strut
Producer Presto and MC Lowd kick it middle school all the way on this one, an ode to the year 1992. Lowd name-drops A Tribe Called Quest, Wu Tang, Beatnuts and damn near every other underground act of the day over backpack-friendly beats from Presto and remixers Beathoven and Bobby Boucher. The end result is less an homage and more the musical equivalent of a throwback jersey: It's supposed to give off an air of "I was there" credibility, but it doesn't ring true.
