Skully Champion Sounds
- Words: Rob Riddle
- Label: DMC
Skully, current DMC UK champion and DMC World runner- up, pulls through with an excellent CD featuring original raps over some new and recycled rhythms; and, of course, amazing turntable work. Okay, sometimes the words do border on the clich?, but the attitude consistently remains heavy-hitting and precise. My favorite tracks include "Components of Competition," with Unleashed by Science on the mic as Skully superbly drops lyrical samples; Royalty with Mikey Starr up on Gang Starr's "Check the Technique" for "Word Play;" and Joe Buhdha and Terrafirma on "B 4 U Die." The mix CD approach works well for this project too-an entertaining, fluid flow highlighting both mic and vinyl skills.
