Tony Touch The Piecemaker 2
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Koch
Before you dismiss all NYC mixtape DJs as fronting A&Rs with no skills, you'll have to reckon with Tony Touch. B-boy to the core, Toca came with a pleasant surprise on the original Piecemaker. Now, he picks up where that album left off, serving up an array of quality cuts. Sure, he's got some requisite "hot" guests, but Tony also brings Slick Rick, Dead Prez and Juju into the mix-not to mention featuring Large Professor, Pete Rock, and Masta Ace (go ahead and read that again). Most impressively, he's able to make it all work, showing equal comfort behind the boards and behind the mic. If you slept before, here's your chance to wake up.
