Let’s Take It Back: Chief Rocka

You can’t even begin to imagine how hype I got when this video would come on. Wasn’t feeling their first single, “Funky Child” much(DoItAll rapping in diapers in the video just didn’t do it for me) but when the Lord of the Underground made “Chief Rocka” their second single, I remember seeing it for the first time, pooled up $10 and bought the tape that very day. The album was pretty decent. “Here Come The Lords” and “Lord Jazz Hit Me One Time” were dope. The rest of the tape kinda sucked.

    Marly Marl hit out the park with this one. The whole jazz loop to the classic lyrics this one was mos def a banger.

  2. Jero Says:

    Yeah he did. His protege, K-Def shined on his own as well on production on this album.

    Did anyone from the east in the early 90’s NOT use jazz loops and samples? Jazz was to early 90’s east coast hip hop, like Funk was to the west.
