Let's go for a bit of acid jazz for a Monday. If all you know of their Brand New Heavies is more successful later albums, then Heavy Rhyme Experience Vol. 1 will come as a very pleasant surprise. It certainly did to me when a friend introduced me to it a few years ago. Featuring collaborations with Black Sheep, Pharcyde and Gang Starr amongst others means it perhaps loses some of its Britishness that I'm sure UK mcs could have brought to it. Off the top of my head though, I can't think of any other US rappers meet UK jazzsters (or visa versa) works. Anyway, I kind of like this one today.
