Souls Of Mischief - 93 Til Infinity (1993)


This is the alternative bay area scene. Souls Of Mischief are a subdivision of the wacky Heiroglyphics group where Del Tha Funkee Homosapien makes (or made) his home. I'm pretty sure this particular subgroup hit wax first and their -mischievous- youth is what makes 93 Til happen. Jazz basslines are whipped into astonishing shape with the teenage shithead rappers bragging and boasting in a hilarious yet slick as hell way. The sampling is done well and all of the looping, echoes, and interchanges add to the dark fluttery bounce of the rappers. Can I assume everyone's heard Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde when I say this is just a more shadowy version of that? A real phonky bay area/alternative hip hop/West coast essential.
