Sicx & Brotha Lynch Hung - Nigga Deep (1998)


Nigga Deep is a collection of early Brotha Lynch Hung and Sicx demos recorded circa 1992 that was released on Siccmade in 1998. Sicx and Lynch Hung bridge the generation gap and firmly straddle a synthesis of flows on this compilation; they've got that crawling gangsta stalk in development, but aren't letting go of the Niggaz4Life-era N.W.A rhythm Dr. Dre and MC Ren made so popular for 1992. The lyrics, however, reach to completely new levels with satanism, god-hating, baby-killing, self-mutilation, and more running rampant on this collection. X-Raided may have beat this duo to the title of first genuine Sacramento psycho to be put on wax with his debut Psycho-Active, but I think this collection is even more ahead of its time and descriptive of what the 90s Sacramento scene was about. If you're familiar with later Lynch Hung, C-Bo, Doomsday Productions, or anything put out on Black Market Records or Siccmade Muzicc, definitely listen to the Nigga Deep collection because it's some horrorcore gold that holds up just as good, if not better, than a lot of formal albums.
