Between A Rock And A Hard Place (Explicit)
Released: Oct 1994
Label: Big Beat Records
Though they never quite got the mainstream recognition they deserved, New Jersey duo the Artifacts (El Da Sensei and Tame One) put out some very dope records in the mid-1990s. On this stellar debut, they mix thumping, loop-driven production with clever rhymes about graffiti and wack emcee smashing. "Wrong Side of Da Tracks" and "C'mon Wit Da Git Down" are both classics.
