Label: Roadrunner Records
This is a crucial early underground record and the first dispatch from rap's favorite extraterrestrial satirist, Kool Keith. The interplay between Keith and Ced Gee is incredible, with Keith's high-pitched squeal anchored by Ced Gee's bass. Not yet the perv he would become, Keith comes across as a spastic teenager with an active imagination. It all coalesces over Gee's production, which is a mixture of Eric B's James Brown fetishism and Prince Paul's quirky sampledelia. Nearly every song is hot, but standouts include "Funky," the title track and "Ego Trippin'."
