This is just one of those names and titles that would have caught the attention of any Hip Hop fan in ’89. Then pick up the record and you got 3 smooth, but rugged looking brothers on the cover with a Graf background and you are even more likely to make the purchase…
Unfortunately, doing so wasn’t easy. This regional Chicago record had limited distribution, making it a heavy collectors item these days…I’ve never even seen a copy. However, the new reigning reissue/throwback champ, Dope Folks, comes thru once again. This time it’s the Ruthless Rod & MC Dollar 12” with 3 of the original tracks, but replaces the love ballad with a previously unheard track, “Break Em Down”.
The 12” production is handled by Emile Augustine and uses a combination of familiar, but quality samples (ex: Lyn Collins, Queen, etc…), sparse drums, and some simple, but effective keyboard work. DJ Fellow-Rock’s scratching is reserved for the two uptempo joints and he makes great use of his time with quick, but precise, studder style cuts.” – Kevin Beacham, Fifth Element
