Killa Kidz – The 1996-1997 Phenomenon EP (Vinyl) (2013) (FLAC + 320 kbps)

If you know your Hip Hop geography you will know that boxed in by the bridge, Vernon Blvd and 21st Street is Queensbridge Housing Projects – a glamorous neighbourhood if you wanna see it like that, but to most cats who grew up there it was a hard place to live. A bunch of young cats, ranging from 14 to late teens would hang out and hustle by the corner of Vernon and 41st Avenue near the park. These young’uns were born into rhyming, being from the same buildings as Queens’ Hip Hop legends Nas, Mobb Deep, Tragedy and Marley Marl. A local music industry head and Hip Hop fan known as True Force saw some potential in this natural grouping of raw talent and he took one cat (Sham) and his brother (Third Surgeon) as well as the older Killah Sha (in his late teens) into a studio to record. Nothing came from that first session but the result of the second session was the track “’96 Phenomenon”. The third session they recorded “Time 2 Shine” and then following that a flood of tracks were written.
