I'm going to be straight up with you, this post is really about getting my hands on that Lyrical Fluctuation EP Jigmastas released sometime somewhere a long long time ago. Now I don't really believe I'll ever find a hard copy of that disc, so I'lll settle with some mp3's. I'm not sure that's going to be easy to find neither, not that I ever did anything more to find it then just looking around random blogs, but anyways...
Anyhoo, I figuerd since I haven't updated this site in a minute it might be rude just posting a request like that for a whole bunch of random discs. So I'm going to go ahead and post these guys debut album, hopefully some of you will like it.
Jigmastas is DJ Spinna and MC Kriminul, it's the classic hip hop group type with one dude behind the boards and one dude rappin. DJ Spinna has done work with big names like De La Soul, Eminem and Mos Def to name a few.
The album. It's a strong bom bap New York rap release spiced with samples from both funk and jazz. DJ Spinna shows he can handle a variety of samples to make each song get it own sound and feeling, yet the tracks sound great together as an album. MC Kriminul is a talented and intelligent lyricist mostly recongnized for his strong wordplay.
