So instead of releasing another sure shot, Chopped Herring decided to roll with a super-rare fish-related jawn for the label’s 200th release, just like the 100th and if possible, just like the 300th release will be. This project by Manuel out of Cambridge MA is crazy hard to find. It has numerous fish references and is dope as fuck so had to be Herring #200. Thanks to all the fishermen, who made this happen!!

Napoleon Da Legend possesses a Shakesperian-like ability to shape and mold flows and words into emotional and visceral streams of consciousness. Born in Paris, France and originally from the impoverished Comoros Islands in lower East Africa, N.D.L. grew up in Washington DC giving his music a unique street flavor mixed with a third world perspective. N.D.L.’s innovative short-film “Wise Men” featuring the late great Sean Price quickly became a cult hit among Hip-Hop heads with its overt challenge of the music industry establishment. His signature wordplay and voice rose from relative obscurity after the groundbreaking “Oxygen” record featuring Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon. He has since been touring Europe and the United States having been tapped to perform at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival in June 2015 and France’s HipOpsession Festival alongside legendary French DJ Poska in February 2016. He was a featured artist on Huffington Post Black Voices Freestyle Fridays in March 2016. These productions feature nobody else but Raekwon, El Da Sensei, Sean Price and Sadat X.

Famed for so-called experts being convinced he was Nasty Nas in disguise, this Coney Island MC & artist has reeped valuable column inches in high and low brow publications alike. From The New Yorker, to NY Times, The Guardian to MTV [it's not for us to say which ones are high and which are low!!], dude has been makin headlines cause, he sounds like what every true Hip Hop head wishes Nas still sounded like - a huge compliment, no less. Last week when Nas was asked by MTV what he thought of the Your Old Droog situation, he conveniently forgot he knew anything about the whole saga, speaking volumes [up to 11] in the process and keeping the hardcore Hip Hop consipracy theorists salivating. Nas or not [not!], Droog killed it with his debut EP produced by himself and the extremely dope RTNC [famed for his beats for Timeless Truth, among others].

For your listening pleasure Herring presents 4 dope tracks from Shawn Lov's 14th and final album. The Trenton MC has been laying down tracks since 1989 and recorded from 1989-1996 at his father's studio - the very same spot that Courageous Chief, Royal Family, Soul Survivors, and Shakespeare and Last Empire recorded their grails! Being from Trenton you might guess he would've been tight with Tony D [R.I.P.] - which he was. The legendary Poor Righteous Teachers producer mentored Shawn until his untimely passing and produced and featured on a bunch of Shawn's jawns. Included on this project is production from Shawn himself as well as the excellent The Custodian of Records and German beatmaker Raiden. ENJOY YO!!!.New Jersey based Shawn Lov began his career as a recording artist in 1994 with the release of his first LP "Speak of the Devil," which led to various live performances and guest appearances including Video Music Box Events (1994-1995), acting as the opener for Mobb Deep, King Sun, Big Pun and Ol' Dirty Bastard (1995), and as a musical guest on The Jenny Jones Show (1998). By 1997, Shawn Lov was collaborating with the late legendary Hip-Hop producer Tony- D of Poor Righteous Teacher and YZ fame, and their collaborations yielded hits like "The Lov Doctor," "I'm Pathetic," and "Respect This." Shawn's second LP "The G.O.D." was released in 1998, and was produced entirely by Tony D. It wasn't until Shawn Lov dropped his "Never Never Land" LP in 2000 that he began topping the charts on mp3.com and quickly gained a loyal underground following which expanded even further following his partnership overseas with Nuffsaid.

Prince Paul hit Chopped Herring up to release this dope early 90's project!!The first incarnation of the group was formed around 1989 in Amityville, Long Island, New York, although the family grew up in Long Island. The family of four brothers (Anthony, Richard, Joel, and Edward) and one sister (Dawne), of which Anthony (Poetic) was the eldest, were born to Trinidadian parents who moved from Trinidad and Tobago in 1971, making their first residence in Queens, New York for a short time, then moving to Long Island. John Berkeley (a pastor and a local businessman) and Ela Berkeley (a homemaker, cook-nutritionist, and teacher) were both singers and artistic in general, and they encouraged artistic expression in their five children. The family was well-rounded musically, singing gospel and R&B up to their early teens all around New York, other states, and Canada as "The Berkeley Singers". Anthony (Poetic), Dawne, and Joel (Brainstorm) sang, accompanied by Richard on the drums and Eddie (E-Sharp) on the piano or keyboard.Poetic began rhyming in his early teens in Wyandanch, and was known by many names and building a name for himself as a lyrical battle MC. He changed his name to Poetic around 1985, and in 1986 he formed the crew known as Too Poetic, who in 1988-89 released a modestly popular single called: “God Made Me Funky/Poetical Terror”, under the DNA/Tommy Boy Music imprint. The group’s relationship with Tommy Boy Records eventually panned out for various reasons, scrapping the album and making Poetic very displeased, an early casualty of the politics of the music business. While Poetic was just beginning his formal hip hop career in 1987–89, Brainstorm was attending college at the State University of New York at Farmingdale, Long Island, where he was the roommate of Brooklyn’s own Super DJ Richie Rich (who had been in Third Base, Clark Kent’s Supermen, and the movie Juice). The university was host to many hip hop artists as visitors for parties and to do shows like Rakim, EPMD, Producer-Super DJ Clark Kent, and Biz Markie.After Brainstorm finished his college run in 1989, he took time to learn many aspects of the music business, but in 1989 he and Poetic mutually decided to pair up with a hardcore lyrical edge, original word play, and acute metaphors, after many collaborations between them since 1985. Thus, Da Bruthas G.R.Y.M. was born shortly after Too Poetic’s deal with DNA/Tommy Boy had soured. The energy and high chemistry between these true by-blood brothers at the time was, simply put, natural.In the first Bruthas G.R.Y.M. era (c. 1989–1992), the brothers Poetic (Brother One) and Brainstorm (Brother Two) garnered much respect on the underground hip hop scene of New York Their first official demo featured the underground bangers like “Bruthas G.R.Y.M.”, “Circle-Circle-Dot-Dot”, the politically charged “Popcorn” and “Livin’ In Hell (Had To Survive)”. The demo featured production mastering by Nate "NATO" Tinsley, their in-house producer Semi-Automatic (Pedro Sims, Mr. Semi, Gravediggaz), and the brothers themselves. After blazing underground radio and live shows around New York City, they were listed in The Source magazine as the best unsigned rap group of 1989. The crew was then managed by longtime friend Jack Pope (Jack Sprat, Starving Artists Entertainment), who later became the road manager of the Gravediggaz. These cassette tape “dubs” floated around the New York streets in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and their demo eventually made their way to the seasoned musical ear of fellow Amityvillain Prince Paul (Stetsasonic, De La Soul, Gravediggaz) from his association with the local Long Island artists who had met the brothers and saw their raw talent. In 1990 Prince Paul decided to fund and executive produce further demos, finding various other known and up-and-coming producers for the unnamed project, as well as being the tentative DJ for the group.Then the unfortunate happened – being disenfranchised by the politics and games of the music business and life in general, Brainstorm just quit altogether for “personal enlightenment”, before any formal deal could solidify. Poetic understood about Brainstorm’s personal path at that stage in his life, but was silently devastated because they were so close to sealing a major record deal that would have propelled them further into Hip Hop history. Their original demo, even today, is still one of Prince Paul’s favorites. It was not until 1992 that Poetic, after Brainstorm quit in 1991, that it is said that Poetic “fell on hard times”, including a short period of homelessness. Brainstorm would continue to write for leisure and therapeutic reasoning, but never to seriously pursue a music career, moving to Brooklyn New York and later down south to various states; in fact, Brainstorm was so “finished with Hip Hop” that he gave Poetic all of his original rhyme books to use at his own discretion – some lyrics ending up on Gravediggaz projects.

Ness Tee, founder, MC, writer and producer of Rukus started his career in the early days of Hip Hop music. He opened up shows for Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five back in 1980 and continued to rock the mic at concerts from Boston to Cali rolling with his boys Naughty By Nature and The Outlaws. Rukus, which was formed in 1995, also consisted of MC, Barry Pendergrass aka Focus who was the brother-in-law of Eddie Murphy's brother Vernon Lynch [who also appears on the original Rukus - Come Out 12" on background vocals]. Ness and Barry used to live on the same street in Montclair, NJ and sharing a mutual interest in the culture from way back, started to record. With some financial help from his family, Ness pressed up the 12" on his own Insignt label and it caught the attention of and was later licensed by a subsid of Casablanca records, Chocolate City Recs. Even though it was pressed twice the record is surprisingly rare. The crew still had the original reels, so when we contacted them about a deal to drop the tracks from the 12" and limited cassette version and 3 other unreleased tracks on Herring, they transfered them for us. The result is a banging EP of rare NJ flavas from 1994.

One of the dopest releases on Herring. Very much reminiscent of a classic 1994 album - production comes from undercover Philly producer MG aka Mentally Gifted and the beats are on a Beatnuts/Extra P/Groove Merchants/Pete Rock tip - ha - sounds good right? It is!!!!This project started up about 4 years ago. Tabb licensed Chopped Herring the ""Brothers in Da Hood"" joint, a known Heavy Grail - but the label was always looking for more tracks to make a solid project. It took a series of collectors and hardcore Hip Hop Headz to take it to the next. PQuest, a collector and music afficiando from Germany hit up requesting the release of the “Big Tabb demos from 1994” - some short snippets had been upped to the tube. Even though it'd been a while, Herring got back in touch with Tabb [aka Jakk Frost] to find out if he still had the masters of his early demos - he did not. The label got back in touch with P and asked if he knew anyone who had seen the demo tape around. It turned out that a copy of the original demo tape had recently sold at auction. The buyer and seller were known to Herring as one was an old Herring customer and the other had hit Herring up about releasing another, demo tape only project, also out of Philly. One gave the other's details and after a few months the hi-quality tape transfers were in the hands or fins of Herring. The buyer was a cat from the states called Lance Baker and the seller was Mad Human - a respected dealer of rap rarities. So this was a muthafuckin team effort - BIG UP FELLAS!

Chopped Herring is gonna start up 2017 with a real obscure project and purest underground bomb outta Austin, Texas from the year 1995. The group never officially released anything. There was just this full length demo tape. Reminiscent of the Bay Area sound, on a Hiero/Dereliks/Sacred Hoop tip, this underground bomb was handed to the label by French demo tape collector Hakan Dougpark. Here's a few words from MC & Producer Tony Hardman, who is now a sneaker designer at Nike based in LA: "Kichi and I met working in a record store when I lived in Austin in 94. We were 20 years old and as Hip Hop heads, we hit it off right away. He had been rapping and mixing and scratching for years and I had been involved in a few other groups rapping and doing production. Naturally we came together, inspired by all of the amazing music coming out at that time (the B.U.M.s, Nas, BIG, Common, Artifacts, Co Flo). We spent nights in my mom's garage or in a little lab room at his crib writing and recording as much as we could. The album was recorded over the course of a year in 1994/1995 with an EPS 16 plus and a Tascam 4 track recorder. We went on through the late 90s gaining local notoriety through the college Hip Hop radio (House of Phat Beats) and performing at a few different spots in the city. Eventually I moved to Denver to go back to school around 2000. The rest is history."

“Class A Felony” and their self-titled album from 1993 is one of those underground groups that existed as a Hip Hop mystery for many years. The original album cover alone is very interesting on first sight. Unfortunately lead MC, Lord Dumar passed away two years prior to the release of this album. These recordings were produced by C. Smith (a.k.a Class A Felony member DJ Stitches), with a couple tracks by Dumar himself and five tracks by the mighty, DJ Mark The 45 King also featuring a Diamond D production. Although this is a debut album, Dumar sounds very seasoned and sharply skilled. His delivery is fluid and his presence is confident. His voice is gruff, which helps drives his points home, but his apparent years of MC development allowed him to effortlessly display his comedic side as well. Although there is not much additional info about the album, the listening experience alludes to at least two things. Dumar has been making music at least since the mid to late 80s and he was probably establishing a decent name for himself in that time since people were snatching up concepts from his demos.

What can you say about Stetsasonic. Formed in 1979, Stetsa are possibly one of the most important and influential Hip Hop groups in the history of the artform. Here are 6 unreleased, unheard and unleaked joints from 1991-1994. The title track "People in the Neighborhood" is a retort to the sanitised world of Sesame Street, dropping realism and social commentary on the state of NY. The song is typical of their enlightened and critical outlook, melding comedy with healthy dollops of satire. Stesasonic did it like no one else, which makes Herring very proud to present this vinyl-only project of utter dopeness.

Two MC's from the South Side of Chicago, Rabiez and Sire Sensai met back in 1987 and by 1988, with a neighbourhood producer, DJ Slice, they began to lay down tracks together. They performed at local shows and high school talent shows. Sire Sensai attended Calumet High School in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood of South Chicago and RaBieZ attended Luther South High School in Ashburn. They watched, at close hand, Common Sense and NoID come up, getting signed after puttin in a lot of hard work and local promo. They were both alumni of Rabiez' High School, two years before Rabiez and watching them do their thing, with a wordwide audience, was an eye opener for the two local Chicago boys, as well as inspirational!! This project includes material from the first 2 vinyl from 1996 and 1997, as well as previously unheard bangers!

Originally recorded in 1991, but finally released in 1994, the "Suckas Brevity/Hostile Lifestyle" 12-inch by New Jersey MC & producer Beneficence is what you would probably refer to as an "obscure record". Only 100 copies were ever pressed on indie label Big House Records, so Herring & Beneficence's label Ill Adrenaline thought it might be a good idea to repress the 12-inch and to add some previously unreleased Beneficence jawn from the 90's.

Chopped Herring is gonna start up 2017 with a real obscure project and purest underground bomb outta Austin, Texas from the year 1995. The group never officially released anything. There was just this full length demo tape. Reminiscent of the Bay Area sound, on a Hiero/Dereliks/Sacred Hoop tip, this underground bomb was handed to the label by French demo tape collector Hakan Dougpark. Here's a few words from MC & Producer Tony Hardman, who is now a sneaker designer at Nike based in LA: "Kichi and I met working in a record store when I lived in Austin in 94. We were 20 years old and as Hip Hop heads, we hit it off right away. He had been rapping and mixing and scratching for years and I had been involved in a few other groups rapping and doing production. Naturally we came together, inspired by all of the amazing music coming out at that time (the B.U.M.s, Nas, BIG, Common, Artifacts, Co Flo). We spent nights in my mom's garage or in a little lab room at his crib writing and recording as much as we could. The album was recorded over the course of a year in 1994/1995 with an EPS 16 plus and a Tascam 4 track recorder. We went on through the late 90s gaining local notoriety through the college Hip Hop radio (House of Phat Beats) and performing at a few different spots in the city. Eventually I moved to Denver to go back to school around 2000. The rest is history."

The group consisted of Nasty Noah, Lil Brad, Bubz, Robbie Rob and later Devon (Gray). They came up in the Post Road/Boston Road area of the Bronx in the 1980's. Heavily influenced by the local Hip Hop scene and in Noah's case by his uncle, who was a local DJ, they began making Hip Hop music (separately) in their teens. The group's first manager was 1980's Tuff City recording artist and X-Clan's female MC Traedonya Chequelle. She introduced the boys to Adopho Mohammad who became their second manager. Through Adopho, DHUM were signed to CL Smooth productions and CL appears on the flip side of their record on a track called 'The Blue Print'. Adolpho also managed the groups Indigo and Mixed Elements all under the North Pole production banner. At one point Interscope came calling and were on the verge of signing all the acts but (as usually happens) the stars weren't alligned and the deal fell through. Soon after, the group broke up and Da Hoodz with the new addition of Devon morphed into D.N.A who recorded the grail 12" 'Bronx Criminal County'.

Absolute Value (or The Value for short) originated from Flatbush, Brooklyn in the heart of New York City. The majority of their music was recorded between 1989 to 1996. Before an official deal with a record label could be agreed upon, Absolute Value disbanded in 1998 and over 16 years of music was shelved on master reels and DAT tapes. Since that period each of the 4 group members did continue on in the music scene and in 2016 decided collectively to finally give the Absolute Value material a proper release.

Genre:Hip Hop
As seen on the recent Noisey profile of the new documentary, Stretch & Bobbito's show on Columbia University's radio station played a remarkably influential role in the 90s hip-hop scene. Many artists have expressed this sentiment through songs and interviews, but none have gone quite so far as the OG Aborigines. The group's debut album "Rice Krispy Treats" is a tribute to the golden years of Stretch & Bobbito's time on the air, and is a testament to the long- lasting appeal of the show. With modern rhymes over vintage sounding instrumentals, Squires (the producer) and Rapswell (the MC) conjure up the feel of the best moments at WKCR. The albums 11 tracks feature neck snapping beats reminiscent of the legendary songs that were played on the station: Large Professor, DJ Premier, Buckwild, and Q-Tip all lend inspiration to these tracks, but Squires has a style of his own. Rapswell is likewise an accomplished wordsmith, and the duo adds on to the top notch material they put out this past July when they dropped the PEN PALS project on Chopped Herring Records. "Rice Krispy Treats" is an album that will give longtime fans of Stretch & Bobbito a nostalgic kick, and give people just learning about them a chance to catch glimpses of the 89Tec9 experience, through the various audio clips strewn throughout the LP.

They had enough material for a album and the plan was to self release. They put their money together and self-financed 300 copies on wax and 300 tapes through Disc Makers. The local feedback was great and the record led on to more Baltimore Hip Hop releases over the next few years, kick starting a healthy Baltimore scene.

Hailing from Brooklyn, Squires [Beat maker], The Cynic [MC] & Rapswell [MC] are...Pen Pals. Dudes hit the Herrings up to check their music and honestly yo, the dudes were COMPLETELY blown away. Was this a classic super group using a pseudonym? Q-Tip, Ad-Rock, Edan, Slick Rick, Doppelgangaz with Prince Paul and [lost] Paul C production? It made no sense - how could a first release be SO well put together? There was/is something suspicious about it! They hit 'em up with 2 tracks [of the 10 here] and they cut a deal there and then - didn't need to hear any more. Tip!

This release is the culmination of many years of flava-hunting. Herring has been looking for these tracks in best quality for over 5 years and several months ago a good Herring customer alerted us to a post on the excellent DWG forum. Someone was selling two cassettes he copped from a Natural Elements show in the late 90's. The tapes contained demos, rare freestyles and unreleased NE joints dubbed from the [now lost] original sources [not radio versions]. Among the demos were the elusive, early Mr Voodoo tracks included on this release.

"The Baltimore Archives 1993-1996" project includes unreleased and unleaked joints from the FunkieAve Productions' vault, all produced by Baltimore Hip Hop producer and MC Jay Funk. Famed for his production of local artists such as Mr.Rukkuz, Kmack, L-Fly, Infinite Description, S.C.U, Labtekwon, Amp Boogie, NormSkola, Pat Leach as well as his own group Da Ghetto Connect, Jay was the go-to producer for that 90's, raw Hip Hop sound! Recording at the family owned,TicToc Studios in Baltimore, Jay made the most out of limited resources by using two ADAT players simultaneously to create 16 audio tracks as well as sampling on his trusty Eps16. Cats knew where to go to get their demos recorded and Jay worked day and night on the boards. When he wasn't producing for other acts, he was recording a host of tracks for his own group Ghetto Connect which included himself on the mic as well as MC JD. Inspired by acts like EPMD, Gang Starr and the Wu Tang Clan, The GC would break the rules any chance they got - whether it was sonically, timing-wise or production-wise, they always tried to keep shit FRESH!! Most of their material hasn't been released until now and this EP includes 5 tracks by the group as well a very early demo by S.C.U. and joints by L Fly & Bugga and K-Mack.

The collective known as Massive Staff was formed by a group of MC's and producers that started recording out of "The Safehouse." The Safehouse was a home studio owned by Kyle Knordle, aka Knowledge, based in East Orange, NJ. In the early 90's, The Safehouse was a creative center for numerous underground New Jersey artists. Known for its clear sound and hard, gritty beats, produced by Knowledge and his partner "Gee the Madman," The Safehouse attracted a number of up and coming artists that were well known to the Jersey music scene. Artists like Rah Digga (Flipmode, Outsidaz), Josh Milan (Blaze), Fatal Hussain (Tupac's Outlaws), Omega (N.A.C./Refugee Camp), Tame One (Artifacts), Pace Won (Outsidaz) , Feerce (Crazy Cat), and even the legendary Grand Master Flash are just a few of the artists that passed through and honed their skills at the Safehouse.

This dope Philly project goes back to the group mMOMENTUMm, who dropped a single on Libra Records in 1994 called "Chaotic Frequency". Two of the three member, Cas and J-Rock started to explore other options after the group split. J-Rock enrolled in the Art Institute of Philadelphia where he met a dude from Chambersburg called Jeff [vague, I know]. Long story short, Jeff's "peeps" gave J some loot to open up a studio [read into that what you will]. Cas and J-Rock found a spot on the famous South Street in Philly at 818 South St in the basement and they called it Renaissance Sound Studio. Up until that point Cas only rapped but he took that opportunity to learn how to make beats and he also reconnected with his boy DJ Sat One who had a retail clothing store off 4th & South Street called "Funkadelphia". South Street at the time was the central meeting spot for a lot of underground MC's in Philly. So the boys took advantage of their location and started recording with a bunch of the cats who used to hang around that area. "Nasty English" was a Philly-based graf magazine which DJ Sat One and the writer PRAZE started and the fellas incorporated that name into the cassette-only compilation "The Genesis of Nasty English" which was dropped in small numbers and sold locally in stores as well as by hand. We have taken 7 tracks which featured on that tape from the original masters and one from the tape itself [it was a killer, we COULDN'T leave it out!!]. Several years later Cas set up the ReadyRock label putting out the first Chief Kamachi single and works by Maylay Sparks, Baby Blak and KMD. Cas grew up in South Philly in the Penrose section on Lindbergh Blvd. He got into Hip Hop when the school bus one day was playing a tape of Criminal Minded [imagine!]. We hooked up with Cas through Rahsheed/Maylay and that hook up led us to the "Genesis of Nasy English" material. HOLD TIGHT there is more in the vaults...

$amhill is from the Morrisainia section of the South Bronx.He was born and raised in the Daniel Webster projects by way of Boston Rd, by way of Forest projects. He first experienced Hip Hop culture as a little child as it blossomed in the early 1980's. His earliest memory was picking up and reading the info on a record purchased by his older brother - that record was "Sucker M.C's" by Run Dmc. He is from the same block as the late, great Tim Dog and came up in the same community as Ultramagnetic M.C's. Hip Hop has been embedded in $amhill from an early. He began rapping at 14, as a suggestion by friends on 167th st & Boston Rd. Rapping became a reality the day he saw Show of Showbiz & A.G. on Boston Rd right after seeing him on Video Music Box. $amhill credits his immense passion for hip hop to Show & A.G. who had a severe influence on his career ...

So here it is, our first [and hopefully not our last] Swedish Hip Hop release on Chopped Herring Records. Here we have a selection of tracks from the Collen and Webb-produced 1995 [cd only] album from Bakers Of The Holy Bread - The End Of A Cold Experience. The group, conisting of David Lenneman, Göran Lindohf and Tobias Addo hailed from Umea in the north of Sweden. They dropped their first 12" "Roughnecks Comin’" in 1993 and followed up with a cd-only EP entitled "Three Views Concerning Human Knowledge" in 1994. The album dropped in the following year but was only ever released on CD - so you guessed it, Herring has selected 6 heaters for this limited vinyl EP including "Riddle in the Middle" which only appear on the EP/CD single.

MC Class has pedigree. The godson of "Penetentiary" [1979] director Jamaa Fanaka and blacksploitation actress Carol Speed, Class was born and grew up in the Baychester area of the North Bronx. From his bedroom window in the 1970's he would experience the initial wave of Hip Hop culture first hand in the form of local DJ's setting up their turntables in the park over the way and blasting pre-Hip Hop flava to the local community, free of charge!! Back then Hip Hop was a free culture and Class would lament it's progression into a commercial product and it's bastardisation on route. His early exposure to the music came through Jerry Bloodrock's radio show on college radio, which he would tape and play in the schoolyard on his boombox. At that time everyone round the way rhymed and Class was no different. In fact all his communication to others was supplied in the form of rhyme - he was truly a product of his environment. But experiencing first hand the growing violence in the streets of the Bronx in the 70's and early 80's and abhorring it, he vowed to get out of NY. It was the Navy which came to his immediate rescue...He got out of the Navy in 1989 and not wanting to move back to New York he set himself up in Seattle, about as far away as he could get. There he formed the group Brothers Of The Same Mind. Off the back of many successful live shows they were written up in the Unsigned Hype section of The Source in 1990 which lead to more touring, then finding representation. Following another feature in The Source as well as many other Hip Hop mags of the day, they were signed to Conspiracy Records. They dropped one single on Conspiracy, but before an album could be picked up for a major deal the band split up.Following the demise of the group, Class was hit with a bout of depression. Realising his knowledge, commitment and passion for his art he went back to college to study sound engineering and film. A direct motivator for his newly chosen path was the result of a show he performed at as a solo artist after the group split up. The sound quality was mad nasty at the venue and the main act came on stage, kicked the sound engineer off the boards and brought in its own dude. Class realised then the importance of sound control and focused for the next few years on obtaining a bachelors degree. Oh, the main act was Dj Quick! Class self financed his first solo 12", the now in-demand "Hope You're Listening" and gave all copies away as promos. Red Alert got one and used it on a mix tape and a few artists sampled the opening line of "Fishin'". He contued to work with artists in a production and video producing capacity through the 90s and to this day can be found writing and producing in the North West.When the Brothers split and Class was feelin like his life wasn't making sense, one of his boys, in reference to him using his skills to make something happen with his career, offered him some advice and it's this analogy that 20 years later lead to Class and Herring's collab for the 100th release on the label. He said "Yo Class, you need to go fishin'"...the rest is history....
