Overview

The fourth offering from the rambunctious hip-hop junkies the Beatnuts is an all-out assault on the eardrums. This is crack-open-a-party music, with beats that have been chiseled with a Latin feel. Lyrics are rough, rugged, and raunchy. Songs like "Watch Out Now" and "Turn It Out" (featuring Greg Nice) are just plain fun, as close to feel-good music as hardcore hip-hop gets. Other tracks that will satisfy include "Puffin' on a Cloud," "You're a Clown" (featuring Biz Markie), "Buddah in the Air," and the Spanglish headsplitter "Se Acabo." Even the thematic "Look Around," a departure from the Beatnuts' usual hedonistic content, is a pleasant surprise. The true core of the Beatnuts' sound is their fleshy, textured beats, which are dense and dipped in cannabis -- flutes, synthesizers, and various percussion instruments seem to float over and around deep drum machine kicks and snares. Swelling with an eclectic assortment of hypnotic sounds, A Musical Massacre is among 1999's most entertaining hip-hop albums.

The Beatnuts have always dropped good albums, and Musical Massacre is no exception. After dropping the hottest single of summer 99 Watch Out Now, the Beatnuts were finally starting to get the attention that they've long deserved. The production is very solid courtesy of Psycho Les & Ju Ju themselves. The Beatnuts are still up to their usual tactis such as honeys, herb, and liquor. Their are a few cameos most notably Cheryl Pepsi Riley go figure. Overall a solid LP from the duo from Corona Queens.

I've been a true fan of the Beatnuts since their EP and it is a delight to hear them steadily growing, each album the beats are stronger and the lyrics are tighter. ''Watch out Now'' gave them the props they've been singing about for years. I hope the next album will finally blow them up!
