Straight outta South Central, but far from what you expect, is an apt description for the Freestyle Fellowship, a quartet of rappers who released this often overlooked classic in 1993. The group, Aceyalone, Mikah Nine, Mtulazjl PeAce and Self Jupiter, came together at The Good Life Café, a health food store that sponsored rap events. The quartet distinguished themselves both with superior rhymes and innovative delivery. They often altered their enunciation and lightly scatted their words. In presentation they were neither jesters nor hippies, just four around the way guys with a different approach than their peers. Aceyalone and Mikah Nine were later signed to solo deals, and Kedar Massenburg, the Executive Producer of this recording went on to produce D'Angelo and Erykah Badu.
