EPMD - Strictly Business 2LP

Capitol

One of the signature groups from Hip Hop's Golden Age, EPMD's (aka Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith) seminal gold certified 1988 debut Strictly Business cemented the New York duo as true pioneers of the genre. Disparate samples, funky beats and laid-back rhymes coalesce flawlessly on blueprint singles like "You Gots To Chill," "I'm Housin,' and the album's title track. It's no surprise then that Strictly Business appears on both The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums and Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and is regularly cited as an influence by generations of rappers.
