Afu-Ra - Body of the Life Force

  • Afu-Ra

    Body of the Life Force LP (2000)

    D&D Records

Conscious indie hip hop debut from the rapper with close ties to NYC rap heavyweights like Jeru the Damaja, DJ Premiere, and Wu-Tang.  Body of the Life Force exemplifies his love for martial arts and his approach to life through chess.  It’s also at the tail end of the “boom bap era”, so it’s very much appreciated by hip hop purists.  Almost 20 years later, the album has reached cult classic status (despite the dated Playstation 1 cover art ) and track that everybody goes bonkers for is the Premo produced "Whirlwind Thru Cities."
