The B.U.M.S. - Lyfe 'n' Tyme

  • The B.U.M.S.

    Lyfe 'n' Tyme LP (1995)

    Priority Records

Despite being from Oakland, The B.U.M.S (Brothas Unda Madness) hardly had a West Coast sound. Their beats were more DITC boom bap and emcees D-Wyse and E-Vocalist have no hint of that Bay Area twang.  Many on Soul Strut regard this album as an under the radar gem of mid 90s hip hop, especially on the title track "Lyfe 'n' Tyme" which features one of the better female verses of the time by Mystic and the banger "Let the Music Take Your Mind".  This is highly recommended for 90s sample based hip hop lovers.
