very underrated group. Capitol I-Man/ Intellect and Sinful One as I remember them fondly were something different in Latin Hip Hop from Cali compared to Cypress Hill, Kid Frost or SoCal Latin groups and rappers like Lil Rob, Proper Dose, Knight Owl and before Psycho Realm or Tres Delinquents emerged into the mainstream in the mid 90s. I heard of them in the early 90s when relatives from Southern California moved to Texas and Hip Hop and graffiti started making its way to Texas.
I was 13 yrs old when I first heard their album because all my cousins would play was West Coast rap. Compared to what else was out there that was West Coast or Rap in general was............different. haha, the production value for what it is wasn't to bad since it was an independent record label. The beats on all the tracks were funky and unorthodox. My favorite track on the whole album is 'Phonkie Melodia'. Very little Spanish is spoken except for a few tracks where its mixed with Spanish and English verses. Sinful One is the one who lays down those verses as I believe Intellect isn't as versed with the language.
Since this is their freshman album, you can tell they were developing their sound. Their second self titled album that came out 2 years later in 1996 was even better. the production value, beats, lyrics and everything else about it was a lot more hardcore and mature. This album compared to their second album I consider it more of a house party album of sorts. If you like latin hip hop, then this album is worth getting. The second album is light years ahead of this one and if you can find it (goodluck if you do) definitely get it too.
