5.0 out of 5 stars iF you are a true hiphop fan you HAVE to acknowledge this!
Artifacts 94 debut is a well complete album. Produced in part by redman and DITC, it offers pretty tight beats along side raw lyrics that make you go DAMN! this stuff is hot! This album is totally slept on and is a great discovery for any hip hop fan... i strongly recommend it as a must have. In my opinion its better than the 97 Thats Them but some disagree due to...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Kingz of Rock
Tame and El Da Sensai have put down the dope East Coast style since this '94 debut, which is filled with old-school flavored memories and herbed-up battle raps. This album does not grow old and 7 years later it still is one of the top rap albums to come out of Newark, NJ.

B/w a rock and a hard place is one of the best hip hop albums ever.El da Sensai & Tame One are the best rappers to come from N.J period,matter of fact they will give any rapper from N.Y except NAS the run for their money.This album is flawless from start to finish and I must say the production is top notch too provided by Buckwild & T-ray go cop this son.

4.0 out of 5 stars artifacts well worth digging for!!!, Dec 19 2003

This review is from: Between a Rock and a Hard ... (Audio CD)
This is the first album from this jersey duo that came out in 1994. The album isnt as good as their second album "thats them" but theres very little that is. The one thing that is present in both cases is tight flows, smart lyrics and head nodding, hard as hell beats. This time round they are provided by Buckwild (from the diggin'in the crates crew) and T-Ray (from the soul assassin crew), with Redman providing his friends with a nice beat also. The singles that were released from this joint were off the chain "c'mon with the git down" which is still an absolute heater after all these years. As is "dynamite soul" and the masterpiece ode to graf,(the 1st joint to do so),"wrong side of the tracks". The rest of this album is so strong that really any track on this could've been singles. Go cop this a.s.a.p. as it really is a diamond of an album.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Da Artifacts Cummin' Through Ya F*ckin' BLOCK!, Nov. 7 2003
By 
This review is from: Between a Rock and a Hard ... (Audio CD)
Hailing from New Jersey come Tame One & El the Sensai. This 1994 debut release from Da Artifacts packs track after track of dirty, funky hip-hop. Under heavy influence from fellow NJ rapper, Redman (producing track #9), this is a very tight album. The rest of the tracks are produced by T-Ray & D.I.T.C affiliate Buckwild. The beats are very tight. The lyrics have content and the hooks are catchy. Everything an album should be. Even Busta Rhymes falls in on track #14 (Hidden Track, "C'mon Wit Da Git Down (Remix)").
Bottom line: This is a very dope album, & if you like Redman or Buckwild, cop this. 4 stars. Peace.

This review is from: Between a Rock and a Hard ... (Audio CD)
what can i say. if your if you consider yourself anything in hiphop than this album better be in your collection. this album has seen more playing time in my cd player than all my other albums combined. well maybe thats not all together true but it has logged in many hours of listening pleasure. the beats are dope. the lyrics and ryhmes are tight. and you actually get a fell of what the pictue is that the artifacts are trying to convey to you. buy this one
