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.

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.

Wow! has it been four years since this album overtook my life? there wasn't a day that would diminish at which some point I had not heard a least one track from BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE.
Few pieces of work have had an affect on me such as this. the mere aspect of their raw down-to-earth lyrics and beats that would take you to euphoria.
This album is worth any price that Amazon choses to sell it for. (of course it shouldn't be rediculous)
