A while back, I admitted to having a soft spot for East Coast rap. How could I not, with big names like Biggie, Big L, and Rakim hailing from New York. Well, my amorous relationship is only getting stronger. I was recently introduced to Dujeous, a hip hop band. Yes, they are a band, consisting of horns, drums, bass, guitar licks, two emcees and a vocalist. Their 2004 breakout album City Limits is musical gold through and through, with every track capturing the essence of musicianship and high production value. On top of the quality of the music, the message is tight and powerful– that there are obvious and underlying problems in our country. This is the type of music that needs to be supported– grassroots and true to its roots. Get the full album on Itunes.
