DAS EFX Generation FXThe long awaited return of the rats was worth the wait. The Brooklyn crew joined forces with Parrish from EPMD to set the standard, at least until the next Tribe Called Quest bomb drops. Some truly excellent samples like the bassline from 'Egyptian Lover', some Shalimar, and that sweet, dreamy keyboard riff from 'Strawberry Letter 23,' as well as a completely fucked up usage of 'The Eye of the Tiger,' on the title track, and the 'Dazz' keyboard tone that Ice Cube used when he was king.

Everybody from Redman, EPMD, to Miss Jones get up and give it up for Das, who have not gotten the respect they deserved since their debut single 'They want EFX' four years ago. Of all the NY crews, Das has the most west coast style in their flavor, the way the voices double over one another until you are surrounded and the stream of boasts and challenges. Even if they play down the glamour of it all like a typical New York crew. The six tracks produced by Parrish exclusively are dense with sonic information and the momst interesting musically, although the texture throughout heavy on reference, and musicality. Dope.
