Sir Vicious : The Best Of Just Ice (2xLP)

Sale price$19.88


Starting with the debut full-length Back to the Old School audiences around the world discovered Just-Ice as one of the first MCs to bring it so hard as to be called hardcore rap. Perhaps his past as a bouncer at punk rock clubs around New York had something to do with his hardcore attitude, or perhaps just a reflection of coming up in a pre-hipster Brooklyn. Regardless, content-wise Just-Ice may have been aggressive, but the yin and the yang of it is that his flow is stylistically elegant. Production by Kurtis Mantronik only accentuated this aggressive elegance. When Mantronik exited the Sleeping Bag camp, Just-Ice paired up with KRS-One for Kool & Deadly and The Desolate One. The partnership resulted in classics like Freedom Of Speech, Welfare Recipients, and Moshitup. Continuing to pair up with legends, 1990s Masterpiece found Ice working with Grandmaster Flash.

Just-Ice has never sounded as fresh as on this double LP compendium of Sir Vicious output for the storied Fresh, Sleeping Bag and Warlock imprints. Just the best of Just-Ice is included, from his debut 12 Latoya/Put That Record Back On with production by Kurtis Mantronik through Cool and Wicked from VII Sir Vicious complies the best material covering more than a decade and four of the best albums in hip hop history.
