EPMD (Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith)
On the surface, the sample-reliant productions and monotone rapping styles of Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith had little to recommend them, but the duo’s recordings as EPMD were among the best in hip-hop’s underground during the late ’80s and early ’90s. Over the course of four albums (from the 1988 classic Strictly Business to 1992′s Business Never Personal), the group rarely varied from two themes: dissing sucker MCs and recounting sexual exploits. A closer look, however, revealed that the duo’s rhymes were nothing less than incredible, simply undervalued due to their lack of intonation during delivery. EPMD also had a feel for a good groove, and created numerous hip-hop classics, including “It’s My Thing,” “You Gots to Chill,” “Get the Bozack,” “Strictly Business,” and “Rampage.”

Presented by Mark Elliott & The A-List Musiq Circle -Your Bay Area’s Who’s Who Entertainment Network with the support of Hip Hop TV.
