Underapperciated West Coast Part Four

by Travis on January 22, 2007

This is actually plan B as far as posts goes. I had originally worked on the post I wanted to do on Friday at home over the weekend and was going to bring it to work with me to post up today, but I forgot the CD-RW disk I had the word document on, so I’m going with a post I was going to do tomorrow.

Two of the artists I was going to highlite on this series had their albums posted up on other blogs last week, so I was left scrambling for back up plans. The original plan I had, I left at home, figuring I wasn’t going to do this post until tomorrow. Since I travel with booklets of Mp3 disks to listen to while I’m at work, I was left scrambling for something just so I can crank out a post today since I’ve been absent for since Thursday.

Hiero Vs. Hobo

Normally I wouldn’t call Hieroglyphics underrated in any way. Maybe even overrated in some aspects. But there are some aspects and groups under the Hiero umbrella that did get overlooked. In the grand scheme of beefs, one such beef that always seems to get overlooked is the famed Hiero Vs. Hobo Junction beef that happened in the mid 90′s. This jumped off after Saafir did a little spot on Casuals’s “Fear Itself” LP. When Saafir started working on his debut “Boxcar Sessions”, Casual was supposed to return the favor. For whatever reason, Casual never did drop that guest apperance and the beef was on.

The two crews decided to settle this dispute on Sway & Tech’s “Wake Up Show”. Saafir lights up the first couple MC’s, but Casual and Tajai held their own. The rest of the Hobo Junction doesn’t really do anything to impress and sometimes it sounds like Saafir is using writtens, but you be the judge who wins.

I’m a little short on time so here are a couple more Hiero goodies, one which I think has been posted on here and other places in the past. The other, I can’t recall seeing before.
