Despite being somewhat long winded, “Blood Sweat & No Tears” was my favorite Stetsasonic release. Although “Walking in the Rain” could be forgotten there’s still plenty to love here. The Lp begins with “Hip Hop Band” a dope ass instrumental showcasing the talents of drummer Bobby Simmons. Prince Paul coming off his success with De La’s 3 Feet High, lays much of the groundwork for Daddy O, DBC & Wise to skate on. IMO “U Da Man” and “Don’t let your mouth write a check” still sound fresh today. Don’t sleep on Stetsa, and oh yeah..pick up In Full Gear.
