Probably one of the most obscure classics from 1994 (although, fairly heralded and more identifiable as of late, thanks to the ‘net) is 50ne6′s 3 single smash, “Mystic Microfon”. Boasting production from Erik Romero, whose name you’ll easily recognize from Kwest Tha Madd Lad”s debut and one of my favorite LPs of all-time, “This Is My First Album”, as he produced “Lubrication” and “Disnexone”. Also, in 1996, Romero lent a production hand to Chino XL with what is probably one of the stronger tracks from “Here To Save You All”, “Creep”.
Sadly, as expected, “Mystic Microfon” would be the last we’d hear from 50ne6 and it’s a damn shame as it’s hard to find a better 3-song stretch than that of the title cut (which features a slick lyrical sample from Jeru The Damaja’s “Come Clean”), “Dirty Little Bitch” and “Rap Attack”. The EP was released on Ill Labels which was actually distributed by Tommy Boy Records.
