Genius E Dub (feat. Olivia)
Label: J Records
A legendary producer/emcee who co-founded EPMD and helped launch the careers of Redman and Das EFX, among others, Erick Sermon has been crafting classic hip-hop since the 1980s. On his third solo LP, he delivers a grip of hard-thumping tunes, with guests like Redman, LL Cool J, and Marvin Gaye on the excellent title track.
