Über Terror Squad
A powerful six-man crew, the Terror Squad are one of the few rap cliques that have mastered the tricky business of making hits for the streets and the clubs. Hip-hop heavyweights Fat Joe and Big Pun join forces with new jacks Triple Seis, Armageddon, Prospect, and Cuban Link on vicious tracks perfect for the whip, the corner, and the dance floor. Instead of hogging the mic, the more established Joe and Pun lay back in the cut, letting their younger brethren shine. Lyrics focus on gritty city dramas and proud braggadocio, backed with stellar production that is simultaneously rugged and catchy. A deadly serious force, the TS perfectly balance the duties of urban storytelling and crowd moving, with tight joints guaranteed to hype even the most cement-footed thugs. In 2004, Terror Squad returned, minus Big Pun (R.I.P.) and Cuban Link. They scored a big hit with "Lean Back," the lead single from the album True Story.
