Boomkat Product Review:
Delroy Edwards’ L.A. Club Resource return to the gully goldmines of ‘90s Memphis Rap with reissue of Lo Key’s 1994 tape ‘Test My Nutz’, retitled as ‘Criminalistic Knowledge’
Low Key is apparently Tommy Wright’s cousin, and who the chuff are we to dispute? His ‘Criminalistic Knowledge’ falls hard in line with LACR’s previous shots by Lil Noid, Shawty Pimp, and MC Mack as a prime example of deep south rap templates, effectively laying the groundwork for a sound which has dominated rap for well over a decade now. You probably already know hat to do, but take it on trust this is the top grade crud, smothered in tape compression and loaded with extra soggy subs, southern gothic synths, and starring Low Key in breathlessly aggy, swaggering form.
Straight up killer.
