Shyheim was only 16 years old when this album dropped in 94. He was living with his big cousin Ghostface Killah in the Stapelton Houses at the time and began recording with The Clan which ultimately led to the release of "A.K.A The Rugged Child."
Even though he was extremely young he shows moments of real brilliance on the mic. He sounds partly like Big L and early Inspectah Deck combined I suppose.
Oh and the classic "On and On" was produced by some guy named Premiere? Not sure who he is.
If you love that 93 - 94' timberland, shorties, forties, l's, style of hip-hop then add this to all the other classics from the era.
