03. Hey Good Lookin
I first heard about this band back in 02 when they were still a fairly unknown indie band. They were just starting to make a name for themselves. I was going to post this album just on the strength of them being a sick band.
As I was researching to find the most recent news on them I found out that in 03 they got an AMA award for new independent band (not that anything that the AMA does is worth anything), but they did get to perform. Probably the only thing that the AMA did that I respect. Cuz this is definitely a sick band.

Stones Throw 2005
01. Sniper Elite Feat MF DOOM
02. Murder Goons Feat Ghostface Killa
03. Sniper Elite & Murder Goons
Ghost and Doom were rhyming over some Dilla tracks off of Donuts before it dropped and some of these tracks have made it out to the ears of the masses. Some on Ghost's Fishscale and some would have made it out on a Doom Dilla colabo but after Dilla passed the project was postponed.
Here we have 2 back to back tracks from Donuts with Doom and Ghost rippin it up. 2 tracks seperately and blended together.
01. Keep It Loose, Keep It Tight
04. Give It Up
The first time I heard Colors was on an episode of House. That shit was real soulful. So I started hunting for this guy's stuff and it has a real down to earth feel. Just some real chill music.
Beyond Records 2000
03. Dance Tonight
08. Without You
14. You Feat Snoop Dogg & Q-Tip
Combining members from Tony! Toni! Toné!, En Vogue, and A Tribe Called Quest, Lucy Pearl burst onto the scene and dropped 2 songs and then vanished into the night like a ninja. A shame too, cuz they really dropped some dope tracks. Dance Tonight was a mainstream hit and You was a hidden gem on that album.
