Time to go back to the original Golden Era for another classic album anniversary. My Throwback Thursday is for the 30th anniversary of the release of EPMD’s Strictly Business. Of course, this was their debut album and they blew it out of the water. One of the things that stand out about this album and that’s the production. Erick Sermon is one of the most underrated producers ever. Strictly Business has been called one of the best hip hop albums ever. Rolling Stone has called Strictly Business one of the 500 greatest albums of all-time. This is an album that I fell in love with listening to it on vinyl that my uncle had. For me, this album is one that I can continue to play from the beginning to the end. The featured video below is one for their smash hit, You Gots to Chill.
Below the video, you can also check out the Strictly Business album from EPMD or you can stream it here. Where are all my old-school hip hop fans? Do you remember EPMD?
