Here is one of my favorite LP's. Its by Centa Of Da Web and it was released in 1996 on Centrifugal Phorce Records. Centa Of Da Web consists of three MC's, Da Cryptic One, Molecule, and Whichcraft and they are NYC based group. This LP jump started the movement of the huge hip hop crew, The Atoms Family. At it's start the Atoms Family consisted of close to 30 members. The members of Centa Of Da Web along with Jest One and Alaska were the founders of the Atoms Family. Some early members were Osiris, Analytic, Void, Apathy, Konfucious, Kasm, Delta, Genesis, Poison Pen, and C Rayz Walz. The amount of members of The Atoms Family faded from near 30 to 8. Currently the Atoms Family consists of Da Cryptic One, Jest One, Vast Aire, Vordul Megallah, DJ Cip-One, Alaska, Windnbreeze, and DJ Pawl. The groups Cannibal Ox and Hangar 18 are also Atoms Family based. Cannibal Ox's memebers are Vast Aire, Vordul Megallah, and DJ Cip One. Hangar 18 consists of Alaska, Windnbreeze, and DJ Pawl. The Atoms Family have an impressive discography. In 2000 they released the first album under the name The Atoms Family. That album was titled The Prequel and it's pretty good. After that the Atoms Family started droppin CD's left and right. In 2001 the Euphony LP was released on Centrifugal Phorce. In 2002 this album was pressed on CD along with a slue of freestyles and unreleased tracks. That CD was known as the Atoms Family Archives Vol. 1. Volume 2 was put out in 2005 and features more previously unreleased tracks. There are a few more Atoms Family projects out there like Da Cryptic One's album The Anti-Mobius Strip Theory and the Crypstramentals volumes, witch is a 3 CD collection of instrumentals made by Cryptic one. Well now that you have a little background information on the Atoms Family let's talk about this record. All the cuts on this record were produced by Da Cryptic One. The track's Outer Regions and 5 Lil' Pumpkins were co-produced by Jest One and he's also on the mic in Outer Regions. This album was pressed on green vinyl and it was recorded at Da Crypt in Nassau, New York and all scratches were done by Sugarcuts. I really like all the tracks on this album, the beats and lyrics are all on point, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be Most Can't Comprehend. I really like the Pharaoh Monch sample from Stress. So I've wrote enough and I think it's time you check out the files! Hope you learned something. Leave a comment.

This one is new to me. I love it! That mid-90's New York boom bap flavor is my favorite. Nothing else holds up as well.
