There's a War going on in the streets. The list of ghetto casualties grows
daily and includes men, women and even children. Although it has been going
on for 5oo years, the intensity is reaching epidemic proportions: creating a
surreal climate of territorial Occupation. Urban concentration Kamps. From this
environment of hostility, hail the Frontline Officials. Based in Los Angeles'
lower east side- Grizzly Gambino and Ziggy Colion represent for soul rebels
Like true audio renegades they put the sounds of battle to music; bringing you
into their world of violence without mercy. "Run for your gun". Street-hardened
and combat-experienced, Frontline Officials sound an alarm to all
those new age gangsters: who have stopped tribal warfare and have refocused on
the real enemy. Como dijo el homie Duke de Psycho Realm,"...the most maniac
tacked-back locos seeking that War path!"
I know there will be people who won't like this (probably the same people
that applaud California's Three Strikes Law), because incarceration is big
busine$$. For everyone shaking their heads right now, they send this
"Don't hate me 'cause you ain't me,
officially dis you
crews, spectators, critics
who can't stand a real
soldier with lyrics."
Old-school gangster tactics are put to better
use speaking the Truth 'til it hurts- or at least until the earth transforms
to the Redsky. Mob life experiences result from a natural instinct called
ghetto survival... we just bounce to the beat of the streets, que no? Paper
chasin' is an everyday thing in these parts, and just keeping pace with this
fastlane leads to sinful hustles. Even if we do fall off, true players make the
greatest comebacks... mandatory.
On another tip, there's some smooth beats to just groove to; "Treat Yourself
Don't Cheat Yearself" is one them. It's for the ladies who are missing out on
some of that thug passion. My favorite is Stay High. I think this one is going
to have everyone from Cali to Cochabamba, Bolivia twisting one up and elevating.
With 18 tracks on this cd, we get a good dose of their stylo. This, at a time when many groups are dropping a dozen or so songs. But, let me make myself
clear: this album isn't for everybody. It's for the hardcore ghetto militants
(not recommended for the weak of heart, nor the timid of soul). War is War
afterall... and these are the Frontline Officials.
