    With legendary NYC DJ Funkmaster Flex in his corner, the raspy-voiced Bronx MC Nine released his debut album in 1995. The self-proclaimed straight-out-the-gutter MC tattoos his rabid delivery and distinctly salacious lyrical bravado all over the album. The song that got the buzz going for this alley cat was "Whatchu Want," a slick radio-friendly joint despite its street mentality; the rest of the album belies the crossover appeal of this track. Nine's lyrics scratch, thrash and claw on tracks like "Redrum" and "Everybody Won Heaven." The infectious, uneven groove supplied on "Redrum" is the artist at his grimy, lowdown best. The Spinners' classic '70s soul tune "I'll Be Around" is the driving impetus behind arguably the best track on the album, "Any Emcee." It's smooth ruggedness pays homage to the B-Boy tradition by featuring a superb lyrical sample from the legendary Rakim. Nine's throaty, expressive vocal tone gives this album a distinctively rugged slant. While far from a classic, is an under-appreciated album from an underrated artist.

    Hardcore fans know his album 'Nine Livez" is fucking solid. IMO both of his LP's are extremely overlooked, and bang from beginning to end. Another review said he tried to make a comeback in 2000 with a track "It's Ugly". Anyone remember it, or even have it? Upload that shit, fucker.

    Funny thing is, with a lot of these not-so-popular albums, you can find em at pawn shops for mad cheap sometimes. My brother forund a Co-Flow Funcrusher Plus for a dollar back in the day before it was re-released.
