Kidz In The Hall - School Was My Hustle (2006) ☠

Country: U.S.A.
Genre: Hip-Hop
Label Number: RKS007
☠: Selected by Lass

Yet another strong effort to come out of Rawkus Records' second incarnation, SCHOOL WAS MY HUSTLE, the debut album from Kidz in the Hall, (a duo made up of Naledge, the MC from Chi-town, and Double O, the DJ out of Jersey) is a product of true-school mentality crossed with commercial rap tools. Double O's beats vary from smoothed-out and sample-heavy to dramatic and bass-driven, while Naledge's wordplay is much more imaginative and introspective, his cadence definitely takes cues from mainstream giants Jay-Z and Kanye West. With that in mind, SCHOOL WAS MY HUSTLE deftly grabs a slice of cake and happily eats it too.
