Spank Rock: YoYoYoYoYo
Buy! - (Big Dada)
This Baltimore crew offers up one of the freshest hip hop debut albums in quite awhile. Lead rapper MC Spank Rock throws down playful, often raunchy raps over an adventurous mix of electro, ‘80s Miami Bass and other booty-shaking old-school styles, combined with British grime, funky post-punk and generous heaps of Beastie Boys along with some Neptunes, and then spiced with an eclectic variety of samples. The end result is a rare combination of head-spinning innovation and party-rockin’ fun. 4/5/2006 - Don Yates
