CAMOUFLAGE LARGE: HITMEN HOLDIN' STEEL

The first of of 2 12 inches the heavily Wu-influenced Camouflage Large dropped in the mid 90's. "Hitmen Holdin' Steel" is somewhat of a posse cut which credits Ghetto Minds, 21 Guns, Messiah and Underground Assasins as MC's. Producer E. Knight lays down some nicely dusted piano chops with the occasional horn stab. The slighty catchier flipside, "Cocbacda 9", features an ominous organ and piano loop atop a driving, bass heavy beat with only Razen Cain and 21 Guns holding it down lyrically. Razen Cain also raps on "Hitmen" which makes me wonder if the some of those credited MC's are crews or not. Another mysterious 90's indie release and the sole offering from Closerange Records.
