Intervallum 35 - Suspended In Time

Group Home - Livin' Proof

In the early to mid-90's, DJ Premier could do no wrong. Building on his legendary production work on Gang Starr's "Daily Operation" (1992) and "Hard to Earn" (1994), Jeru's classic "The Sun Rises In the East" (1994), and Nas' seminal "Illmatic" (1994), he released perhaps his last classic effort with Group Home's "Livin' Proof". Lil' Dap and Melachi the Nutcracker were the last of the Gang Starr Foundation to release a record (Big Shug was also member, but he seemed to get lost in the shuffle), and it seems that Primo kept some of his best beats for last. Songs like "Supastar", "Tha Realness", "Suspended In Time", and "Livin' Proof" prove that nobody could touch him in the arena of gritty NYC boom-bap.

I agree on the Primo comments. I can't condone the lack of expertise that the duo shows on the mic, though. I like your site, nice blog you got here, be sure to check out my reviews at when you get a chance, thanks. (I actually reviewed 'Livin' Proof' a while back, so I'd appreciate your comments.
