4 Give My Sins
Label: Island Records
A New York duo down with the Gang Starr Foundation, Group Home's classic 1995 debut was produced entirely by DJ Premier. While butter beats are his specialty, Primo outdoes himself, lacing Malachi and Lil Dap with extraordinarily nice instrumentals. The rhymes are simple and straight-up, but they work perfectly. Check "Supa Star" and "2 Thousand."
