Dope Underground UK Hip-Hop crew recorded in 1992-1993.
Consisted of members B-N-W, MC A.M., Royal T, Boy Wonder & DJ Ruthless.
Neighbourhood Threat EP re-released in 2014.
Containing rugged production, firing horn sections, fast raps, caustic deliveries and unashamed local accents. The sound sits somewhere between The London Posse, Demon Boyz and Cypress Hill. No official releases exist and apparently no billed gigs were ever played. Nonetheless, it comfortably ranks amongst bonafide UK Hip Hop classics of that era and can be considered a part of UK Hip Hop heritage. An artefact. A relic from a long forgotten era, from a crew who loved doing what they did, and did it for the love alone. An important piece of history, that never happened whilst simultaneously happened in the most real way possible and embodies the true spirit of Hip Hop.
Three of these tracks were mixed down by a then unknown Roots Manuva and appeared on a very limited run of white labels in 1993 that never made it to official release. One of these would set you back £75 if you managed to find it on Discogs, while the other three tracks only ever existed on a cassette and are being released for the first time ever.
