Product Description

CD Description

Hot of the success of Jay-Z s Reasonable Doubt, producer extraordinaire Ski was on fire when he flipped Dynasty s Adventures In The Land of Music for Camp Lo s breakout 1996 smash single Luchini aka This Is It . The same year saw Camp Lo opening shows for De La Soul during their Stakes is High tour. Combine that with the fact that Ish aka Butterfly from Digable Planets had cosigned for the group s reputation and would appear on of the tracks (in addition to Trugoy from De La), there became a huge buzz around their debut album Uptown Saturday Night. Fast forward a few months to January 1997 and the heavily anticipated release of Camp Lo s first record, which did not disappoint. It struck the perfect balance between club tracks and underground bangers for the mixtape crowd. Critically acclaimed and fan approved, this late 90s must-have was complimented by the incredible cover art illustrated by legendary NYC graffiti artist Dr. Revolt that paid homage to Marvin Gaye s 1976 classic I Want You. It s hard to believe in the time of Puffy s heyday, Camp Lo had developed and delivered a style of Hip Hop that was not only fresh and creative, but also straight up dope. Flipping intricate rhyme styles over some of Rap s finer beats, the fact that Camp Lo got main stream radio play and love from big time club DJ s is a testament to the essence of what Hip Hop was once about: raw talent and originality!

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS DUO from DA BRONX is PLENTY OF TALENT !!!! 12 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
This duo is from da Bronx (NYC) and it is composed by 2 rappers :Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede.
Cheeba said:"Thanks to all the cats that laugh at my style and then copy !!!"
Camp Lo formed in 1995.
They are most notable for their flair towards blaxploitation in their style of dress and in their lyrics.

Camp Lo uses slang heavily, often to the point of near incomprehensibility. A typical example of their lyrics is:

"Casanova brown, levitating jiggy in da shiggy's / In la hotta car 54 chasin' diamond runners / Headin' ice-bound, where every chilla dime can get / Your Harlem buck strut freezin' world heist Hollywood."

This is one of the best rap records in all the history of the Hip-Hop !!!

P.S:
LUCHINI aka ...
Intro:

This is it (What?!)
Luchini pourin' from the sky
Lets get rich (What?!)
The cheeky vines
The sugar dimes
Cant quit (What?!)
Now pop the cork and steam the vega
And get lit (What?! What?! What?!)

Verse One:

Introducin' phantom of the dark
Walk through my heaven with levitation
From efficient
and these leathers showboatin with Rugars
Flash vines Belafonte vigga
Lets get for what it's worth
As we confiscate your figgas

Cassanova brown levitatin jiggy in da shiggy's
In la hotta Car 54 chasin diamond runners
Headin ice bound, where every chilla dime can get
Your Harlem buck strut freezin world hice Hollywood
Madame Butterfly let me in your house of pleasure
From the knuckle swat shadowboxin catchin black-eye blues

I play the deef (What?!)
Sensations at the Monte Barbie screamin (Cheeba!)
For fillin pleasures at my castles (Blow the smoke out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Camp Lo remains true to its roots 7 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Camp Lo's newest is also one their best with nice lyrics and excellent beats. It's pretty much the best cruising music you can get, even though some of the songs are too repetitive. Especially check out Rockin' it and Park joint

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold Sugar 21 Jun 2002
By Gold Tooth Micky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Quite honestly I can say that this is my favorite CD in my extensive collection. Sonny Cheba and Geechi Suede have the most ridiculous flows in the hip hop world today and their jive vocabulary is so dense it takes years to decipher, and yes it does make sense once you learn it. Tracks like Luchini, Coolie High, Sparkle and Black Connection are so [...] laid back, they make you want to crack open some bubbly and take a limo ride. Production is tight, including Trugouy the Dove from De La doing a bumpin banger on B-Side to Hollywood. Meanwhile straight diamond crook songs like Killin em Softly and Krystal Karrington stay dark yet smooth. Cheeba's got the most distinctive voice and Suede flows are insane. Often overlooked, this old school album goes back like chiropractors in a time machine, and keeps pleasant vibes trickling through your earhole.

Let's not even talk about the production, flawless! this is one major thing that Hip-Hop is lacking big time, ORIGINALITY! If you ain't up on this CD yet, do so, suga' booga'z! A must have for all Hip-Hop tenderonies & mackaronies!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most creative LP's to ever hit stores 8 Jan 2006
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is some perfect any mood hip Hop. It canb appeal to the Jazz heads for it's smoothness and also has some good raw hip hop appeal to it. This is just a perfect blend music that sounds like it could have been recorded at any time by really any performer in some genre. It has many good songs like Rockin It-Krystal Harrington-Sparkling and of course This is It. I saw it in stores and picked up. It's a shame this was really there only release because this is pretty flawless

4.0 out of 5 stars Uptown of a beautiful Saturday Night (4.5 Stars) 9 May 2006
By Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've never heard of Camp Lo until I started visiting this site and how everyone kept saying that this was a good Cd, so I had to check it out myself. Camp Lo (Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede) looks like they've been holding down the party scene of hip hop comming from The Bronx. One song that I like is "Luchini aka This Is It" (I never understood the aka's in the titles) but it sounds like a song from the 70's. "Krystal Karrington" is the opening track that will set the tone of the CD. "B-Side To Hollywood" could be a dance joint to fit this duo's feel of trying to create a Hollywood type scene along with their style. "Black Connection" is another standout track that I like. "Rocking It aka Spanish Harlem" has a little salsa groove to the type of song. "Black Nostaljack" is a good song also. "Coolie High" appeared on the Coolie High soundtrack back in '96, one I also like.

One track I didn't like that much was "Killing Them Softly", somewhat of a track that doesn't fit their style. Other than that I think this CD was one of the best jams that came out back in 1997. It gives you a feel for one of those Grown And Sexy Club settings. Cheeba and Suede come correct on the microphone in this CD. Highly Recommended if you want to hear some upscale party tracks with tight lyrics.

Standouts: Luchini, Black Connection, Rockin' It, Black Nostaljack, Coolie High

5.0 out of 5 stars the freshest group to emerge in a year full of crap 25 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After listening to countless hip-hop groups spew the same macho crap, remake classic songs that should be left alone or use the same '80's samples over and over again, I cannot tell you what a refreshing experience it was to hear Camp Lo for the first time. Every track on this album is solid and is guaranteed to make you bob your head. More Camp Lo, less Will Smith, less Master P.
