Two years before their platinum-selling breakthrough, THE SCORE, the New Jersey trio also known as the Tranzlator Crew hit the scene with 18 decidedly harder boom-bap tracks built on high-energy shout raps. On bass-heavy and fevered drum-fueled cuts like "Nappy Heads," "Recharge," and "How Hard Is It?" Wyclef, Lauryn, and Pras let loose frantic tag-team flows reminiscent of early-'90s crews like Fu-Schnickens and Leaders of the New School, while the laidback, acoustic guitar-driven beat of "Vocab" and the dancehall-infused "Temple" would give inklings of the group's later direction.
