ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Team Classick represents the real.

No, not the real as in guns, drugs, and h0s. The real.

Real music. 100%. Fresh, intelligent, genuine, and most importantly, it BUMPS.

Our first mixtape, “The Session, Vol. 1” was released in late 2006. A collective of MCs aiming to provide TRUE hip-hop listeners with an alternative to the watered down music you hear on the radio, Team ClasSick crafted vol. 1 using the time-tested formula for classic hip-hop: Dope Beats, Dope Rhymes.

Following the release of Vol. 1, Team ClasSick has played at several venues in the Los Angeles area and opened for legendary hip-hop artists. The time for the resurgence of true hip-hop against the advent of mindless commercial music is here, and Team ClasSick is at the front line.

TEAM CLASSICK HAS PERFORMED AT:

- THE VINE STREET LOUNGE in Hollywood W/ SLICK RICK
- THE KEYCLUB in Hollywood W/ GZA, DJ MUGGS, KILLAH PRIEST,
and SELF SCIENTIFIC
- THE KEYCLUB in Hollywood W/ GHOSTFACE KILLAH
- THE KNITTING FACTORY W/ KRS-ONE
- CANES BAR AND GRILL in San Diego , CA W/ EVIDENCE AND
ALCHEMIST
- WESTWOOD BREWING COMPANY in WESTWOOD
- QUEEN MARY in Long Beach
- THE GRAND AVENUE in Downtown Los Angeles
- THE COOPERAGE in UCLA
- FORBIDDEN CITY in Hollywood
- THE WAREHOUSE in Marina Del Rey
- THE GABAH in Los Angeles
- THE AIRLINER in Lincoln Heights

VOL. 2 coming SUMMER 2008!

You know it's good when it's hard to pick a favorite...
The diversity of songs definitely reflects the diversity of experiences living in Los Angeles. I definitely appreciate the wide range of styles in one mixtape. It is great to see Latinos doing something big in hip hop! Umm...it's hard to pick my favorite tracks but the ones that stand out to me are: "Lyricist Showcase," "Hit It (Let's Go)," "Ditty (Classik Remix)," "Losin My Mind" & "Imagine." "The Hooptie Song" is too funny, I love it. Great job :)

real hip hop from hungry mc's
this is how you put a mixtape together.....real hip hop all the way...

the best overall songs are imagine, how it goes, i gots to choose the west, get down, the first, lyricist showcase.........

however, there is a refreshing originality throughout the cd (radius diminished, music, hooptie song, ditty, we run the track)

good work team classick....

Awesome....we need a Team ClasSick album
Team ClasSick "The Session Vol. 1" is an enjoyable foray into the realm that some may call "real hip-hop." If you're not in touch with the hip hop of today's generation, then these up-and-coming MC's got what you need. Beginning with "Music (All I Got)" MCs Nemesis and R-Sun rhyme about longing for the days past of hip-hop lore, where "they judged you by your craft not by how you counting cash." The CD continues with "Imagine," maybe the strongest record on the CD. Here, R-Sun makes sure you imagine your life in every other possible way that it could've gone. The next track is a remake of Little Brother's "Hiding Place." Though MCs R-Sun and Spotlight are on point, maybe it would have been better to stick to original material. Track #4 "The Apex" is a short though potent dose of lyrical aggression, where MC Nemesis tells any opposers, "This one's in the fridge, the butters getting hard." The set continues through "The Joint" and "Losin My Mind," two, enjoyable, though slightly more forgettable tracks. #7 "Radius Diminished" is CRAZY. Fafology and especially Nemesis contribute two amazing, lengthy verses to the track. The middle of the mixtape is the strongest part. Beginning with "How It Goes," the next few tracks up the energy level but result in some great tracks. On the track, R-Sun makes claim that "ClasSick's proving Nas wrong, Hip-Hop isn't dead." "Best on the Premises" does much better with the Willy Wonka sample than did those You're Gonna Love Me guys. The "Hooptie Song" is one of the most enjoyable, original records I've heard in a while. Rather than rhyming about the typical issues present in hip-hop music, (Drugs, guns, hoes?) this song is about having a hooptie, a beat-up car. Who can't relate to that? The next song is a re-make of Paperboy's "Ditty" and I must say that Team ClasSick upped the ante. Their version is easily superior, thanks to some lyrical, flashy, arrogant, and straight-out hilarious rhymes courtesy of R-Sun, Spotlight, Deuce, and Phat Frank. The next song is "Get Down," a duet by R-Sun and Spotlight that sounds like a big orchestra is behind them. The interchange of witty 8 bar verses is a high point with Spotlight's "you get my lines like you get pussy, you don't" line the highlight of the song. The producer of this and two other tracks (Losing My Mind and Hit It) is in-house producer Enzo Tanaka, and it seems as though the man has talent. "Hit It (Let's Go)" sounds like its straight out of Chris Martin's discography. (DJ Premier not Coldplay, idiot) The album continues with "The First" another Nemesis and Fafology collabo that isn't quite as good as "Radius Diminished" but makes sure to hold its own. At the very least, this track will be remembered for Nemesis's line, "abolish all your raps, you try to make em better but you can't polish crap." Ouch! The following two tracks are the low points of the CD. The acapella by "Trainwreck" is completely out of place. Why this acapella didn't go is beyond me? What's the point of an acapella if the lyrics aren't the best lyrics we've ever heard? "We Run the Track" is a re-make of a Dip Set song but why would you re-make a Dip Set song? On top of that, hearing Fafology and Spotlight, is like hearing Chuck D and Flavor Flav, since Fafology's lyrical prowess is not close to being matched by Spotlight. However, Team ClasSick recovers and closes the CD on a high note. #17 "Lyricist Showcase" sounds like Team ClasSick's best Wu-Tang impression and is, perhaps surprisingly, pulled off correctly. The apex of the mixtape is not track #4 but rather #18 "I Gots to Choose the West," easily the record most likely to be heard on the Left Coast, as this is Team ClasSick's homage to their home state. This song BANGS!!!!! The album closes out with the "Once Again It's On" remix by KilloMic and HisPanik which leaves a bit more to be desired. Maybe it shouldn't have been the last track on an otherwise superb mixtape. I would definitely recommend this mixtape to any "real" hip-hop fan, and look forward to hearing more from Team ClasSick in the future.

Dope Beats, Lyrics....Songs. Real Hip Hop
Ill try to keep it short...but I just wanted to say that I hope Team Classick makes it big because they are what hip hop needs right now. This CD brings hot beats with hot lyrics. Period. My favorite tracks include "Imagine", "How It Goes", Hit It", "Get Down" and "Lyricist's Showcase". From straight lyrical heat (like on "Lyricist's Showcase" and "Get Down") to songs that make you laugh (Hooptie Song) and think ("Imagine"), this CD delivers flavors that will satisfy any true heads' palates. Cop this and you won't be sorry...
ONE.
