J Rock - Streetwize (1991)

Wow I don't know what to say except that I've been pretty obsessed with this for the last few weeks. It's early 90s New York hip hop with extremely funky beats and a drolly amateurish delivery which never fails to bring a smile to my face. Here's his entire bio from his last.fm page:

"As good friend of DJ Premier he made one album in the year 1991. After the album he went to jail and DJ Premier never heard of him again."

All humor aside, I am amazed that this album isn't more popular (It certainly fetches a hefty price on the collectors market though)
