Anyone remember these guys?

I only ever heard one song by them, Going All Out and damn it was a tune!

Did they have any other good stuff out?

Cheers

Oh yeah I remember them, they're from my neighborhood of Washington Heights/Spanish Harlem, one of few Dominican groups seen in Hip Hop history. I wondered what happened to them, like other missing Beatnut affiliates.

^My favorite song by them, they paint a picture of the hood and everyday stories about getting money on the corner as a part of street survival.

they released a bunch of 12"s in the nineties, but never put out an album. here's a list of all of the singles they released:

Only track I've ever heard from them. I know DJ Premier did a remix to that song aswell. When I first heard the song was in the mid 90's and only had it on cassette tape. In 2002 a friend knew who it was and I barely found an mp3 for it. Seems now things are easier to find these days and thanks for making this thread because these guys sound nice.

Going All Out is definatly a underated classic, The songs they had on the Dj Honda's albums were good too and also that song Treats from the Beatnuts CD

Thanks for the info guys, disappointing to see they never released an album, they definitely had the skill to do so.
