Sermons the east coast Dr Dre.

Everything is professional perfect. Nothing clears out your sub like Sermon bass.

IDK why Sermon is always overlooked in greatest producer discussions.

Word. I don't think people realize how much other producers bit off Sermon either...

angry!

sermon basslines still murder most shit coming out!!!!! between EPMD and and redman alone, his discography kills most!!!!!!

parrish was a fuckin monster, one of the best voices and deliveries in hip hop history in my opinion!!!!!! if youve never heard EPMD in 2010, this joints a good starting point!!!!!!

ima have go bang this shit later, good looks homie!!!!!!!

Yes that seems to be an overlooked one by Erick & Parrish, those are some of the best songs posted up there I could remember. Another fav of mine is Richter Scale where they laced a dope guitar sample from AWB.

I think Back In Business marked a divide point of EPMD's career where they may have gained new fans from this album who never heard their previous classics, and had fans who were wit them from the beginning that were already accustomed to their music by this point.

I think the overlookers of this album were probably the die hard fans who were introduced to EPMD by the power of one of their previous 4 classics. Back In Business was definitely a dope album, but the impact of the others was probably greater on hip hop as a whole.

They mighta been fighting themselves on BIB, the shadow of SB, UB, BAS & BNP were hovering over their work.

Oh and Back In Business was a dope album I was mad excited about this album dropping and sold a lot of copies on CD when I was working in a music store back in the day (probably because I played at least twice a day).

Back In Business is a good album. I like the songs Da Joint, Never Seen Before(also on How To Be A Player soundtrack), Do It Again(they sampled Tom Browne's party classic Funkin For Jamaica), You Gots To Chill 97, Put On, Jane 5, Never Seen Before remix(they sampled Slave's party classic Watching You). I like the album pictures also. I was disappointed in Out Of Business and We Mean Business albums. I wish Erick still had those funky beats like he had back then. That's why i haven't liked his solo albums after Double Or Nothing and i haven't liked his beats on Redman's albums after Muddy Waters and his beats on Keith Murray's albums after Enigma.

I was just checkin some joints from this album, and the K.I.M joint particularly stood out to me. Keith and Red rip this shit and the beat is off the hook. I can really see the Wu tearing this beat up.

Back In Business is a dope album but Business Never Personal is my favourite from EPMD,there is just something about the sound of that album that is timeless to me and I have lots of fond memories of rocking that album in 1992 and will always remember the day I bought the tape.

I was in a different country, as myself and some friends drove up to see Ice-T and Public Enemy, anyway we went to a record store and I saw it on the shelf, I grabbed it off the wall and paid for it at the counter and because I had my walkman on , I placed in that, pulled out the cassette inlay and heard "Boon Dox" for the first time, I was floored and had a big smile on my face, then the cats I was with had got their records and we bounced.

Once in the car I asked if I could play the EPMD tape and all three dudes gave me a strange look, like do you even need to ask J?, so we cruised around Auckland and I was in awe of this album "Boon Dox" again (and mad loud) "Nobody's Safe Chump'", "Can't Hear Nothing But The Music", Chill" etc, I felt lucky to be alive and later on I listened to the whole album and that was all I listened to during our 2 days up there.

When I got back home to Wellington I found the CD and eventually I lent it out to an old friend and he lost it, which was all good (in time), it wasn't until a couple of years ago that a friend sent me another CD from the US and that has remained in the best possible condition.

But back on topic, I remember working in a record store and getting the promo CD of Back In Business and having a listening session one night and while we all agreed that even though it wasn't as good as their earlier albums, it was still dope and it was so dope to see them back.

that's a nice way you recounted your memories of buyin that album, it made me reminisce too after reading your thoughts, 1992 was a year I'll never forget. BNP deserves a thread of it's own.


Another memory I have of Back To Business was when Erick & Parrish performed Richter Scale live on Keenan Ivory Wayans short-lived late night show. I wish somebody had a video of it on YouTube.

Thanks fatboybrandon and hell yes BNP deserves a thread of it's own, another thing I loved about the album was the inlay in the cover where PMD thanked and said to my partner Erick Sermon, what can I say? I think I i will buy a boat haha

I would love to see that performance of Richter Scale, surely it is somewhere on You Tube?

1992 was an incredible year and I am still listening to a lot from that year.

Business Never Personal isn't better than Back In Business. Only good songs on Business Never Personal is Nobody's Safe Chump, Can't Hear Nothin But The Music, Headbanger, Crossover, Cummin At Cha, It's Going Down, Who Killed Jane. I guess that's most of the songs on the album hahahahahahahahahaha. I think there's only 11-12 songs on the album. Back In Business has more good songs than Business Never Personal. Check Two, PMD doesn't need to do anymore solo albums hahahahaha. His solo albums suck except for Shady Business. I wouldn't mind hearing a few more Erick Sermon solo albums but his last 3 albums Music, React, Chilltown NY suck.

sickkk albumm. epmd brings heat all the time, most of their album always have a few bangers on it at the very least, as well as this one. wouldn't call 'back in business' a classic, but its a banger nonetheless.

some ppl still sleepin on them, they needa go and check their catalog out!

I disagree with you CharlesJones;, Business Is Business is a dope album and The Awakening had some bangers on it, especially "Straight From The Heart" and I didn't mind Music or Chilltown NY, but I didn't like React much.

BNP is a better album than BIB to me and don't forget "It's Going Down".

I bought that LP when i was junior in HS I think. It's solid but their older joints are way better. I'll take Housin' over any song on that album. Pete Rock is the East Coast Dre, not Sermon. Seromn's an above average producer fo'sho
