Krondon "The Rules" (1998)

West-coaster Krondon has appeared on a number of records since the mid-90's, most notably Self Scientific's "Three Kings" (also with Planet Asia), and the LJ's (Likwid Junkies). From what I know, he's mostly been associated with the production of DJ Khalil (Self Scientific) and DJ Muggs. This twelve from '98 was my introduction to him, and typifies his raw West-coast delivery:

Krondon "The Rules" 12"

Unlike a lot of West-coast underground, he definately sounds West-coast, which could be a positive or negative to some. The sampled hook should satisfy any East-coast-first heads (like myself), Biggie self-assuredly saying "y'all know the rules". Like the beat here, too, vintage underground shit from '98. Includes instrumental, as well as "Thin Minutes" vocal and instrumental.
