Schoolz Of Thought - Rationalize/Human Condition 12" (1999)

No, Your eyes don't decieve you....
Yes, Your's truly has joined 12-Inchers in the crusade to bring dope, forgotten 12-inch singles to your ears....

The single I've chosen to shed light on as my introductory entry is for a request, but nonetheless dopeness. I present to you Rationalize b/w Human Condition by Schoolz Of Thought. This 5-man group consists of 3 emcees: Intense, Syntax, & Speaque-Ezie (Speak Easy) and 2 DJs: Bronze-F.M. & Skratch (of the Roots).

Rationalize b/w Human Condition + (Instrumentals)

The A-side, Rationalize has a jazzy feel with a bass heavy background with constant static popping to add to the vibe of the track. This banger has steady lyricism, where each emcee adjusts their flow to ride the beat exceptionally. The real gem of this 12-Inch (in my opinion) is the flipside, Human Condition. I mean the title says it all, emcees Syntax & Speaque-Ezie talk about the current state of people and how shit is fucked up in general. Syntax rips the hell outta the track, and Speaque-Ezie kills the rhyme scheme nearly rhyming every bar with the syllable 'shun'. But the cherry on top for this track is the hook, it complements the dope verses very well...

It's the Human Condition
Science To Religion
The After-Life Of Life We Livin'
Split Decision, Another Division
Sectioned off in Mental Prision
Heat up like Nuclear Fission
Relate and Listen


Enjoy the sounds and peace to DJ Espionage for asking me to join this superb blog.....
