SHOW & A.G. – Live Hard LP 2008
Show & A.G., esteemed members of Diggin’ In The Crates, first gained notoriety in the early-to-mid ‘90s with two critically-acclaimed albums, Runaway Slave and Goodfellas. Fast forward to 2008, A.G. (AKA Andre the Giant) has been busy keeping his formidable rhyme skills intact, having released two independent solo joints and guest appearing on numerous D.I.T.C. releases. Show (formerly known as Showbiz) is no slouch either, having become a sought-after producer, lending his musical talents to other illustrious members of his crew as well as countless other rappers on the scene.
On Live Hard, Show & A.G. have regrouped after a ten year hiatus to bring listeners an EP chockfull of New York-style underground beats and rhymes. The songs on this album are squarely aimed at attracting the current generation of dedicated rap fans who might have been too young to remember the frenetic joy of “Soul Clap” or sonic beauty of “Next Level.” In addition to converting neophytes to the D.I.T.C. sound, it still serves to rekindle their ties with older Hip Hop heads, already in-the-know when it comes to the boom bap legacy of Show & A.G.
