The Negro League
Label: Moe Doe Entertainment
It's understandable that Bay Area's the Team would find solidarity in a pre-integration baseball league. After all, the Bay has been ghettoized for a decade -- increasingly insular, overlooked and (as this CD proves) talented. Led by emcee Clyde Carson, the Team's approach isn't unique -- gangsta braggadocio over austere funk production -- but its execution is admirable.
