Odd Squad – Fadanuf Fa Erybody (1994)Standouts: “Here To Say A Lil Somethin” “Smoken ‘Dat Weed” “Jazz Rendition”
Some things in this world are so incredible, so beautifully akin to perfection, they can only happen once in a lifetime. That thing is Odd Squad’s only album, which introduced Devin The Dude along with Rob Quest and Jugg Mugg. Devin’s ideas and hooks power the project, which flies dangerously close to Rap-A-Lot’s Doggystyle in terms of consistency. Every song sounds like the audio equivalent of a night out on the town, and that might not be a coincidence, since Quest, the main producer on the album, was something of a homebody after becoming blind at a young age.
Odd Squad recorded a second album, but it was full of subtle jabs at their label, and Scarface was allegedly keeping Devin from recording with the group because ‘Face was poaching him for Facemob’s album as well as preparing him for a solo career. It’s an ironic shame – Fadanuf Fa Erybody is notoriously known as Scarface’s favorite Rap-A-Lot release.
