Funkdoobiest – Which Doobie U B? (Immortal)
Highlights: “The Porno King,” “Bow Wow Wow,” “I’m Shittin’ On ‘Em”
Cypress Hill is responsible for turning a lot of heads onto rap in the early '90s, but those same heads might not know about Funkdoobiest. Son Doobie, DJ Ralph M and Tomahawk Funk were Latinos from L.A. looking to break into hip-hop, and DJ Muggs was their in. He was the architect behind the group, although DJ Ralph M, DJ Lethal, and T-Ray all produce tracks on the album. Which Doobie U B? is a mix of everything, like an East meets West sound. It was a slick sound similar to Cypress Hill’s, but without the mainstream spins that made Cypress such a turning point. All the better for newcomers to discover 20 years later.
