12. Fadanuf Fa Erybody!!, Odd Squad
Back when Devin the Dude was D The Fat Square Twista, he brought Rob Quest, the group’s blind producer, together with Jugg Mugg, another local rapper he met in Houston, to form Odd Squad. Rap-A-Lot producer Crazy C got ahold of some demos of theirs, passed them on to J. Prince, and the rest was history.
Notoriously known as Scarface’s favorite Rap-A-Lot album and bolstered with comedy like “Put Cha Lips,” Fadanuf Fa Erybody!! embodies what Rob explained as the group’s purpose: “the way we look at things is a lighter look of life in the hood…we are looking at the good side of life in the hood. We like to chill, kick it, and really we tried to record a party on our album.” Saxes enrich the beats as the regular Joe rappers keep it simple, and listening to them transmits a country mentality; that is to say, you’ll come away feeling like “it’s all good.”
