The Long Isle rap trio comprising MCs Flavor and DL and DJ 6 Seven, followed in the storied Strong Isle rap tradition of EPMD, Rakim, De La Spirit, and Market leaders of the brand new College. In 1994, the three-man group effected a smoothed-out East Coastline timbre in stark comparison towards the hardcore gangster rap blossoming on both coasts. Their preliminary one, “LI Groove,” discovered a distinct segment with cellar hip-hop minds, and their debut record, Ism and Blues, implemented on it’s power. Creation on Ism, in the SD50s (one-time beatmakers for Grand Puba) and Roc Raida, was method above garden range. The album mixed laid-back grooves with the task of some gifted musicians, offering the album using a noiseless cool. MCs Flavor and DL brought abilities to the desk but inevitably dropped sufferer to “blunts and bitches” articles a bit very much. The record rooted in jazz, R&B, and a vintage school hip-hop visual captured a ripple of reputation with the nonmainstream hip-hop market but, rather however, the threesome had been never noticed from again.
