So… upon picking this 7” up, the first thing I noticed about it was the photo of Notorious B.I.G. on the cover. Being slightly familiar with Biggie Smalls, I then noticed that the title of this record shares the same title as a Notorious B.I.G. song, “Juicy.” Oh wait! It turns out all three of the songs on this record share their names with Notorious B.I.G. songs. Wondering if this is a cover band, I drop the needle on the record. These are definitely not covers, but instead appear to me more of the “tribute” variety to the deceased rapper… all done in a brutal, Midwestern hardcore style. On paper, this sound like it’s all a thinly veiled joke, but the dark and doomy inspired tunes prove to be no laughing matter.
