||We Mean Business CD (2008)
Vic D CD discography Often cited as the greatest one-two combo in hip-hop history, EPMD have been lacing speakers with their unique funk-heavy, low-drum sounds for over 20 years. On their seventh LP together (the first in nine years and first ever away from Def Jam), Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith return with their tried-and-true formula--updated though it may be--reworking many of their most memorable lines and production tendencies into new but familiar incarnations. The computerized funk track of "Roc da Spot" sounds like an interpolation of their classic "You Gots to Chill." Still, the EPMD one-liners are infectious as ever and numerous heavyweight guests (only four cuts are strictly Erick and Parrish) make WE MEAN BUSINESS a 14-track lyrical slugfest. Raekwon, Havoc of Mobb Deep, KRS-One, Teddy Riley, Keith Murray, and Redman are featured.
