B.G. Knocc Out & Dresta - Real Brothas (1995)

It's so satisfying finding records like Real Brothas among the endless amount of lesser-appreciated west-coast releases out there. Good enough to be widely regarded as classics of their time, place, and genre, yet for some reason they're not

The world first heard B.G. Knocc Out and Dresta on Eazy-E's Dre/Snoop diss Real Muthaphukkin 'G's, and they don't let go of any of the DPG hate on their first and only album. Everywhere else though it's hood-tales made realistic by the brothers' bios, and sincere as Dresta boldly links Real Brothas to Scarface's masterpiece on Everyday All Day"My diary's sincere, and I'm down with the Geto Boys." Both him and B.G. Knocc Out are good enough on the mic to keep their narratives and reminiscences engaging through Real Brothas' 15 tracks. Helping with that is the production which is all layered, summery, accessible g-funk. I'd give their lyrics and emceeing a 4/5 and the production a straight 5/5, I think
