Jamal // Keep It Real [video]
just thought about this tune after we saw Jamal on the West Side of the A...& lets just say shit is real for him right now. Illegal album was tuff and he had a dope shot w/ Dallas Austin' but U already know how shit go sometime. Rap is a crap shoot. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. He repped Philly whenever he spit & never slacked on that mic. Produced x Erick Sermon. Album "Last Chance, No Breaks" 1995 Jamal Phillips (born April 26, 1979), rapper and music producer. Started his career as one-half of rap duo Illegal, the rap act formed by Dallas Austin in the early 1990s. Phillips' tenure with Illegal was short-lived; following the lukewarm response to 1993's The Untold Truth, the group's full-length debut. Phillps embarked on a solo career. He teamed up with Erick Sermon of the Def Squad to release 1995's Last Chance, No Breaks, his debut release. The album (produced by Easy Mo Bee, Redman, Rockwilder and Sermon) peaked at #10 and #37 on Billboard magazine's Heatseekers and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts respectively. The album also spawned a pair of hit singles "Fades Em All", which sampled The Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Ready To Die' and "Keep It Real", which sampled Stevie Wonder's 'Ribbon In The Sky'.
