Superlover Cee & Casanova Rud
Superlover Cee & Casanova Rud Girls I Got Em Locked Elektra • 1988

Throughout the album they never sound too corny, although it’s a love album. This is straight hip-hop, no gimmicks.

Supreme Nyborn
Supreme Nyborn Style Next Plateau • 1991

This album is definitely the most underestimated album on the Next Plateau discography despite of the scratched samples of the blazin 'Versatility': 'Never underestimate Supreme caus I’m versatile'

SupremeEx & Tajai Present Nuntype Rumble Pack • 2005

'Nuntype' reminds us of trying to watch an avant-garde movie for the first time; tempting but complicated, until you strain yourself to listen to it and then it's only a matter of liking it or not. 'Nuntype' is not just hip-hop, it's music, it's drum n bass, it's electronic, it's lounge, it's a movie, a requiem of a dream or a space odyssey, it's 2025, it's transcending.

Surreal & DJ Balance
Surreal & DJ Balance Future Classic Hiphop IS Music • 2006

Obviously this is an album made by artists who are soaked in the spirit of hip-hop, musicians who are in the first place fans, admirers of their culture. This is a modern album with the spirit of an early Gang Starr album. Whether it will ever become a classic is most unlikely, but actually we don’t give a rat’s ass, as long as hip-hop remains as fresh as in 2006 (thanks to labels such as Hiphop IS Music) we’re a happy few…
