Hijack – Hold No Hostage [1988]

The headline track from Hijack’s very first release and what a way to kick off the legend of one of the UK’s biggest Hip hop acts. Its all about Sly’s cracking MC delivery with this one, the breaks are grand, but Kamanchi Sly just rips your face off with proper lyrical gymnastics. Classic.

From Discogs
Hard, hard UK rap 12.

At a time (when is this not the case) when British rap was not hitting the same level as their US counterparts. These guys came along and hit so hard. Sitting on album covers with gas masks on and ninja swords way before Wu Tang clan, delivering hard, fast, funky rap, Komanchi Sly cutting through the beats with impecable delivery. Undercover, transforming and cutting up noise over the sledgehammer breaks

And it was from the UK, made you feel proud that we could do this rap thing as good the US.
