3rd Bass The Cactus Album on LP

Originally issued on Def Jam Recordings in 1989, The Cactus Album is the Gold certified debut release from Queens, NY hip-hop trio 3rd Bass consisting of MC Serch, Prime Minister Pete Nice and DJ Richie Rich. Primarily produced by 3rd Bass members MC Serch and Pete Nice alongside Sam Sever, the album also features two tracks a piece from Prince Paul ("The Gas Face," "Brooklyn-Queens") and The Bomb Squad ("Steppin' to the A.M.," "Oval Office") and a guest spot from Zev Love X aka MF Doom.

"Arguably as underrated as any LP in hip-hop history, The Cactus Album is full of great songs filled with intricate lyricism, goofy put-ons, racial nuance and spectacular production provided by hip-hop heavyweights such as Prince Paul, the Bomb Squad along with the group’s primary producer Sam Sever. “The Gas Face” featuring a young Zev Love X – the man who would become MF Doom – is a hip-hop classic that skewers questionable rappers, racism and pop-appropriation. Meanwhile, “Steppin’ To The A.M.” and “Brooklyn Queens” are gravelly tributes to their hometown of New York City and the culture that birthed hip-hop. 

"The album crackles with an intensity and wit that makes it a rewarding listening. For the era, the album was a commercial success earning the aspirant group a Gold plaque a few months after it’s release. However, the album’s true legacy remains in proving that hip-hop could be performed and enjoyed by white kids without the nasty feeling of cultural appropriation that would follow along with the group’s contemporaries such as Vanilla Ice. The Cactus Album remains a seminal album in hip-hop’s growing multicultural influence." - B.J. Steiner, XXL
