Time Waits For No Man
Label: EMPIRE Online
A quintessential West Coast underground LP, Time Waits for No Man establishes San Francisco emcee Rasco as a major force. The record's production is a variation on DJ Premier's meat-and-potatoes hip-hop: raw breaks, understated samples, and cut in choruses. Rasco is a limited but satisfying lyricist, eschewing narratives for quick witticisms and bursts of bravado.
