My debut entry features a group that I consider to be a hidden gem. Maybe it's just because I'm a kid from North Seattle, but I consider this 206 trio's first two albums, So It Goes. and Saturdayzed, to be near classic status. Their third album, The Rooftop, has some cuts, but is not as complete as the first two. While the group has it's party anthems (check out the title track off of Saturdayzed, it cracks me up), they also show remorse over their lifestyle ("Happy Simples") and have several tracks regarding political activism ("Oh Well," "If"). On all of their songs, one thing remains constant: their humor, lyrical prowess, and dope samples. For me, I love the opening track off of So It Goes. and definitely suggest copping the first two albums, which they released for free and you can download and streamed below.
