Erick Sermon

Double or Nothing

If you have not noticed Erick Sermon is my shit, well early def squad. Double or Nothing is Sermon's second solo effort after his first go around with EPMD. He then ventured off into a solo effort and IMO was a great move. Double or Nothing, released in '95 is my favorite release from the Green Eyed Bandit. Again you get that hard hitting murky shit but it may not be that hard hitting murk going on but its what I like to call hard hitting funk murk cosmic SLOP ish haha. Its reminiscent of Redman's Darkside. Lyrically its a step up from No Pressure with guest appearances from Redman, Keith Murray, & Redman's sister Roslyn Noble. siiiiiiickkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Erick Sermon

No Pressure

Erick Sermons solo "No Pressure" was released a year after Redmans '92 album so It has that hard hitting murky funk shit which is so dope. Lyrically Sermon is decent, there are some tracks where he has some dope & witty lines, but for the most part its nothing that will blow you outta the water, but, it does go quite nicely with his own production. There are a few tracks featuring Keith Murray which Murray drops some ill lines as expected in early 90's ish. Also LOD of the Def Squad as well as Redman make guest appearances, DOPE.
