Sniper Unit – “Burnt Up City”
Sniper Unit f/ Cool Breeze & Backbone – “Realism”
Sniper Unit – “Atlanta“
from Burnt Up City (Conquest/Ichiban, 1996)
More forgotten mid 90s A-Town heat. Sniper Unit was the duo of Big L (no DITC) and Splack Pack/D-Rock dj/producer ternt rapper Swift C. They ran with MC Breed and released just this one album of hyper dramatic apocolyptic post-mobb rap. “Realism” is their Dungeon Family connection track being (I think) the earliest appearance of Backbone and featuring Cool Breeze kicking what would eventually become his closing “Watch For The Hook” verse. Sniper Unit later added Breeze to their lineup officially and re-christened the group The Calhouns. That album was sort of uninspired.
