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.

    oh shit man. i remember these dudes. they had a video for “Burnt Up City” that they used to play on American Rap Makers from time to time. Oddly, I saw the commercial for the album and song more than I saw the video itself.

    Ewwwwyucky at that Calhouns album. damn. At least Breeze stay true to his rhyme on “Six Minutes” and did his next album cover with no shirt. (pause just in case)

    The Calhouns also included Slimm (Cutta) Calhoun. There were a couple of good ONP produced tracks on the album but overall it was trash.

    I am interested in what you are snipping for? Realism is what to do?
