Ahhhh 1992 still one of the most illest years in rap music for me personally, there was so much talent and creativity, different (mad) flavours, skills, personalities and singles and albums and a hell of a lot of "just drop the one album" crews and MC's who just vanished off the Hip Hop radar...

Rough House Survivors were one of those crews...what can I tell you about these kids,DJ Swinn and MC's Dread One, Kev, and Roberto?...well not a lot to be honest, but this album was packed thick with horns, fat drums and deep basslines provided by Tony Dofat and 1 joint produced by Grand Puba plus guests such as CL Smooth, Sadat X and Grand Puba, oh yeah it was full of that signature 90's sound and that is why we come back to it so many years later, it's a shame they only had the one album and it didn't get the push it should have and as for where they are now a days?...who knows?

Straight From The Soul was released on Relativity records in 1992 but it's pretty freaking hard to get now a days, so here it is enjoy it, also Pete Rock did a dope remix for Rough House in 1993.
