The 25 Best Long Island Rap Albums

25. JVC Force, Doin' Damage (1988)

Label: B-Boy Records

JVC Force gave “Strong Island” its anthem with their underground classic by that name in ‘88. And, quiet as it’s kept, the trio of B-Luv, AJ Rok and Curt Cazal dropped a pretty dope album that year, too. With its offbeat samples, put-on accents and a general air of playfulness, Doin’ Damage had the sort of loose, bugged-out aesthetic that another Suffolk Country trio, De La Soul, would take to greater heights a year later, with 3 Feet High and Rising.
