Tha Alkaholiks “L.A. Law ”

Tha Alkaholiks “Niggaz Ain't Laughing No More”

Tha Alkaholiks “We Gets Funky”

Tha Alkaholiks “Wadadadang”

Tha Alkaholiks “Welcome to the Grooveyard”

Great early work from the L.A.-by-way-of-Ohio trio before they apparently realized E.S.P., a.k.a. Everyday Street Poets, (not the spoken-word-nightmare-sounding Educated Street Poets, as some have written) was a handle too staid and generic to describe their infectious rhyme revelry. Subject matter-wise, neither could demo digs at haters (“Niggaz Ain’t Laughing No More”), gold diggers (“Wadadadang”), or crooked cops (“L.A. Law”) dampen the pre-Loud Liks’ party groove.
