AL TaRiQ`s "THiNK NoT" [12 iNCH]...

Got a nice lil` 12 inch single by Al Tariq, some of y`all may know him as Fashion from his days as a member of The Beatnuts. He left the group shortly after they released their first album because he was lookin` to pursue a solo career. So in 1996 he dropped his solo debut album titled "God Connections" thru Correct Records. The 12 inch that I`m sharing with y`all was released a year later, but both songs on the single are from his debut album...



I believe that his former group The Beatnuts handled the production for these 2 songs, they even make a guest appearance on "Peace Akki". Both songs on this single are bangin`, but my favorite joint is "Think Not"....ya gotta love the beat on that track! The only thing that I`m not feelin` about this 12 inch is how they handle the radio versions of both songs, by simply but annoyingly editing them so the end result is 2 joints that you can`t really enjoy as a listener. In my ears it would just make more sense to rewrite the lyrics so there`s no cussin`, but that`s just my opinion of course....LoL, the dirty versions are the real gems on here so go `head & check `em out for ya`self...
