ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
O.B.L. is the collective of Drifta, Justus and Stoutamire. Drifta is one of the dopest lyricists in the area, with an ear for a different sound, not content to emulate recent hits like some acts unfortunately do. Justus is a profound lyricist and songwriter. Stoutamire is one of the illest lyricists in CT, his rhyme skill only matched by his beatmaking prowess. O.B.L. came together for one reason: to make hot music and not sound like any of the latest flavors of the month. Their goal is to make timeless hip hop classics. Studio "gangstas", your nightmare has come to life: O.B.L. is here now. Neck brace sales are sure to rise because heads coast to coast will be nodding to this!

The meaning behind the title Dirt, Gravel & Grime is self-explanatory. The trio take you on a musical ride through the dirt and the grime of their struggles. Stout's eerie baritone provides the gravel. O.B.L. are adept at meshing with any style, given their background and diverse tastes. Despite living in the Northeast, there is also a distinct Southern flavor to their flow as witnessed in the songs "Feelin' Me" and "Do Whatcha Do". They touch upon relationship problems in the heartfelt "Understand", and address the constant harassment in the hood on "Profile". Kathy "Chula" Rosado lends her vocals on "Feelin' Me". Rasheem Dixon adds his soulful voice to "Understand". Throughout the rest of the album, you can hear the smooth vocals of B. Byrd on "Profile", and the smoking - hot first single "Club On Smash". H-Bomb appears on the DJ Stress - produced banger "Eyes Wide Shut", and 40 Barz adds an energetic verse on "We Talkin' Ta You". Stoutamire's eardrum (and speaker) splitting production shines throughout this debut album.
Unlike a lot of groups these days, there are no solo songs on this debut album, and it is not chock full of big name guest appearances. O.B.L. prefers to let the music speak for itself. Definitely one to keep in your disc changer.

OBL is a set of the dopest lyricists in the game.
Dope, Fire, Hot, Phat, The Joint. I think that you get the picture.

A Classic!
"Dirt, Gravel & Grime" is a collection of songs with hot tracks, great hooks and thoughful lyrics with a message.

Official Big League is skilled at what it does, although Kanye West’s social com
Official Big League is a trio that probably cares just a little bit too much about the music business and not nearly enough about the music itself. Its Dirt-Gravel-Grime CD is also relatively profane, with four tracks that come in both dirty and radio versions. But to its credit, at least you can skip over the naughty stuff if such R-rated material offends you.

The group’s unhealthy music business fixation is expressed early on, via the second track “Crash The Party.” This song brags about how OBL has a "legitimate" record contract, rather than being just another neighborhood act represented on a mix tape. Worse than that, however, is “U.N.I.T. Untitled,” which is a blatant commercial for the act U.N.I.T., another Urban Ikon act.

This CD offers a selection of straight hip-hop street music, with scattered love songs like “Feelin’ Me” along with periodic skits, such as “Stoutamire Sweat Box.” The latter imagines this CD as being exercise music. In fact, one of the track's imaginary testimonials is a farmer that brags how this music helped him slim down enough to have sex with his favorite hog. Come to think of it, that word picture is far sicker than anything Richard Simmons ever discussed.

Official Big League is skilled at what it does, although Kanye West’s social commentary hip-hip is a far more filling musical meal.

Watch Out World Here Comes the Big League
Most major label hip hop today sounds generic and dull. Most of the records that come out are done with machine like precision and have no heart. For the best hip hop today one has to search it out in the underground and on independent labels. It’s on those small labels where the quality artists and those with heart reside. Most of the labels are run by fans and producers themselves and they pour their souls into everything they release.

Urban Ikon is one such label that’s busy providing fantastic edgy hip hop for the underground masses. It’s latest release, OBL’s Dirt-Gravel-Grime is an excellently produced gritty album with fierce beats and blazing rhymes. OBL sound like the Wu-Tang Clan meets N*E*R*D meets De La Soul and Dirt-Gravel-Grime is on a mission to conquer all who oppose it.

The songs on Dirt-Gravel-Grime are just as good as anything on the radio today if not better and what sets them apart is the hunger, frustration, and desire of their creators. Songs like, “Profile,” “Club on Smash,” and “We Talkin 2 U,” are hits waiting to happen and should be huge.

Official Big League is a crew on the verge. They’ve got everything it takes and then they’ve got even more. They’ve got the rhymes, they’ve got the desire, and they’ve got an exceptional record with Dirt-Gravel-Grime. They can’t fail in their mission to conquer the world. Watch out world here comes the Big League!
