|HIJACK HORNS OF JERICHO Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP
Hijack were a Golden Era Hip Hop group from Brixton, London, formed in the late 1980's. Their first single "Style Wars" from 1988 caught the attention of the British Hip Hop community. Their next release "Hold No Hostage"/"Doomsday of Rap" became an underground hit across Europe, bringing them to the attention of West Coast rapper Ice-T, who signed the group to his own Rhyme Syndicate record label. In 1989, they recorded and released the single "The Badman is Robbin'", which reached #56 in the UK Singles Chart.
The group's debut album, The Horns of Jericho was recorded around the same time, and released in 1991. The group released the single "Daddy Rich" which was popular in the UK. Uptempo, hard beats with some of the fastest rapping you'll ever hear on wax – this album is full of sureshots made for the hardcore Hip Hop crowd.
Numerous samples appeared on the album, just to name a few: "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" and "Apache" by The Incredible Bongo Band, "House Of Rising Funk" by Afrique, "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic" by Isaac Hayes "Night On Bald Mountain" by Bob James.
