K-Bomb 'Stories I Know' (12", 1999)

K-Bomb Charlemagne Stories I Know Bump This 12" Hip-Hop Nostalgia

"I knew this kid Chico, from Mexico ... " This is a great record from K-Bomb, with a winner of a B-Side, 'Stories I Know.' Released on Fortress Entertainment & Nervous Records in 1999, the Fortress imprint was run and produced by Charlemagne of the Natural Elements crew. They put out some solid joints at the time & I copped them all. This particular record, 'Stories I Know' has great drums, an ill-storyline and that vintage independent sound. I've always gravitated towards the B-Side over 'Bump This,' but you can stream both below. Sidenote: the good folks at Unkut put together a nice compilation of production by Charlemage last year, you should check that out too!
