Sckool Yard "Fashion Show" (12", 2002)

Shkool Yard is a Hip-Hop crew from Fresno, CA, originally known as Yard Massive. The Shkool Yard crew is a collection of Planet Asia, Kubiq, Shake Da Major and Supa Supreme. Their EP/LP "A New Beginning" featured 8 tracks as well as an instrumental for each. The production was handled by Joey Chavez, Protest and KutMasta Kurt, who also released the project via his Threshold Recordings in 2002. This 12", "Fashion Show" and "Sit Back & Chill," are both produced by KutMasta Kurt and was the first of two 12" releases from the project. In its simplest form, it's hard beats and dope West Coast rhymes. For people that bought the album, it already came with the instrumentals, so if I were them, I probably woulda added a bonus cut or remix to the 12", but dope nonetheless.
