The Nonce-World Ultimate(1995)

The Nonce was a hip-hop duo from Los Angeles, California, that was active in the 1990s (releasing material from 1992 to 1999). As part of the Project Blowed collective, working with Aceyalone, among others, the duo developed a reputation for smooth, jazzy, classy production, complimented by laid-back, smart rhymes (paying homage to the Old School emcees they grew up off of in the mid-1980s)

One of my all time favorites. World Ultimate was my first introduction to The Blowed and it affirmed my absolute undying love and commitment to West Coast Hip Hop. I hold this album near and dear. R.I.P. Yusef
