Welcome to Underground Fossils, brought to you by Dimxsk and Trylemma. The purpose of this blog is to assist in the sharing of out of print and/or rare examples of the hip hop genre. We believe that every release we post is an integral part of history and deserves to be heard by older fans as well as new seekers. We do not post or encourage the posting of anything that can be bought easily from the artist, those can be found elsewhere. Furthermore, if any artist who is featured here wishes not to share their material we will remove it immediately. Most of the rips found here were made by other people, but some of them were made by us. We are not sound engineers, so while the quality will usually be 320 kbps, they will be recorded from the source material as is. Please message us if you are an engineer and want wav files to master. Enjoy!

PS: We also want to thank all of the women and men before us who shared music in this way. Your work made our collections what they are today, and we are grateful.

J The Sarge - Head Music (2006)

We are staying in Cali for this week's upload with J The Sarge's "Head Music" from 2006. 

J The Sarge is probably best known for being a part of the Magic Heart Genies and running One Wise Studios. He's dabbled in lots of styles (perhaps most notably Dancehall fusion) but I think the early "Head Music" might be his best work to date. 

Sarge has a very Bay sound when it comes to both his rapping and production on here. The delivery styles are very exaggerated and Sarge plays around with multiple flows throughout the album. The content is kept pretty lighthearted for the most part. The instrumentation is thick and laid back at times and frantic and glitchy at times. Various guests stop by as well including Megabusive, Dave Dub, Z-Man, and Franco.

The end result is a pretty solid album front to back. I really would be interested to hear what a follow up to this project would sound like in 2019. Check it out below!
