CLASSIC VIDEO: LBC Crew – “Beware Of My Crew” (1995)

“Same song in my hood as it is in yours”

Hearing that they’re finally going to release the LBC Crew’s album next year, I had to break this back out.  This song was featured on Martin Lawrence’s movie Thin Line Between Love And Hate. Techniec not having a solo album is one of the most criminal acts in hip-hop history.

Here’s the press release for the upcoming album:

Death Row is bringing the Doggystyle Records original 1996 group’s album to the masses in early 2011.

At the height of Death Row Records’ success, Snoop Dogg was given his Doggystyle Records imprint. On his 1996 hit, “Snoop’s Upside Ya Head,” the Long Beach rapper confirmed this with “Doggystyle Records is now official.” Although he would revive the imprint several years later, the rapper had initially signed an impressive would-be roster of Tray Deee, Soopafly and The LBC Crew. The last outfit, consisting of Bad Azz, Techniec and Lil C-Style would release an album that would never be released, as Snoop Dogg departed the imprint in 1997.

Bad Azz would go on to find a successful solo career with 19th Street and subsequently Priority Records. Techniec later signed with Mack 10’s Hoo Bangin’ Records, also a Priority affiliate. Lil C-Style, younger brother of 19th Street Records founder Big C Style, would later release material through Daz Dillinger’s DPG Records.

Fifteen years after its recording, Death Row Records is releasing The LBC Crew’s Haven’t You Heard? (We Givin’ Somethin’ Bacc To The Street) on February 8, 2011 – this, according to E1 Entertainment, the label’s latest distributor.
