Regular price €28.00 Sale


Repressed! The self titled record called The Beatnuts, or more affectionately referred to as Street Level, is the full length debut album by the Queens trio. It was released on June 21, 1994 by Relativity Records just a year after their impressive debut EP, Intoxicated Demons had turned the Hip Hop world on it’s ear.

The cutting edge production is supplied by Juju and Psycho Les themselves, with
contributions from V.I.C. and Lucien (A Tribe Called Quest). It features guest appearances by Grand Puba (Brand Nubian), Miss Jones and DJ Sinister (The
X-Exutioners) amongst others. The Beatnuts garnered commercial success charting on the Billboard 200 and boasts two singles, “Props Over Here” and “Hit Me with That”. It is known for its diverse production, hedonistic lyrics and cover art inspired by Hank Mobley’s The Turnaround. It marks the last Beatnuts album before emcee (Kool Ass) Fashion left the group to pursue a solo career under the Muslim inspired alias Al’ Tariq.
