I know these CD's are almost bout 5 years old now but alot of De-U fans who buy them online out Japan & locally here in D.C. at our Edu-Basics kiosk in P.G. Plaza Mall believe this LP is a timeless classic & keep asking me to post it on my blog so here you go...happy now!!!
De-U Records is a DC based indie label that's run out of De-U studios in Fort Washington, MD. De-U is mostly made up of family members & close personal friends. The F.A.M. includes three cousins myself De-U.c.e. Double, E One Letter, & MLG; along with Zo, DP, & SP we formed De-U Records, Inc. & the group The F.A.M. in the year 1999. Ever since we moved the studio out of the basement & released "Multiplication Hip-Hop" in the year 2000 we've been selling/manufacturing CD's, doing audio/video production, studio/live engineering, rapping, songwriting, live performances, voiceover work, & much more for De-U Records; as well as many other local artists. We at De-U are the original creators, engineers, producers, manufacturers, sellers, promoters, & voices behind the nationally successful "Multiplication Hip-Hop" CD/DVD/concert series & "Edu-Basics" childrens learning products. De-U Records has a wide variety of talent in many genres. Since 2000 De-U Records' Hip-Hop, Gospel, R&B, & Children's music combined has sold over 150k units 95% of which were sold by The F.A.M. themselves right out of the trunk!!! De-U's relentless parking lot & street corner pavement pounding along with the release of The F.A.M.'s debut LP helped spark the beginning of a new era of professionalism & creativeity in DC's Hip-Hop music scene. This CD is trend setting, hard hitting, & thought provoking. De-U.c.e. Double himself produced three tracks on this CD, "So Sick", "Real Life", & "Roll Wit Real". The rest of the songs are created by one of the hottest & newest music producers, Alonzo Powell (Zo) of De-U Records. The F.A.M.'s 1st group LP "Rookie of the Year" is an instant classic, it's hot, & it's a must have for any true Hip-Hop fan!!!
