Insane Clown Posse – Dog Beats (1991)

Dog Beats is one of (if not the original?) ICP cassette EP back when they were known as the Inner City Posse. Actually, I think this came after Bass-ment Cuts, because it sounds a lot better, and I think even has some rudimentary Mike E Clarke production.

All in all, this is a precursor to what would come with the Carnival Of Carnage record. The vibe (and some of the tracks) are the same, with slightly different lyrics. It’s a great listen though and slaps really hard, some of the beats are not far from what you’d hear on early Wu Tang or some of the more abrasive Death Grips records.

ICP deserve more credit than they get.
