On this day in Hip Hop history, the famous Queens Hip Hop quartet The Lost Boyz released their second album, Love, Peace And Nappiness more than two decades ago. As successful as the reception of their debut album Legal Drug Money, their second album still managed to achieve gold album status, selling over 500K units.
Produced by the likes of Easy Mo Bee, Bink Dawg, and the legendary DJ Ron G, who produced the lead single from the album “Me And My Crazy World,” this LP was a dormant album that came out a few months after the second death to shots of a rapper (Biggie Smalls) who follows the much-hyped beef between the East Coast and the West Coast. Guest appearances such as Redman, Canibus, and A + add to the lyrical diversity of this album.
Cheers to Mr. Cheeks, Pretty Lou, DJ Spigg Nice, and RIP to Freaky Tah to everyone who participated in making this album a piece of Hip Hop history!
