Funkmaster Flex, who is one of hip-hop's most influential DJs, enlisted the help of his longtime partner and friend, Big Kap, for THE TUNNEL, an album inspired by the legendary New York City club that has spawned some of hip-hop's best live performances. Keeping an ear to the streets, the Flex/Kap collaboration features an all-star lineup, including Mary J. Blige, Cash Money Millionaires, and the Ruff Ryders. With Big Kap shouting his trademark vocals over the tracks, the album has a live "mixtape" feel to it, though the songs are studio-recorded. With Flex responsible for the majority of its production, the album bumps from beginning to end. Dre and Eminem's guest appearance on "If I Get Locked Up" is a classic.
What the critics say...
Q (4/00, p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...a more turntable-oriented and less 'produced' sound than has become common...and it's faster-moving and harder-hitting precisely because of that. It's been some time since hip hop's sounded like this."
CMJ (12/20/99, p.26) - "...[Funk Flex] comes strapped with the hottest freestyles and exclusives from the biggest names in the game....features new verses by Ruff Ryders, Eminem and Dre, Prodigy & Kool G. Rap, Raekwon and LL Cool J, along with a classic live freestyle between Tupac and Biggie."
