Baby Blak – Once You Go Back


PHILADELPHIA, PA 2003- After almost a decade of mashing it up as one-

half of the renowned Philly duo, ILL Advised (alongside partner Mr. Lish –

the pair made the pages of the VIBE History of Hip Hop book), Baby Blak

steps out on his own with the release of his solo debut – Once You Go

Blak on BBE/Rapster,

Fans of the the label collaboration will remember Blak from DJ Jazzy


2002ís The Magnificent. On this long playing autobiography, Blak

displays superlative lyricism, with dramatic beats supplied by a host of

producers, readers of the BBE small print will have already met some of

them. The final album is mixed by DJ Revolution.

This is a collection of 17 tales starting with his birth in a tough West

Philly neighbourhood, Blak takes us on a journey through an urban hip

hop landscape. The whole album is a high point, but along the way be

sure to check out the ëbig band hip hopí flavour onë Starviní Artist, the

ëreggae hip hop vibeí on Daddy Dearest and the ëDisco hip hopí of


ëIf William Shakespeare grew up in the streets of West Philly, he still

wouldn’t hold a candle to my man. With an incredible command of the

English language and lyricism so tight it should hold a patent, Once You

Go Blak sets a delectable new hip hop standard. Far from jiggy yet

refusing to be categorized as a member of the “slumber-underground,”

Blak reps the middle ground – a place where confidence, the hustle,

politrix and independence reigní
