C-9 – Bad Surroundingz is one of those Memphis rap junts that does not get the credit, recognition, acclaim, accolades, and references truly deserved. C-9 – Bad Surroundingz is one of the Memphis rap albums that got overlooked but is well-appreciated by Memphis rap fans across the world. Now his amazing tongue twisting lyrical ability is what made the Bad Surroundingz album a highly sought after classic masterpiece of an album. His ability is amazing. The album featured Al Kapone, Yo Lynch and more. DJ Sound, DJ Paul, and Tommy Wright III produced that album.
C-9 – Bad Surroundingz is one of the many sought after Memphis rap tapes and albums many people want but don’t have. That is because C-9 – Bad Surroundingz is one of the Street Smart Records releases that were stolen when several masters to the Street Smart Records albums/releases got stolen in a home invasion back in 2001. The album C-9 – Bad Surroundingz was supposed to be issued on cassette & CD and released by Street Smart Records in 2001. But the album was never released because the masters to that album were stolen in a home invasion in 2001. C-9 – Bad Surroundingz is considered to be a lost album as not that many copies were pressed up.
Some of you might remember that the upcoming album C-9 – Bad Surroundingz just had him sitting in a car with the album title underneath. The cover was designed by Street Level Graphics in 2001.
C-9 was one of the best rappers to do it with his amazing tongue twisting lyrical ability. Now his amazing tongue twisting lyrical ability is what made him ‘da fastest’ rapper in all of Memphis, Tennessee. C-9 was the Twista of Memphis. He was the ‘da fastest’ rapper in the hip hop game in Memphis at spitting rap lyrics. His flow is always on point.
C-9 went hard on High Speed Chase. This was the most bumpin cut on that tape. It’s like listening to never-ending bars in a rap battle or a freestyle. That last verse will make you say, “whoa”.
The song Memphis Drama is one of the best songs off the album. Memphis Drama uses wavy warpy synths from a lo-fi keyboard and thick beats. Playa Fly did go off and kill that shit on Memphis Drama. The song was produced by DJ Paul, Playa Fly, and Tommy Wright III.
I rate this album 5/5*****!
