Joker The Bailbondsman – Gather Near, Joker’s Here!! is a classic Alaska rap album/Alaskan rap album which only real OG Alaskans know about. Most people don’t have the album because the album was released on CD and cassette only by the Anchorage, Alaska based record label Inlet City Records in 1997. CDs were compulsory for all musical wants and needs back then. That’s why this album is so hard to find. Joker did it the biggest as he was the biggest rap star out of the AK. Joker was always on his grind. Who knew Anchorage rap could be so dope? Alaska rap/Alaskan rap album is sorely overlooked. Those G-Funk style basslines and synths make the album enjoyable to listen to.
So much dank is filled with those dope G-Funk style basslines, chords, and synths. The basslines are what make the song stand out the most. The song goes hard. Now only real OG Alaskans know about this song.
Fantasies of an erection is one of those low quality rap songs which can be considered karaoke rap due to the quality in Joker’s vocals. The song Fantasies of an erection is about the wet dream Joker had about fucking this bitch. The song is an Anchorage version of Klondike Kat – Check Yo Bitch and Too $hort – Freaky Tales.
Do what you do uses those dope whirly organ chords you would hear in church or an orchestra. Those whirly organ chords have a warped effect to them. All to make the song more captivating.
Stuck in a cell (Baby J live from McLaughlin Youth Center) is an Anchorage classic. For those who don’t know, Alaska was bout it. Only real OG Alaskans know about this song. Baby J was incarcerated at the McLaughlin Youth Center at the time song was recorded. Unsurprisingly the low is very low quality.
Niggas aint ready for this explains how niggas aren’t ready for Joker The Bailbondsman’s style of rap. Joker did it the biggest as he was the biggest rap star out of the AK. Joker was always on his grind.
I rate this album 4/5****.
