Album Notes and Credits
Liner Note Author: Dan Charnas.
Photographer: Josh Cheuse.
One of the most crucial rap labels, along with Sugarhill and Def Jam -- to name just two that preceded and followed it -- Profile began in 1981 and developed a diverse roster of heavyweights that included Run-D.M.C., Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock, Special Ed, King Sun, Poor Righteous Teachers, and DJ Quik. Giant Single: The Profile Records Rap Anthology spans two discs and contains hits from Profile's marquee artists, as well as deep classics and one-shots from the likes of Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, Rammelzee vs. K-Rob, Twin Hype, and Camp Lo.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.64) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[E]ven Disc Two hits hard, especially `Broken Language' by Smoothe Da Hustler and Trigger, who trade off barrages packed with violent images and a love of phonetics."
Spin (p.106) - "These days, it's almost hard to remember that rap was ever so funny, strange, and open to possibilities....So many of their singles turned out to be touchstones..."
Q (Magazine) (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Jeckyll and Hyde are just two of many forgotten names scattered across this vibrant two-disc flashback to the era of Kangol berets..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.99) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[F]resh blood like Nine and Camp Lo ensured they stayed relevant to the very last, leaving a legacy that's as satisfyingly deep as it is brilliant."
