In this unprecedented collaborative released 2005 project teamed to talented brothers from different areas of the United States namely Chi-Town's own Hip Hop back packer named L-Stress aka "Levi Stress" and the A.N.D. Hip Hop purist DJ/Producer DJ Phat aka "the MPC King." As the title clearly indicates this album was strictly "Back to the Essence" of real Tru-Skool hip hop. Back when I first heard it maan was it a break from all the Crunk Copy Cats spawn by Lil Jon back then as I remember. I was playing at Club Envy at that time but I digress folks.(LOL) My favorite tracks on this joint were "Legend in the Making" & "Street Chronicles " Dj Phat put in hella work & gave a clinic on the MPC using his signature boom bap branded soundscape while giving head nodding cuts & scratches that would even make Pete Rock or Dj Primere stop in their tracks. Levi Stress delivers his cerebral off beat on beat flow while verbally simultaneously assaulting your dome with dope punch lines that hit harder than George Foreman with the speed of Floyd Mayweather. Am I bias? Humm maybe! Am I a Real tru-skool hip hop fan? Always will be. Do I know talent when I see it? Most definitely. And when it comes to talent creativity & originality Phat & L-Stress can whole their own with the best of the so-call talent you hear on the Radio 24/7 today. Hate it or Love it that's just my opinion. Real Hip Hop is alive just not always on the Radio. Its alive in the "A" thanks to this ground breaking project..

|This was Catrina's breakout show at the Old Simones, which during that time, was the Hottest Dance Bar in the A.N.D. operated by Anderson's own famous Radio Personality the Legendary Frankie (Jammin) Jay. And yes the show was a success that night yall!!!|
|One of the First A.N.D. Rap Groups on a waxx (Vinyl) to make headlines known as the Break Down Academy, just scroll back up this page and see the picture of me holding the record folks. Can we say Classic Anderson Rap History..|
These two early P. Town Ballers (Pendleton, SC) music pioneers distinguished their unique style from most other artist in the Anderson, Clemson, and the Seneca area in the mid-nineties. These talented two infused quick witty snappy rhymes, combining harmonizing vocals over bouncy tracks produced at the then popular "Keys to Please Studio" of one Mr. Tim Bell based on the outskirts of the A.N.D. Rapper Jamie “Rhyme Swinger” Scott and Singer Travis “Soft Notes” Webb were among the first to musically put the P. Town on the map commercially with their music. I salute their early but not forgotten contributions and celebrate their recent reunion after 20 yrs. In my opinion you both have solidified your names in the cream music history of Anderson County.
