It's a shame Jalil Hutchins and Ecstasy never became household names by the end of hip-hop's golden era. Though they can take comfort in knowing that 1984's 'Escape,' their second LP, is really a stellar example of rap's bare-bones inception.

Tracks like 'Freaks Come Out at Night' (their biggest hit), 'Five Minutes of Funk' and 'We Are Whodini' are so synth-heavy and danceable. Minimal production blends in with honest, low-key rhymes that stay the course throughout.

A forgotten album with unforgettable charm.
