In recent years, Violator Records/Management has become a key player in the hip-hop hierarchy; its nest remains home to rap killer bees like Busta Rhymes, Big Pun, and Noreaga, all of whom make appearances on the commemorative comp Violator: The Album. The supa-dupa fly lineup makes for a diamond-sharp survey of today’s fiercest street funk, but two cuts stand out: ”Say What” remains LL Cool J’s hardest-hitting track in years, while the vibrant funk of Q-Tip’s ”Vivrant Thing” proves he doesn’t need the Tribe vibe for slamming solo success.
