24-7 Spyz - Harder Than You

Artist: 24-7 Spyz
Title: Harder Than You
Release Date: December 1989
Label: Relativity

Harder Than You is the debut album from rap, metal, and funk pioneers 24-7 Spyz. The album contains elements of several genres and is the band's heaviest album. The group flirts with polka on "Tango Skin Polka," introspective political reggae on "Ballots Not Bullets," and speed metal with "Spill My Guts."

The band made a video for MTV with their cover of Kool & the Gang's "Jungle Boogie." The song was also remixed into a dance version with extended electronic instrumental passages and was popular on the club circuit.

The album is widely regarded as a pioneering effort in the fusion of hip hop and heavy metal that would take place in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Like many 24-7 Spyz albums, the recording is out of print.
