Not quite rock'n'roll and not quite hip-hop, DJ Logic and former Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid put their own spin on both genres—and more—as the Yohimbe Brothers.

Not quite rock'n'roll and not quite hip-hop, DJ Logic and former Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid put their own spin on both genres—and more—as the Yohimbe Brothers. With Front End Lifter, Reid and Logic have crafted/produced an inspired, multi-faceted album that, at times, is both surreal and comical. Highlights include the reggae-inspired "$moke and Du$t Dub (Version)" and the ethereal "Just a Little Screwy." Prince Paul (via his Handsome Boy Modeling School alter-ego Chest Rockwell), Slick Rick, and the other members of Living Colour turn up on the funk-fortified "6996-Club-Yohimbe." For listener convenience, the duo has even graciously provided nine suggestions to better enjoy the 15-track set. How thoughtful.—RH
