Y'all Musta Forgot: Odd Squad's Fadanuff Fa Erybody

Houston's history is dotted with albums that, fairly or un, have been swept aside. We'll examine them here. Have an album that you think nobody knows about but should? Email [email protected].

Odd Squad, Fadanuff Fa Erybody (1994, Rap-A-Lot/Priority)

The Odd Squad is what The Coughee Bros., noteworthy for being Devin the Dude's group, started out as. Fadanuff Fa Erybody is their debut album. It's thorough boom-bap, early-90s rap and is remarkable to listen to now. Scarface is supposed to have cosigned it as being one of the best albums Rap-A-Lot ever released. We were not able to verify that with 'Face. Sorry.

Actually, never mind. We'd like to rescind that apology. Nobody should ever have to apologize for not being able to verify something with Scarface. It's like trying to verify something with Bigfoot. Have you ever tried to get Bigfoot on the phone? Y'allmustaforgotability: 89 percent
