#30thAnniversary – Nice & Smooth “Ain’t A Damn Thing Changed”

The duo Greg Nice & Smooth B released their sophomore album in 1991, more than two years after the eponymous debut “Nice & Smooth“. This twelve track effort is the biggest hit in their discography, with tunes like “Hip Hop Junkies”, with an infectious flip of a “Partridge Family” sample, the sing-a-long “Cake & Eat It Too” or the rework of Tracy Chapman “Fast Car” for “Sometimes I Rhyme Slow”. The super hype flow of Greg Nice combined with the mellow voice of Smooth B created a unique & addictive amalgamation, keeping things fun and party ready on most of the songs. Even if they honestly don’t have the best voices, it somehow still works and doesn’t sound forced or misplaced when it’s time to sing on a couple of cuts. A dope album to get back to!
