180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!
Numbered, Limited Edition Purple Vinyl - 2000 Copies!

Dead Serious is the debut studio album of American hip hop duo Das EFX, originally released in 1992. Recording sessions for the album took place at Firehouse Studios in Brooklyn, New York and at Charlie Marotta's North Shore Soundworks studio in Long Island, New York.

Dead Serious caused an immediate sensation upon its release. The album was a certified hit, peaking at #16 on the US Billboard 200 chart and topping the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for five weeks. Dead Serious went Platinum on the strength of the singles "Mic Checka" and the Top 40 pop hit "They Want EFX."

Dead Serious is available as a limited edition of 2,000 individually numbered copies on purple colored vinyl and includes an insert.

...[Dead Serious] wasn't just appealing; it was also enormously influential, ushering in an entirely unique rhyming flow that influenced any number of rappers, established and novice alike....None of the lyrical clichés that can occasionally bog down even the finest hip-hop artist are present.... Members Dre and Skoob...instead engage in lightning-fast, tongue-twisted word association and stream-of-consciousness rants rich in pop cultural references and allusions. It was a completely original rhyming style in 1992 - one of the reasons it had such an impact both in the insular world of hip-hop and on the wider public...
