Unsatisfied with the destinction of being the most underated hip-hop duo of their time, Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede collectively known as Camp Lo are preparing Another Heist. Camp Lo made their first appearance in 1996 on The Great White Hype soundtrack, with their single “Coolie High”. The smooth party song was a minor hit, peaking at 25 on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart. Their first major¬†exposure came with the release of their second single, the upbeat, horn driven “Luchini AKA This Is It”. The song became a crossover hit in 1997, breaking into the top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100, and reaching the top 5 on the Hot Rap Singles chart. The duo released their debut album Uptown Saturday Night in January 1997. The effort was widely acclaimed, praised for their light accessible content and their smooth, funk and jazz inspired production. Despite a classic blaxploitation style and sound was far ahead of it’s time.
