Circa 1990-1993


Charizma , Peanut Butter Wolf


Amoeba Review

BillyJam, San Francisco 12/16/2014

While previous Charizma releases have featured some of the tracks on Circa 1990-1993, this four-LP box set is an exhaustive collection of just about everything the late, great Milpitas-based emcee recorded before his untimely death in 1993 at the young age of 20. He was a supertalented artist who, if he had lived, would likely have become a major hip-hop star. The 2014 box set includes such Charizma classics as "My World Premiere" and two versions of "Red Light, Green Light," along with other unknown unearthed material and rare live performances such as "Live in '92 at the DNA Lounge." It's all dug-up and compiled by Charizma's partner in rhyme, producer Peanut Butter Wolf. It is fair to say that Wolf's whole identity and career was shaped and defined by Charizma with whom he started his hip-hop career.Following Charizma's murder, PB Wolf almost quit (that aforementioned Stones Throw documentary spends some time on this). "When he died I just felt so helpless," PB Wolf told me in an interview I did with him for the liner notes of this album. Back in the early '90s, following being turned down by label after label that didn't want to put out the music of a deceased rapper, PB Wolf eventually decided to do so himself and in 1996 he set up Stones Throw. Circa 1990-1993 is the ultimate Charizma with Peanut Butter Wolf collection
