Lab Overview

"They want EFX, some live EFX." Skoob and Dray met while attending Virginia State University, and the duo credits distance as what shaped its distinct style. The fact that they started making music together outside of New York, coupled with Virginia radio not playing music coming out of the five boroughs, forced the group to develop its signature diggity-delivery, and when Dead Serious originally dropped in 1992, the world took notice (and quickly started borrowing). Couple the "flipping the tongue," stream-of-consciousness rap with classic East Coast boombap beats and a knack for curating fun vibes on records, Das EFX quickly became one of the most popular acts of the era. Oh, s/o Def Squad. Check out "They Want EFX," "Mic Checka," "Jussummen," and "Straight Out The Sewer."
