Wasted Potential Part 2: Duh Mickztayp
Anyone who listened to local music in Las Vegas between 2002 and 2004 knew about Tha Polar Bear MC's, a comedy rap group known for rapping ridiculously funny lyrics over top notch, original rap beats, all while wearing funny costumes and doing skits and dances. When the demand for shows and a second album grew too strong, though, some of the members had to part ways due to personal obligations. Out of the ashes of Tha Polar Bear MC's came Mc Randumb & Jewish Dave. Jewish Dave had always been the group's leader, as well as creator, producer and manager. The fall of the original lineup wasn't going to stop him from writing and recording, so he teamed up with the group's biggest star. MC Randumb is a maniacal, high-energy character, best described as somewhat of a rapping mix of an 80\'s heavy metal group and the Tasmanian Devil. Together, the duo bring to the world a sound that is a cross between Mobb Deep and the Jack Black-fronted comedy rock group Tenacious D. The music is scary, eerie and menacing with a hardcore beat that any true rap fan will love. The lyrics are ridiculously over-exaggerated, cliché-filled gangsta rap about murder, street life, animals and sex... in no particular order! Mc Randumb & Jewish Dave were getting ready to release a debut album titled "Doggy Partz" when MC Randumb ended up having to move away to pursue real life. It was to be the follow up to their "Wasted Potential" EP, released in December 2004, as well as the original Tha Polar Bear MC's (aka The Killa Korpse Gangstaz) LP, "I Hope U Melt," released in September 2002. Since they won\'t ever have the time to finish the album, they decided to release this album, \'Wasted Potential 2: Duh Mickztayp\' as a way of releasing all the music they had previously worked on (it includes most of the songs that were on the first \'Wasted Potential EP\' as well as all the new songs they had finished for \'Doggy Partz\' and more). After 3 \'reunion\' shows, Mc Randumb & Jewish Dave have slowed down a bit on the live performance front. After all, it\'s hard to schedule shows when Jewish Dave lives in Las Vegas and MC Randumb lives outside of Portland. But once a year for the rest of time, you will be able to pass a dingy bar and hear the words \'Murda You Mothaf***az, Murda Murda You Mothaf***az\' coming from the dark insides and know, that you shouldn\'t be scared... You should smile... But then you should probably be scared of that guy with the knife...
