Rumpletilskinz - What is a Rumpletilskin?

To answer the question posed by this Long Island hip-hop cult classic, a Rumpletilskin is any of the three Uniondale MCs named Shanow "The Remedy Man," Jeranimo and Capital LS, and the DJ, DJ RPM. A Rumpletilskin could also be a former dancer for Leader of the New School (Jeranimo), or a former roommate of Busta Rhymes himself (Capital LS).

No matter which group member you're talking about, a Rumpletilskin is a hip-hop artist who left an indelible mark on the face of '90s hip-hop before fading into obscurity, so much so that the group's RCA Records LP has never been reissued in any format. With that said, we're happy to include their song "I-N-I" on LongIslandRap.Comp V1 and invite you to stream the videos for "Attitudes" and "Is It Alright" below, while you download What is a Rumpletilskin?, which we've packaged with scans of the album's review from the September 1993 issue of The Source, courtesy of HipHop - The Golden Era.

This Album is My Shit....
First album i bought late 1993 in Paris

I didn't know them....
I just found the Cover cool.
Also at that time my friends and I were in Competion of discovering new Hip-Hop Artists ... and at the time the Shop La FNAC in PAris had A HUUUUGGGGEEEE hipHop Range of Choice.
This was the Good Time.

Keep up the Good Work.

Djehuty, thanks for reading and for sharing your memories of the album -- most appreciated and relatable. I could definitely see myself being drawn to this cover if I'd have seen it in stores. Peace to the Paris massive.

Over here in LA, me and my homies used to play Attitudez all the time, and I personally played the album a lot in high school. I miss this era of hip hop. Rip Geronimo.
