Remastered from the original masters and pressed extra loud for DJs. There are very few  albums  across  any  genre  that  stand  the  test  of  time  better  than 93 ‘Til Infinity,  the  classic  debut  record  from  the Hieroglyphics crew’s very own Souls of Mischief. In an era where Gangsta Rap and G-Funk  dominated  the West Coast  Rap scene, Souls  broke  ground on a acompletely  unique  and thoroughly west  coast sound.  While  the  Dr.  Dre’s  and  the  Snoop  Doggs were garnering much of  the mainstream  attention,  Souls  were  quietly  forging  a  charismatic, critically acclaimed,  and  cohesively  shaped record that when categorized, sounded much closer to A Tribe Called Quest than N.W.A. The sound of their debut is characteristic of the distinct style explored by the collective, including a rhyme scheme based on internal rhyme and beats centered around a live bass and obscure jazz and funk samples.

93 ‘Til Infinity was propelled into success by its title track and lead single, which reached #32 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also featured singles “That’s When Ya Lost” and “Never No More” which also reached the Hot Rap Singles. In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source’s 100 Best Rap Albums of All Time. Considered by many to be a text book “slept-on” classic Rap record, 93 ‘Til Infinity has only grown better with age. The album simply defines the Hiero golden age with asound that would later be fine tuned with strong releases from MCs Del The Funkee Homosapien, Casual and Pep Love. It takes some serious bravado to name your album 93 ‘Til Infinity, but certainly the goal of creating a Hip Hop “classic” must have been on the collective minds  of  group  members  A-Plus,  Tajai,  Opio,  and  Phesto  when  recording this landmark moment in Hip Hop history. It’s true, even  seventeen years after the album’s initial release manypeople are still discovering it, and with this re-mastered reissue on double vinyl, fans all over the world will once again discover thebrilliance that 93 ‘Til Infinity delivers and will continue to deliver beyond infinity.
