The 30th anniversary edition of U.G.K.'s debut album, Too Hard To Swallow, is our Hip-Hop Record of the Month for May 2022. It's here on exclusive 2LP Neon Yellow colored vinyl, with lacquers cut by Barry Grint at Alchemy Mastering at AIR.


"Despite a boisterous personality from Chad “Pimp C” Butler and a steely menace from Bernard “Bun B” Freeman, the Underground Kingz rose as most men do: from gifted measures despite hard-scrabble surroundings. By the time they were 19, they crafted a crude, yet wholly Southern debut album titled 'Too Hard To Swallow.' The genius within 'Too Hard To Swallow' arrives when you realize it is an album of promising sonic development and two rappers wanting to find their footing as the rappers from their section of Texas." - Brandon Caldwell (Entertainment Weekly, Texas Monthly, Pitchfork and more.)
