In our thorough excavation of the Boddie Recording Company vault, no record of the identity Doc Rhymin' was discovered. But, since Boddie's manufacturing trickled to a halt in 1987 and these three songs owe more than a little to LL Cool J's Bigger and Deffer, we're comfortable assuming this came out on maxi-cassette in 1987.
Cleveland rap differs from the sounds emanating from New York and Los Angeles in one major way: most of the region's recorded output uses no samples. Copies of Ultimate Breaks & Beats were extremely scarce, leaving upstart rhymsters high on VHS-dubs of Yo! MTV Raps to lean heavily on programmed drum machines and keyboards rather than "Funky Drummer" and "Different Strokes." Doc Rhymin's basic 808 approach does not disappoint as he lets his well-rehearsed cadence carry each of the 12"s three songs with nary a gimmick to be heard.
