Album of the Day
Rachel de Rougemont and Elana Cager were South Florida teenagers who bonded over a shared love of hip-hop; rechristening themselves Lady Tigra and Bunny D, the pair formed L'Trimm. Named after a then-popular brand of designer jeans, L'Trimm had a sense of style along with a sense of rhyme, and the girls' first album, GRAB IT!, remains infectiously entertaining. The 1988 Atlantic collection is sure to appeal to fans of old school rap with such tracks as “Cuttie Pie,” the title song and “Cars With the Boom,” an ode to autos with supercharged subwoofers that Rolling Stone recently included in their list of Top 100 Hip Hop Songs of all Time. If you're interested in the Miami bass sound – or just want something fun to dance to – seek out L'Trimm's debut and GRAB IT!
