Lost Boyz

With tight production and a breezy, block-party beat, this Queens, N.Y.-based rap quartet has set heads bopping this summer in the parks, in Jeeps and on the dance floor. The party slows down for the somber "From My Family to Yours (Dedication)," in which the Boyz lament inner-city mayhem and pay homage to slain rappers Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. And on "Beasts from the East," the group jams with hip-hop heavyweight Redman, wordsmith Canibus and the 14-year-old rapping prodigy A+. On their second album, Lost Boyz have found their way clear to a compelling vision of hip-hop unity. (Universal)
