B.U.M.S. - Elevation (Free My Mind)

Brothas Unda Madness stirred things up on the stagnant West Coast platform in the mid-'90s. With some help from well-known California wake-up show hosts such as the Baka Boyz and King Tech, E-Vocalist and D-Wyze were able to gain a foothold in the West Coast underground scene. Their first single, "Elevation (Free My Mind)" borrowed freely from Teddy Pendergrass' bedroom anthem, "Close the Door," and paved the way for their critically acclaimed debut, Lyfe 'N' Tyme, released in May of 1995. On the album, the B.U.M.S exercised an intellectual hoodlum point of view combining street philosophy with B-boy posturing. The crew's straight-ahead delivery and multi-syllabic rhymes belied the relaxed flows of most West Coast artists of the era. Lyfe 'N' Tyme also featured the underground hits "Take a Look Around" and "6 Figures & Up." The duo also worked with Oakland'sSaafir on the slamming B-side cut "Rain."
The "Elevation (Free My Mind)" video is pretty basic. Old abandond warehouse filled up with guest stars like Ras Kass, Sway, Crazy Legs, Xzibit and Ahmad. There are a few other guests in the video I don't recognize and would like to know who they are. HELP ME OUT!!!
