Street Brothers – Bionic Sonics

Street Brothers - Bionic Sonics

Not taking away from the Sonics of the past including the team that won the Championship but for a lot of Sonics fans the nineties seemed to be the most exciting era. With the duo of Shawn Kemp plus Gary Payton along with key players like Detlef Schrempf, Nate McMillian, Kendal Gill, and Sam Perkins it was a memorable period. Seems like every few years a artist usually local takes a shot at making an anthem in support of the team or to support a playoff run. Although the Sonics are no longer in Seattle you have history and sort of a unknown piece happens to be a song that dropped in 1994 called “Bionic Sonics” by Street Brothers. Nowadays it might be considered questionable the group was actually from Tacoma and as many can remember we were al 206 at the time. Consisting of artists Young Krime, LA Mar, Homicide, Crucial, Dream, Netta, Kay Swiss, Sweet T, Lunatic, and Shorty. The song itself samples hip hop beginnings with Sugarhill Gangs “Rappers Delight” along with samples of Sonics broadcasts. The B-Side of the tape featured three additional songs more expectant of what most think of when hearing music from Tacoma including a early sampling of Sir Mix A Lot.
