Kutfather made a run in the mid-to-late ’90s when indie labels were blowing up all over the country. Although much of his work was with Battleaxe Records, “Neva Scared” b/w “Thoughts I Generate” was released on a smaller label, Conception Records, back in 1998. I think both tracks are produced by Jake One, who Kutfather was working with a lot at the time (apparently, he had moved to Seattle for awhile and linked with Jake One in that short time). Overall, both are pretty satisfying displays of braggadocio, though I give it to the B-side for the brooding sample and the scratched hook (I wonder if Kutfather can rhyme and scratch at the same time, a la J-Live).
