Re-enacting vintage Yo MTV Raps! on a Tuesday afternoon, with “That’s When Ya’ Lost It” and “93 Til Infinity” back-to-back. In hindsight, there was really nothing occluding Hiero from developing into a West Coast Wu-Tang, rather than the upper middle class man’s Boot Camp Click. Certainly three-time all-stars (93 Til Infinity, Fear Itself, 3rd Eye Vision), but just short of the Hall. The Del-produced, “That’s When Ya’ Lost It,” should have been a propitious harbinger, not a high-water mark.
