Sunspot Discography, Part 1

This is Part 1 of the Sunspot Discography series. I'll be posting a short summary about every album and mixtape that's been released under Sunspot Productions. At the end of each entry, there will be a media player where you can listen to and download selected tracks from each CD. To read every entry, check the sidebar labeled "Discography."

December 2001
Album: "Uh... Yeah"

This is the one that started it all. C.Luk came onto the scene with this project that featured the songs "Dummy," "Substitute," "SKITS-O," and "Chinatown Ride and Stroll" among others. The sound was unique and had untapped potential to grow and mature. "Uh... Yeah" was also the beginning of the fan-appreciated tandem of C.Luk working with Right Hook (then known as Jah1Dah [jah-one-dah]). MACH-1 was the only other feature on this album.

November 2002
Album: "HIYA!"

Following a successful first album, C.Luk's sophomore effort had to show evolution in almost every aspect. "HIYA!" accomplished this with quality of sound, beats, song topics and even skits. This album marked the beginning of C.Luk's many run-ins with the BPC character and additionally featured "Flip" featuring Shanks (then known as Point Proven). Other features on this album include 5th Caliber ("Frustrated"), DOMINATION ("World Order, Tears"), and Right Hook ("Cambodian Love").

April 2003
Mixtape: "Spectacles"

Eager to continue building street cred, C.Luk put out his first mixtape featuring all industry beats (no original Sunspot beats). "Spectacles" really got people to notice C.Luk's lyricism. Tracks like "Street Fiends," "Something I'm Not" (featuring Right Hook) and "Why My World Is This Way" (featuring Runna) showcased the conscious side of C.Luk that would be prominent in the future. On the other side of the spectrum, tracks like "Lose Money" (featuring Runna) and "I'm C.Luk" demonstrated his sense of humor, while still being a great lyricist. This mixtape was the first time C.Luk worked with Runna and also debuted the skit characters of Pookie and the Old Man.
