Ill Mannered Posse
IMP, The Ill-Mannered Posse, Ill Mannered Posse
I.M.P., which stands for Ill Mannered Posse, is a legendary gangsta rap group from San Francisco, CA, active from the late 80's to the mid-late 90's.
Original members were Cougnut, C. Fresh, D.J. Ill Chill, Hitman Stinge and M.C. Louie Lou. Dre Dog (later known as Andre Nickatina) also made a short stint in the group around 1993 before going solo.
The group releases several albums, including the classic "Back In The Days" in 1993 and the masterpiece "Ill Mannered Playas" in 1996, which perfectly showcases Cougnut's lyrical skills and raspy voice over hard gangster tracks with a sometimes laidback feel laced by T.C., Race, Reg and The Enhancer. Timeless release, which would be their last...
The group vanished in 1996 and in 2001, Cougnut died in a car accident in Daly City, CA.
I.M.P. is often reffered as one of the best Bay Area groups in the 90's.
