Bass-ment Cuts is a 1991 EP by Inner City Posse. It runs just over 21 minutes. The album is by 2 Dope and Violent J, who would go on to become Insane Clown Posse, and 2 Dope's brother John Kickjazz.
Bass-ment Cuts was sold first hand by Inner City Posse, their friend Rudy Hill and his cousins, and Bruce's then-girlfriend Karen. Due to the success Rudy had selling the cassettes in Southwest side of Detroit, where the group had its most sales, Inner City Posse decided to call their label Rude Time Records. The group soon reached out to record store owner Alex Abbiss to sell their cassettes in his store Hot Hits. After the success of their sales on the street and with Alex, the group decided to pursue rapping as their professional career, teaming with Alex to create the record company Psychopathic Records.
The album was re-released on CD by Psychopathic Records.
