Text on back cover:
The cactus stands firm on the desert plain, juicing fluids from its desolate environment. Two solo MC's absorbed and deciphered culture from far rockaway to Bedford-Stuyvesant and, like the desert plant, stood alone. Predators never set it off, for all over sharp thorns protrude. Step... and your mack-daddy license is revoked. All shades knowledge cactus techniques, and jet from ignorance in the desert.
