This is Compton's Most Wanted's second album and goddamn is it good. Unfortantely Slip was locked up whenever this album was made so he's not on it. It doesn't matter much though because Eiht kills it. A lot of the beats are old jazz and funk beats from Mike T. The album starts out with "They Still Gafflin'", talking about the police. The song after that, "Growing Up In The Hood" was used in the movie "Boyz N Da Hood". "Wanted" mixes Barry White with hard ass lyrics. There isn't one song on this album that is worth not listening to.

Don't sleep on "Straight Checkn 'Em".
