No one can do it better. No one has done it better. No one will do it better.

I don't think I could have said what "Apeman" said better.

This is another classic west coast hip-hop album. The DOC was ahead of his time and truly "the kid with the golden voice."

Lyrically, he was the west coast version of the great Rakim, with better production.

The album is solid with very little fast forwarding (only the interludes after you have heard them a few times).

It's unfortunate that he lost his voice in a car accident after this album, because there is no telling how far he could have gone as an artist.

Since the accident, he has had a successful career producing and writing for other artists and has been involved with many other classic west coast albums.

For those looking for a history lesson on the foundation of west coast rap, this record is a must have.

Now THIS has to be the single most underrated hip-hop masterpiece of all time. Forget Chronic, AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted, Eazy-Duz It, and even good ol' Straight Outta Compton, this is by far the best thing ever to come out of the NWA family.

The DOC has one of the most amazing flows you could ever ask for in a rapper, and Dr. Dre's production in my opinion is at it's best here. It is truely funky, even funkier than Dre's 90's G-Funk material, this is just as funky as people like James Brown and George Clinton, this is just too cool.

Some of the younger kids might be dissapointed that there is very little cussing, and almost no Guns and Bitches in the lyrics (which I actually really like, since I am not the biggest fan of Gangsta Rap), but don't worry, the rest of the NWA posse (Ice Cube, MC Ren, DJ Yella, and Eazy "Muthaf**kin" E) are in full effect cussing and saying offensive things for the Grand Finale track at the end, which ends the LP on a fantastic note.

Absolutely incredible!
