all I can say is that the album artwork is the sloppiest photoshop I have ever seen. This leads me to believe its a bootleg and sound quality will probably be garbage too.

I have the jpg-ey cover, and I also noticed I have two side A decals on both sides of the vinyl. Anyone else have this misprint?

Can anyone comment on sound quality? I've been debating getting this one because I'm not a fan of bootlegs, but the official release looks like a bootleg so...

Where is Rights Society: ASCAP supposed to be located? Is it supposed to be etched? Or by the track listing on the record?

Sound is pretty good but it must be said that the album art is pretty subpar in quality. Honestly looks like a JPEG with a threshold applied to it.

The cover art is a terrible pixel mash. Do not buy!

This clean version is ridiculously out of print (I got my copy for around $25 on Amazon) but if you find it, believe me when I say it's worth the price. They took off a few songs like "The Other Level" and "F*** a War" as well as the intro and "Punk B**** Game" which were too explicit to clean up, especially "The Other Level" which was very sexual to begin with.
As for the censorship, every song left has rerecorded lyrics, including the radio edits of the singles "Mind Playing Tricks on Me" and "I Ain't with Being Broke". The song that has been the most drastically changed was "Chuckie" due to how grotesque the album version was despite not having much cursing. To give you an example, the opening line "They say that size wasn't s***, that's why I murdered your nieces" was cleaned up to instead go "They say that size wasn't it, that's why I angered your nieces". Because many of the edited songs sound so different from the original album versions, they sound almost comical in a way.
I was surprised to see that "Quickie" was left on here, but Scarface did a great job of toning the song down on the clean album (with the exception of the woman moaning still left intact... umm OK then).
All in all, this is a hilarious companion to a glorious album, the Geto Boys at their finest. Maybe the ridiculousness of the censorship is why they since then haven't made any of their other albums clean lol. 9/10

Edit: The beats are also mixed differently, e.g. later fade outs in some songs and the omission of the Public Enemy sample on "Trophy".

The slightly earlier catalogue number Rap-A-Lot Records ‎– SL 57152 (The Convicts album), has the same label design, so the theory of a first run of the pressing with this label makes sense.

Is this missing "Trophy" and "Punk Bitch Game"? Leaving off "Punk Bitch Game" I guess is okay since it's just a crowd participation throwaway but not putting "Trophy" on it is garbage.

This variant has an identical catalogue number and runout groove etchings but instead of the red Priority Records logo, it has a large black Rap-A-Lot Records logo at the top of the label. It still has the wording Manufactured and Distributed by Priority Records but the prominent logo on the label is Rap-A-Lot.

Another difference is this variant does not have the red Priority Records Inc, Hollywood, California wording along the bottom of the label.

The actual sleeve/jacket is identical to the other SL 57161 LP release on this site.

My guess is that it was the first run of pressings before Priority Recs came into the forefront regarding Rap-A-Lot but would be interesting if someone could verify - or provide more info on this variant.
