Fantastic Hi-C 12": great mixes (including the west coast funk of the "Pit Bull Mix" and the utterly filthy "X-Rated" version) and two worthwhile b-sides. Basically, it's worth what you pay for it for the song "Take A Ride" alone, with the massive beat and the "take a ride, by our side, we can ride, if you ride" vocal hook from Southside Movement's "Save The World". Dynamic, surprising changes, tight lyrics ("My father was an uzi, I'm a son of a gun"), strong DJ work. Give it a go.
