Pretty much an underground classic... Dark beats mainly, hard core lyricism, some good feature MC'S.
Jus allah and Vinnie Paz work really well as an MC duo, why they broke up is not only a mystery but a real shame too.
This is the absolute antithesis of the pop rap, commercial shite that was dominant in the early noughties.
My pressing sounds good and clear vinyl looks dope IMO.

I think it is time for another re-issue, Babygrande Records.

This is one of the reasons why I love underground hip hop, not cause I'm some hipster lame but because these dudes are masters of their craft. Every track is great and Stoupe is one of my old time favorite DJs, he will get some of the most obscure stuff from around the world and turn into a beat that fits JDM style. War Ensemble is probably my favorite track.

great beats but just boring lyrics in comparison to the first lp some superficial esoteric allusions and splatter lyrics I was very disappointed :-( besides the original pressing isn't really good on mine the a side is skipping

So yeah, love the music and the clear vinyl looks amazing but this is just two records jammed into one album sleeve, y'all couldn't shell out and make it a gatefold? Never seen it done like this, it just feels cheap that they did it this way. Plus they couldn't even include a lyric sheet? Lame.

one of the better hip hop records from the early 2000's. any interest in east coast submissions should lead to or begin here.

very excellent record, but a little bit dark. the original is very hard to get by now, but i recently saw a re-issue of this classic.
