Easily one of the best gangsta rap records of 1995 — which coincidentally places this among the top rap albums of all time. An immediate competitor with anything Mobb Deep or the Wu-Tang disciples were putting out in terms of rawness, aesthetic, and dagger-sharp rhymes. Dismembered jazz melodies lay an eerie, unsettling backdrop before Kool's often terrifying images of hardcore crime encircle like a black storm cloud of the mind. Though cuts like "Take Em To War" and "Executioner Style" are obviously not for the faint of heart, the truth is that much of the material here is undeniably catchy and darkly cool.
You would be hard-pressed to find more suitable anthems to the fast life of hard '90s hip hop than "For Da Brothaz" and "Blowin Up In The World". Other tracks like "4, 5, 6" and "It's A Shame" would have been perfectly at home on Biggie's "Ready To Die" album, while even the record's sole moment of dispute features a slick appearance by the relative newcomer known as Nas.
All in all, though seriously gnarly and definitely not what we'd call 'party music', this is a completely classic album that hasn't gotten nearly as much recognition as similar titles from other street poets of the era.
