Digging up the previously undocumented vinyl version of this album still remains one of the best $1 finds I've ever had out of the LA clearance bins. Being a "fast & funky" random/indie rap type guy who is especially focused on production, I'm prone to quickly dismiss a lot of the gangsta rap and G-funk that came out of the 90s because it sounds too sparse, too dumbed down, or too slow. But this album blends the styles perfectly, and to me is exactly how the best gangsta rap should sound -- blurring the line between smooth and funky, laid-back and aggressive. Plus, the lyrics are so casually violent and blatantly misogynistic (I mean, look at that cover art) that it's kind of funny. It's one of those albums I continue to return to when only a good fix of G-rap will do. Riverside!
