Surprised this sounded decent. The cover and back are low res images from the CD and they aren't even scaled to fit full bleed. The PA logo is comically massive and blurry. Anyway, nice to have this classic on wax. Can't believe this is the only album pressed to vinyl, other than that just singles.

I'm a bit skeptical on the quality of this re-issue. The first thing I noticed is the cover is just blown up, and looks very blurry. Which leads me to believe if they can't take the time to fix the resolution on the cover, then they probably don't care about actually releasing a quality album. Unfortunately I don't have the original promo, or cd to compare to. Do or Die: Picture This is one of those amazing classic albums that people love to steal. But from my honest opinion, on a Marantz PM-5004, Polk Audio Tsx330t speakers, and U-Turn turntable with a Grado Black cartridge, I would say this 2014 re-issue sounds a bit washed out. But I still think it's worth the price. Just a tad bit disappointing.

Yea there is a 2×LP of We Can't Be Stopped with an updated cover with them recreating the original...I've never seen that (except on this site)...I was referring to the recent reissue that has identical OG cover..but pixelated to death....good luck!

But ' We Can't Be Stopped' is one of the best album covers of all time and they butchered the reissued cover....

I just picked up the Do or Die album....i have some RapALot pressings from the '90s that sound good but unsure of the recent reissues.

You got that right. Can you vouch for that Geto Boys We Can't be Stopped reissue? I noticed the album cover is completely different. But does it sound good?

I agree about the packaging...I just came across several Rap-A-Lot reissues (Scarface solo and Geto Boys)....all the covers looked heavily 'pixel'-ated like they just enlarged cassette or CD pic. This album cover isn't quite as bad I assume because it's black.....Po Pimp on spin....that'll make you forget about the packaging....
