    Not a bad album. Tim Dog although his intentions to diss the West Coast was more so a marketing ploy by the label he was with (Ced Gee spoke about this in an interview he did for Vlad TV) is not the best emcee on occasion with his rhymes on this album but his flow is rugged at best. It can't be ignored he lit a fire in igniting the whole east coast vs west coast feud with his track "Fuck Compton". One thing that gels this album together perfectly though is top-notch production by the unappreciated Ced Gee and a whole cast of others who also play live instruments on the album.

    Tracklist-wise, There are not a lot of bad ones on board either with Tim showing some versatility not only dissing the West Coast but trying to channel Chuck D on "I ain't takin' no shorts" dropping some latent anti-gold digger verses on "Get off the dick", weird suspicious jailbird stories about becoming the head of a Prison (with some homoerotic undertones throw in, again apparently another marketing ploy) about locked up on "wild in the penile" and being downright filthy on the closing track "Secret fantasies" which also features Kool Keith just reaching his apex becoming one of the most eccentric names in Hip Hop. Many of his other tracks are taking shots at mainstream rap in general or how "violent/large" he is. In short, if you love that early Ced Gee production style backed by a rapper with literally no filter, I'd suggest giving this album a shot, even if you need to laugh at some of the outright hilarious stuff Tim comes out with.

      [Verse 1]
      Oh shit motherfuckers step to the rear and cheer
      Cause Tim Dog is here
      Let's get down to the nitty gritty
      And talk about a bullshit city
      Talking about niggas from Compton
      They're no comp and they truly ain't stomping
      Tim Dog, a black man's task
      I'm so bad I'll whip Superman's ass
      All you suckers that rif on the West Coast
      I'll dis and spray your ass like a roach
      You think you're cool with your curls and your shades
      I'll roll thick and you'll be yelling out raid
      A hard brother that lives in New York
      Where suckers are hard and we don't have to talk
      Shut your mouth 'fore we come out stomping
      Hey, yo Eazy
      Fuck Compton

      Fuck Compton
      Fuck Compton (Yeah!)
      Fuck Compton (Oh Yeah!)
      Fuck 'em

      [Verse 2]
      (Why you dissing Eazy?)
      Cause the boy ain't shit
      Chew him with tobacco, and spit him in shit
      I'll crush Ice Cube, I'm cool wit Ice T
      But NWA ain't shit to me
      Dre beating on Dee from Pump it Up
      Step to the Dog and get fucked up
      I'm simplistic, imperialistic, idealistic
      And I'm kicking the ballistics
      Having that gang war
      We want to know what you're fighting for
      Fighting over colors?
      All that gang shit's for dumb motherfuckers
      But you go on thinking you're hard
      Come to New York and we'll see who gets robbed
      Take your jheri curls, take your black hats
      Take your wack lyrics and your bullshit tracks
      Now you're mad and you're thinking about stomping
      Well I'm from the South Bronx
      Fuck Compton


      [Verse 3]
      Tim Dog and I'm the best from the East
      And all this Compton shit must cease
      So keep your eyes on the prize and
      Don't jeopardize my rhyme cause that's not wise
      You really think that you can rhyme
      Well come and get some of this loaded Tec-9
      Bo bo bo shots are cold gunning
      And you'll really be a hundred miles and running
      You wanna play go ride in a sleigh
      I'm so large I fucked Michel'le
      In the bathroom we was boning
      You shoulda heard how the bitch was moaning
      Do do do do dooo do do do do do do do
      Shut the fuck up bitch, you can't sing
      You sound like a kid playing on a swing (Fuck you)
      I'm the man at hand to run the band
      That's in command
      You know who the fuck I am
      Tim Dog, what's my motherfucking name
      Tim Dog, that's my motherfucking game
      So whether you think that I'm just a myth
      That riff, the lift, the gift, the if, the fifth
      The shift, the spliff, that's in control, to hold
      To fold, to bold and make an ache and take and fake
      Wooh! and I'm still too great

      Fuck Compton

            Sure, one can argue about Tim Dogs quality as a rapper (or lack thereof). Still there can be no doubt that "Penicillin On Wax" remains one of the true hardcore hip hop classics. Produced by probably the best Hop Hip producers of the early 90's, the Ultramagnetic MC's, this album contains some of the most energetic tracks you'll ever hear. It's loud, it's dope, it's hilarious and most important of all it's bangin'!
