This whole lp is dope! Every single track is a gem most forgotten about sadly. The beats, lyrics and vibe represent the 94 era of real hip hop. If you want the ultimate underground album with no fake ass lyrics/lame beats look no further...it's hard to find anything as dirty and so fucking pure. (Maybe with the exception of Das Efx or Pharcyde) But still this is one lp you need to own. Especially for "Wrong Side Of The Tracks" but all the tracks are wicked! No Fillers!!!
