I got this cassette in 2000 at the height of Rawkus Records fame. I would bring this tape around as a staple to be played in my little one speaker tape-box. I loved the tape, and I think it still stands up. One could easily say it is the rap answer to "we are the world" but the fact is the songs all stand up and are still relevant today. Includes Mos-Def singing on the classic "A Tree Never grown."

With respect to the previous reviewer, if this record has a weak spot, it's certainly not the beats. One only has to listen to a few bars of the YouTube videos for "Protective Custody" or "A Tree Never Grown" over on the right side of the screen to see these are serious East Coast head-nodders. That shouldn't surprise anybody; it is a Rawkus record, after all.

If I had to complain, I'd say maybe 14 MC's on a track is too much of a good thing-- although even that complaint is reluctantly given, considering they each actually contribute separate verses, rather than simply a line or two or participating in a crowd-shouted chorus like some hip-hop version of USA for Africa.
