    I have a feeling this record is gonna get more expensive eventually, glad to cop it when I did. Zone is an underrated genius, in my humble opinion, I've been a fan of him for years, and its dope to see that he managed to reinvent himself and have success still doing music.
    This was Zone's senior project for college. The story goes that he could barely get enough people to show up and rap on the project so he ended up doing the whole thing himself, minus Al-Shid, Huggy, Kobayashi and Trip of course. Sonically the album is a bit rough around the edges, but not to its detriment, it has a very DIY sound that a lot of the indie records at the time had. The beats sound like they came straight off of old 78s and 50s cartoons, really brilliant production, can't think of anyone with a similar production style to Zone. You could say that its dating itself with the jokes clearly poking fun at the shiny suit era and the beat jackery that Puff and company were up to back then, but the same things could be said about the over-saturation of trap and auto-tune drenched triplet flows today.
    If you're a fan of that mid 90s to early 00s indie boom, or even if you're just looking for something new to try, don't hesitate to pick this one up. Its definitely worth more than some of the prices on here and I think that will be reflected as people buy the last copies up.
