**** of 5

I hated the original version of this song and thought it was a joke but this remix is just too tight it is excellent how Kelly and Avant flow off of one another.

Sounds a lot like Bubba Sparxxx without the Southern Accent. CD Isn't anything special lyrically or beat wise. Awol raps in a monotone and only sings off key. There are some good tracks to play.

Classic bounce Mannie Fresh!!!

 

Tracks have a strong, bass'driven, high-energy groove and some hot 808 drops. I prefer track 2 over 6 but they both bump.

New joint from the "Deceased" 2PAC. Sample is kinda weak but none the less a good song.

Early 2Pac. Older West Coast beats. it is a storytelling album. In my opnion not one of his best cds. However, 2Pac as usual has a smooth flow, but would sound much better over different beats.

*Track 12 is a little messed up.

Early 90s rap style. Very smooth though. A couple of excellent tracks.

The Sticker is pretty good at describing this one, except I think that 40 Watt Hype kicks the shit out of Ozomatli any day. I thought this was a strong album: funky, crisp, politically charged. From a musician's standpoint, these guys are tigher than tight, and the head-bobbin' grooves flow so smooth into the body-shakin' sambas that you can't help but get into it.

 

OVERALL RATING: Freshly-colored groove spitoon. Take a sip!

*** out of 5. They Neptunes save this track. This beat is hot but 504s sounds a little to much like they want to sound like Cash Money.
