DJ albums have never been succesfull. While underground heads easily recognize deck skills, an average hip-hop fan will not enjoy listening to just scratching for an hour. Here, the X-ecutioners enlist a small army of collaborators, big and small. The results are varied.
The M.O.P. and Linkin Park collaborations are both heavy metal and rap hybrids that work well. Thug-rap favorites Big Pun and Kool G Rap bring the noise on "Dramacide". The best track is the possie cut "Y'all Know the Name", with Xzibit and others giving the guys behind the wheels some credit. Other songs fall flat. Biz Markie nearly ruins the remake of Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love",the remake of "Marley Marl Scratch" has a lot of static, and the skits are not funny at all.
The X-ecutioners invite some other dj's along for the ride as well. The Triple Threat Dj's remix the intro from Vinroc's '99 mixtape "Reconstruction",(the first reunion of Rob Swift and Shortkut since that Gap commercial),and The Bumrush Brothers show up as well. This album lacks focus, only half of the track can be listened to repeatedly. The production, from the X-ecutioners, Dj Premier, and Large Proffessor, is quality. Its a good rap album put out by dj's, don't expect everyone to get it.
So if you want something to listen to while working the weights, grinding the skate park, or any kind of high energy work, pop this CD in and it will get you hyped up...because these workers of the wheels of steel deliver a solid, high energy cd...

I bought this CD primarily for the song that was a collaboration with LInkin Park, but the rest of the CD was decent.Published on October 25, 2013 by XDanteX

The heavy metal/rock on a hip hop album is shameful. If this was in the early 90's they would be labeled CROSSOVERS. Also most of the skits are whack! Read morePublished on August 19, 2002 by Anuro3
