Editorial Reviews

A first of its kind, the revolutionary east coast Dead Prez and Tupac's legendary OutLawz join forces to deliver an incredible LP full of 14 hot songs and production. The album delivers an uplifting message of empowerment, telling us that We Can't Sell Dope Forever thru a splendid array of musical compositions and powerful lyrics. Young Noble from the OutLawz raps There aint too many dope dealers retiring, there aint too many old prostitutes vacationing on the island, instead of knocking 'em down my purpose is to inspire them. With production by, Dead Prez, Soul Messiah, Edi Don and a special guest appearance, by Lazy Bone (Bone Thugs and Harmony) this LP is a certified street banger.

2.0 out of 5 stars One to Grow on..... September 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Real quick and to the point this is average at best. I am a Dead Prez and Outlaw fan, but this seems rushed. I know they could have done better than this. M1 from Dead Prez is not on most of the album and Kastro from Outlawz is not to present either. They put a song on here from Get Free or Die Tryin'(maybe for those who did not hear it) and that kind of bothered me.

I know it's a mix cd and not an official album but still they could have done better. I can't lie it has grown on me a little more now, cause when I first got it I was like this is whack. Hardcore fans should get it, if you are new to both groups get something else, this is a bad representation of them.

Dead Prez (Stic.man, M-1) & the Outlawz (E.D.I., Young Noble, Kastro) deliver a short mix tape with "Can't Sell Dope Forever". Being a fan of both groups I have been anticipating this one. Outlawz affiliate (sometimes credited as a member) Stormey makes a number of on point performances on this release. The Outlawz, Dead Prez and Stormey get things started on a strong note with "1 Nation" and the title track "Can't Sell Dope Forever" - both cuts have the team looking for better ways while kicking street knowledge. One of the things I like about Stic.man, is he is a gifted lyricist who can sing to, and remains very much in touch with the streets. Stic.man tells a sad and powerful story of drug addiction on "Like A Window". The Lawz, Dead Prez and Stormey take their audience through the daily grind on "Thuggin' on the Blokkk" and then M-1 & Messy Marv collaborate over a laidback beat on the solid "U Aint The Only 1". Stormey, Scott Lo & Erica shine on "Searchin", outstanding lyrics and a smooth chorus from Erica make this cut a track with replay. Tha Outlawz, Stormey and Malachi provide another standout with "Fork In The Road", 2Pac's vocals are sampled very briefly at the beginning of the track, and the Lawz & Co do him proud on this cut delivering introspective lyrics. Stic.man & Ms. Nora (Stic's Mama) then drop "Believe" which is a follow up lyrically to "Like A Window". Young Noble, Layzie Bone and Stic.man drop some tight verses on the album's closer "Came Up". Dead Prez & Tha Outlawz provide a quality release with "Can't Sell Dope Forever", I will look forward to seeing these two groups collaborate again.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT WHAT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN January 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
DEAD PREZ & OUTLAWZ PRESENTS:

CAN'T SELL DOPE FOREVER

It took the longest time but finally two of the greatest groups in rap history have come together to record an album. Dead Prez have always been known for their political and cultural views, as were the Outlawz are most likely remembered for their diss tracks recorded with mentor 2pac, they as well have always voice their opinions and views on the same topics Dead Prez are famous for.

1.INTRO-just a guy with a screwed voice saying the name of the cd

2.1 NATION-after a sample of a guy talking about gang violence a nice beat from STIC.MAN blesses your ears, and you are immediately hyped about this release. Then the Outlawz, Dead Prez, and STORMEY all start spitting about how everybody in the ghetto should come together and stop killing each other. This is a strong start to the album.4.5/5

3.CAN'T SELL DOPE FOREVER-next up is the title track, and this one isn't as strong as the first song on the cd. But this song is a good track, and has some of the best lyrics on the album as the Laws, Stic.Man, and Stormey each trade verses. EDI comes threw with the production on this track.4/5

4.LIKE A WINDOW-Stic.Man comes very nice on this track with an excellent beat, the beat is very reflective sounding. Plus Stic comes nice on the verses with a song about his brother, and ghetto life, plus the hook is very nice. This is one of the best songs on the entire album.5/5

5.SURRONDINGS-a quick interlude

6.THUGGIN ON THE BLOCKKK-the exact line up on verses and production from track 3 return with an even better outing. All of the verses are on point and the hook by EDI is real nice. Plus the beat from EDI is perfect for night riding.

4.0 out of 5 stars this is not an actual review September 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'm just saying that Fork in the Road is the best song on the cd and that there is more Outlawz than Dead Prez flavor on the album. I bought it right when it came out and I am generally pleased with it though it sometimes becomes a little too "street" for my taste. A solid effort for hip hop in a year that is just dismay for us fans.
