Editorial Reviews

For The People is the debut album from Hip Hop collective Boot Camp Clik, consisting of Buckshot from Black Moon, Cocoa Brovaz, formerly known as Smif-N-Wessun, Heltah Skeltah and O.G.C. The crew officially organized in 1995, with all eight members appearing on the song "Cession At Da Doghillee" from Smif-N-Wessun's Dah Shinin'. The album features a different sound then that heard on previous Camp related releases, with the crew abandoning their past production crew Da Beatminerz, instead recording with live instrumentation.

Overall B.C.C. puts out a very good album. The 1st 2 songs are intro's, with the 3rd being the album breakthrough with a chillin song to start off with. The 4th ("Headz Are Reddee Pt.2") song is a good mixture of piano, inhalation of smoke, and bass with lryics straight from the heart of Brooklyn, callin out the East Coast underground to elevate. The tracks from 4 to 9 are overall good, but 10("Rugged Terrain") adds a reggae type of beat and vocals, as B.C.C. combines their lyrical flow into the reggae mix. Track 11 ("The Dugout") starts off with a very chillin metal drum beat, with a couple phone call messages for B.C.C.; the group opens up lyrically with talk of struggle in this world for other battlers, either on the mic, passing by, or for B.C.C. themselves. Track 12 ("Go For Yours") has a great beat for an upbeat stroll down Central Park, while thinking of writing poetry as B.C.C.-"mentally you can't function, physically you're dead with the push of this button, explosions keep eruptin'...." etc., etc.

Overall, O.G.C., Heltah Skeltah, Boot Camp Clik, and Smif-N-Wessun put together a very good underground hip-hop album. I recommend this album to any tru hip-hop listenas!!

This album clearly demonstrates what HIP HOP is all about. No stolen beats, no wack lyrics about f**in Bentley's and Platinum. If you didn't like this album, sorry it couldn't have been more PUFFY. Give it a few listens and then rate it, I think this is as good as Hip Hop gets and ranks with all other BCC material.

Members Cocoa Brovaz (Smif-N-Wessun), Heltah Skeltah, O.G.C., Representativz and others led by B.D.I. (Buckshot) to bring hip-hop back. A major element that's missing from this release is the production of the Beatminers. The slow grooving jam "Night Riders" crept unexpectedly to a favoriate tune. The solo song for Louieville Sluggah of O.G.C. titled "The Dugout" is laced with a xylophone and a one, two kick. As simple as it is Louieville made a base hit with this one. "Illa Noyz" performed by Illa Noyz and Heltah Skeltah, could have been better without that hook, but they did thier part in bringing this release a fresh voice. The production is filled with a more live feel that maybe stripped it of its potency, yet titles like "Rag Time" is a jazzy/soulful jam where we get to hear Buckshot flow.

It's very easy for people to dismiss an album when they had certain expectations in mind.When I bought this album, I admit it wasn't what I expected, but after close inspection I started to get what they were trying to do here. This album wasn't made for easy listening, it's for underground headz. I would be lying if I said I didn't miss the beatminerz production skillz and a couple of songs like "last time" and "ragtime" didn't help the continuity of the album. For those of you who don't think the BTJ's are hot after listening to the song"Go for yours", check them out on DUCK DOWN PRESENTS on the song "playing for keeps". These cats are blazing!!!Pick up the album, put away your expectations and listen to it, it's a lot better than a lot of junk that's out there today.

There is a very strong challenge to the wu clan here. The members of bcc keep bringing the real. They definitely drag you back to what hip hop is really about -no commercial B.S. here.
Keep the flow like it iz... Peace

The BCC album titled for the people is a great album, its different from there prior projects because they are not using there main production company the beatminerz. This time around they used alot of keyboards and bass, strings for most of the production with live instruments. Its different but better for the long run. The music is excellent mostly all new matarial, not that many samples in the beats. BCC album for the people is has little something for every body on it, if you are die hard bcc fan or are you just a new comer to rap you should pick it up. it doesnt matter what coast you from, the sounds vary for each coast, thats why the album title is BOOT CAMP CLIK FOR THE PEOPLE!!!! A SOLID ALBUM, THE BOOT CAMP CLIK CONSIST OF THE FOLLOWING ARTIST: BUCKSHOT OF BLACKMOON, SMIF N WESSUN AKA COCOA BROVAZ, HELTAH SKELTAH, ORIGINOO GUNN CLAPPAZ, THA REPRESENTATIVEZ, ILLA NOYZ, BUCKTOWN JUVINILES, BJ SWAN, M.S. AND MANY MORE ARTIST COMING BE ON THE LOOK OUT. ALL THESE ARTIST HAVE ALBUMS OUT AND THEY ARE ALL GOOD, BCC HASNOT PUT ANYTHING OUT THAT WAS NOT GOOD YET, BEEN OUT SINCE 93 AND NOW ITS 98.

Alright, simple and plain...the greatest cd that the B.C.C crew came out with was "Angels of Death" by Representativz. The Representativz came out tight on their cd but all of the other B.C.C's came out lacking production on their albums. This CD came out pretty tight though because it reveals EVERYONE who was originally on the B.C.C and gave them a chance to shine. Every single song on here OTHER THAN number 5,6, & 7 had some tight beatz, tight lyrical hooks, and tight production. Only warning i have for anyone who listens to this cd for the first time is...STAY AWAY FROM TRACKS 5,6, AND 7!! PLEASE!!....N-e-wayz...y'all enjoy this cd. And cop that angels of death CD. AND I'M OUT.:-D
