4.0 out of 5 stars BETTER than "Guerilla Warfare" December 8, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is the Hot Boys debut CD, released in 1997, before the Hot Boys went national. This CD is better than their most recent release, partly for that reason. It really shows on this album that they were putting their heart into making every track as dope as possible. "We on Fire" has a beat that's ten times better than the new version. "Take it Off Your Shoulder," Juvenile's solo track, is one of his best songs to date. Even the intro to this album revolves around a dope beat. If you like the down south sound, you'll LOVE this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as Guerrilla warfare, if not better. July 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This cd is just 2 raw, Juve, turk, bg'z, lil weezy, are just takin on everyone and winning. It's just as good as warfare, trust me. Whoever gets it, email your opinions to Krazy16699@aol.com! This LP is more of the mellow type. Warfare is the one that gets you pumped. Don't let that repel you from the CD. All the hot boys are putting bombs on NLS, by lyrics, beats, everything. I'm doin this for your own good....... GET THIS CD NOW! I'm not demanding but believe me, do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The album that set if off! September 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the Hot Boys' first album as a group, and even though Cash Money Records had sold hundrieds of thousands of records before it as well, this was the record that gave them the Universal deal. Untill this album, the label was huge only in their region, and while it was enough to make Baby and his label rich, very few oustide the Dirty South had heard about CMR. Well, that album changed all that. It sold more than 400,000 copies independantely!... So, what's so special about this one?... It's the first time the four hottest rappers on the label united and worked together. This album was released in 1997, so all of them were VERY young: Juvenile was 22, B.G. was 17, Lil' Wayne was only 14(!) and Turk wasn't much older as well. Depite their young age, all of them menage to impress - each one having his own unique style. Juvenile is the star of course, the one who shines above all: His crisp delivery, hint of humour, and passionate truthfulness in his words have always made him a standout in a world filled with lackluster rappers. B.G. has got a darker, more gangsta oriented style, while rapping real calm and grimmy (almost with no emotions whatsoever). Lil' Wayne is a young teenager on this one, but his talent can't be ignored, especially on his first ever solo song "Block Burner" : his rap skills still unpolished and his voice is still kinda quite on this album, but the charisma and creative delivery are already there. Turk also impresses with his thugged out rhymes and overall mic presence. So, as you see all of the Hot Boys do a great job, even though some of them (Lil' Wayne and Turk) were just getting started (Juve and BG already had a few albums under their belts). And as usual, it was Mannie Fresh's awesome beats that stood up! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Platinum Hit August 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the best albums cash money has put out. With the 4 rappers that include Juvenile, Lil Wayne, B.G., and Turk. They sure do know how to lay down lyrics. "Get It How U Live" contains one of the best songs ever put out in Cash Money. "50 shots gonna set it off" is another big hit by this group of young artist. And Lil Wayne's 1st ever single hit "Block Burner" is definetly going to have the block blazin for a while. I think this debut album is one of the best debut albums ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cash Money Classic Fa sho! June 27, 2003
By Dwayne
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge Cash Money fan. I've been down with them since jump. Not only that, but I'm one of the few people who realize that Cash Money talks about more things then just money, cars, and women. I have every single Cash Money CD that has ever come out and 99% of the songs are about head bussin. So I don't know why people say that about Cash Money. They must only listen to the radio joints instead of the underground stuff they put out.
Now on to this CD. First of all I want to point out that this CD is a classic. Mannie Fresh's production is top notch on this CD. B.G. only appears on 8 tracks because he was in rehab during this time for drug use. But the CD still did well even though he wasn't included. Here's what I thought of each song.
1: Intro: This is just the Big Tymers talking. They drop some rhymes but as usual, they don't have much to say.
2: We on Fire: I love the beat Mannie has concocted. However, I'm not feeling Turk and Juvenile on the hook, but its still a good song. BG is not included on this song, and that really pisses me off, b/c he's not only my fav. cmm, but also one of my favorite rappers. 9/10
3: 50 Shots: This song is off the hook. This is an instant classic. We have Mannie Fresh on the Chorus here, and Mannie drops a hard beat I must say. As for who rips the best verse, its a tossup between Juve and Turk. 9/10
4: On Tha Porch: Skip.
5: Block Burner: (Lil Wayne) Aw man, this track is hot. Lil Wayne was spittin str8 fiya here. Tha beat is a lil creepy, but its still ill. 9/10
6: Neighborhood Superstar: The beat is off the hook on this CD. Mannie Fresh creates a nice smooth beat. Baby, Fresh, Juve and Weezy all rip nice verses, but I gotta give the award to Fresh for the best verse.
