Editorial Reviews

This is Bay Area rapper Mac Mall's classic first and many say best CD featuring the songs "Sic Wit Tis," "Ghetto Theme" and "Pimp Shit." Originally released in 1993, this album features the rappers Mac Dre and Ray Luv. Also includes the song "Ghetto Theme" which was Mac Mall's first video, directed by and co-starring Tupac Shakur (this video can be seen on the DVD "The Y.B.B. Records Video Collection Vol. 1," catalog number YBF #1112).

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF BAY AREA'S BEST ALBUMS EVER... A CLASSIC! December 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album dropped in 1993 and it presented us a young Vallejo rapper - Mac Mall. On this album, which is his debute, Mac Mall completely ripped sh** up, commin' out with some raw hardcore raps serving us with nuthing but game. His lyrics are always original and fascinating, telling stories about life on the streets, the rap game or growing up in today's society. The album was done more than 7 years ago yet is sounds much fresher and newer than most of the albums that come out today. Why's that? Because of the producer of this album - the one and only Khayree! His beats are untouchable and noone has his production style. He's just a genius and the music on this album is so original and so different than any other producers you've heard. On a certain song you've got an amazing beat all over, and suddenly on the 3rd verse, Khayree drops a WHOLE NEW BEAT, totally new and even TIGHTER! And you're like "Daamn! It's incredible!" . The album is a classic and it started the label "Young Black Brotha" which came out with other classic albums by Ray Luv, Mac Dre, Dubee and Young Lay. One of the Bay's best albums, you gotta hear it to believe it! People fail to realise that Mac Mall was 15 years old when he recorded this album. Can you get this?... 15 years old!! Can you imagine a little industry punk like (Lil') Bow Wow or Lil' Romeo writing and performing songs like those there?...ever? Hey, they won't be able to be on Mac Mall's level even 15 years from now. They haven't got the talent, the skills, the ability, the hunger - plus - they haven't been through sh**, and they aren't from the streets anyway. There isn't enough that could be said about this masterpice! Jamall Rocker a.k.a. Mac Mall is a legend, and his debut is the first one to show you why. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars simply the BEST album EVER August 14, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you want the tightest album of all time, if you want the tightest and most original beats, if you want a lyricist who drops insane game which makes bass heads drop cane, if you want a quick and thorough tutorial of pimpology and a degree in mack-a-fram-a-lam-a, if you want to be weak in the knees as you bump these beats, if you want more chassi than your stable can handle................. BUY THIS ALBUM! Only rivaled by Ray Luv (Forever Hustlin) Mac Mall is the new black bossalini, the new pimp of the year, the mayor of the city of dope, and the Bill Clinton of the rap game--seriously though buy this album, open up your wallets and pay this pimp some tokens for his amazing talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic bay area April 20, 2005
By Kd
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, this is the sh#t. That bay area sh#t. Heavy tracks with deep bass by khayree, and tight rapping from mac mall. This was one of the tight, tight albums of 93'. Start to finish, its cool all the way through. I will never let this go missing or get fu#@ed up. If you like bay area or rap altogether, then you need to know about this and have it if you don't already. Later!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BAY AREA RAP ALBUM TO DATE June 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This was a very consistent album. The beats from Khayree were amazing. I first heard "Sic Wid Dis" on a compilation, and I soon went and bought the album. It was hard to believe he was so young when he dropped this cut. The lyrics sound like he had been in the rap game for about five years. With the last line of the album being "This is straight from Mall, ( ) y'all, sincerely" it puts the perfect ending to one of the tighest albums ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bay Area's Finest January 7, 2004
By H.C.
Format:Audio CD
I was amazed after I had listened this album. This is one of the best ever, and the beats are definitely the best. Underground super-producer Khayree gave those unbelievable beats, where Mac Mall could deliver his gangsta mack rhymes. All the tracks are off the hook, the whole album is Bay Area style at it's best. The 5 stars aren't enuff for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WEST COAST CLASSIC!! July 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Illegal Business is one of the greatest rap albums, period. Mac Mall comes with some of the tightest lyrics any hip-hop head has heard on a debut album. There are many standout tracks, including "Sic wit tis","Ghetto theme",and the classic "My opinion". A must have album for any fan of REAL WEST COAST RAP!
