4.0 out of 5 stars Nice collection of rarer R.A. tracks December 3, 2009
By G$
Format:Audio CD
This came out almost 5 years since his last (and only, as far as I know) studio album, his nice 4 star "Die Rigged Man, Die" album. He has been recording songs for over 16 years and this is a collection of some of those rare, lost, and forgotten tracks that he made from 1994-2009, while being screwed over/screwing over various record label deals over the same period of time. Some are more known on the underground circuit and some were just never really put out at all. It has 17 songs, 2 near classics, 2 ok songs, the other 13 are good or real good songs. Guests are a little heavy, on 11 of the 17 songs, but it's enough to keep his fans held over til his hopeful early 2010 release of a new album. It's nice as well comes with a DVD of some video's and performances as wella s him talking about the background/storyline behind each of the songs on here. Producers include: Ayatollah, Buckwild, Mike Mosely, Havoc, Dev-1, Stoupe, Purist, Capital the Crimelord, Marc Niles, Loptimist, Dirtman, Big Earth the Midget Face. A nice album to have from one of the most underrated, yet highly skilled emcess out.

#1 - 9 (f/ J-Live)
#2 - 7.5
#3 - 8.5 (f/ Hell Razah, Tragedy Khadafi, Timbo King)
#4 - 9 (f/ Dynasty the Emp -- nice beat)
#5 - 9 (f/ Jedi Mind Tricks -- deeper, true story behind R.A.'s 2 min. verse)
#6 - 8.5 (f/ Havoc)
#7 - 8 (f/ Big Earth the Midget Face)
#8 - 9.5 (tight beat)
#9 - 9 (f/ Notorios B.I.G.)
#10 - 8.5 (f/ Kool G Rap & Big John)
#11 - 9
#12 - 8 (f/ Hell Razah, JoJo Pellegrino, Remedy, & Blaq Poet)
#13 - 7.5 (f/ Akinyele)
#14 - 8.5
#15 - 9.5 (f/ Sadat X -- tight beat)
#16 - 8.5
#17 - 8.5

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Disclosure: The Legend is itself a Classic April 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't write as well as I think, but when I think and write at the same time, something legendaric happens. The same should be said for this RA's album which I'm pretty sure was released in 2004 but who knows, I just discovered it now—noW—and his words have bored into my brainstem like fluted columns of ionic chair-form music molecules with a quarter to half turn sinister (that's Latin for "boat ride"). Like I said, something legendryc happens. If not for the seven to ten black dudes who approached me at stop lights when they heard RA blaring through my super amazing headphones that cancel out the love a mother has for its child, I would have been satisfied anyway, but as it happened a couple hours ago me, Chico, Reddawgg (2g's) and D (his name is something more like Dei'sh'wnwan or something but either of us could not figure out how to spell it so we call him D on here) are all going to hang out and play old School MegaMan which never had happened before my parents let me have an RA album for us all to listen to. Thanks RA. You da (the with an a) and a ‘d’) man!
