5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST DISS RECORD EVER!!! January 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
When this album first came out back in late 1991 Gangsta Rap was in full swing. But the only problem was the East Coast wasn't known for Gangsta Rap. The Gangsta scene was predominatly on the West Coast,even though it originated on the East Coast with artist such as Schoolly D,Boogie Down Productions,and Public Enemy. Listen to BDP's "Criminal Minded" and P.E.'s "Yo,Bumrush The Show" and Schoolly D's "Saturday Night The Album" all circa 1987 and you'll know what I'm talking about. TIM DOG'S "Penicillin On Wax" is the #1 Classic East Coast Gangsta Rap Album Ever. A lot of people don't know, TIM DOG was affiliated with the Ultramagnetic M.C.'s. They Make guest apperances on such song's as "I Aint Havin It" and "Secret Fantasy's". But the real strong point of the album is DOG'S top notch lyrics and hard disses against who were some of the West Coast hottest rappers at the the time N.W.A.,Comptons Most Wanted and DJ Quik. The most memorable song on the album is "F$$K Compton",where he rags N.W.A. to death. Another hard song is "Step To Me". When TIM DOG stood up to the West Coast that made a lot of people on the East Coast proud. He just did it to let people in AmeriKKKa know that the East could be Gangsta too. Make no mistakes about it the whole CD kicks ass. If you like classic Gangsta Rap from HIP-HOP's golden age you'll love this album,it's must have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meathead music June 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The Ultramagnetic MCs-affiliated Bronx rapper Tim Dog released his 1991 debut "Penicillin on Wax" to a hostile audience. Ever a king of controversy, he made a million enemies with his provocative single "F Compton," a shameless attention ploy dissing N.W.A., DJ Quik, and America's entire Pacific Coast. "Penicillin on Wax" contains more of the same, as Tim trashes everybody from Kwame to Michel'le to Eddie Murphy.

Tim Dog is not to be taken seriously. His condemnation of an entire coast is ridiculous. One of his most frequent contentions for the East Coast's superiority is that the Giants won Super Bowl XXV (see how long that cred lasts, Tim!). Technically, he's very simple, with a basic delivery and predictable rhymes. But it is fun. The Ultramagnetic MCs team provides a tracklist of funky, hardhitting production befitting of a great old school rap album. "Penicillin on Wax" is long in running time and short on substance, but as Tim is an entertainer first and a rapper second, it's frequently enjoyable. "Step to Me" and "Dog's Gonna Getcha" are two highlights, showcasing a particularly pissed-off Tim Dog getting busy over dope beats. "Going Wild in the Penile" is a strong storytelling song, and the production shines on the more laidback "Patriotic Pimp." Guest appearances on the mic from Kool Keith and Ced-Gee also enhance the LP.

From an artistic standpoint, Tim Dog isn't much of an MC, but his appeal is beyond the paramters of the microphone. He's an attention hound and a controversy king, and over dope beats this angry rapper can yield great results. The songs are formulaic but frequently good, and "Penicillin on Wax" is a satisfying album from 1991. I recommend "Penicillin on Wax" to fans of old school rap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tim Dog is the man October 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tim Dog is the man, or should say the motherf**king man (as he would put it). He's is by far one of the corniest rappers in the history of rap, but the beats are slammin' and his lyrics are funny as hell. I love this CD. It's truly entertaining. SIT DOWN! SIT DOWN! SIT DOWN! SIT DOWN! SIT DOWN!
