5.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars (ignore the 5) Roxbury 02119 May 18, 2006
By ?
Format:Audio CD
If you don't know, Edo.G. is one of the most genuine and conscious Mc's ever to pick up mic. He is also one of the most inspiring MC's of 1991, (and still is, 13 years later in 2004 with the release of "My own worst enemy"), proving why he is undboutedly Boston' #1 MC. For most groups, it is inevitable that the second album never exceeds the expectations installed from the debut, well, there is no difference here for Ed O.G. & Da Bulldogs. However saying that, "Life of a kid in the ghetto" was one of the best albums of 1991, with most songs proving to have a strong message that was so evidently needed in Hiphop, so beating that would take some doing. Roxbury 02119 is a very consistant album, with not one weak track. Although the messages are not as important and hardhitting as on the debut, Roxbury still offers some food-for thought. The beats mostly handled by DITC legend Diamond D, are qunitessential 1993 with the hard bass & drums and refreshing samples. Although not the best album of 1 of the best years for hiphop(1993), this album helps justify that argument, and should not be ignored by any fan of early 90's hiphop. PEACE

3.0 out of 5 stars Boston's finest (3.5/5) December 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ed O.G. & da Bulldogs made history with their 1991 debut Life of a Kid in the Ghetto, an excellent album that balanced slick East Coast production with socially conscious and relevant lyrics. Songs like the single "Be a Father to Your Child" advocated social responsibility and reflected simultaneous works by artists such as Main Source, and Ed O.G. established himself as the best MC from the city of Boston. Two years later, he returned with his sophomore effort, "Roxbury 02119." The first thing that jumped out to me about this album was how much it sounded like a concurrent D.I.T.C. release. Musically, it sounds so much like Diamond D's 1992 LP Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop that if judged by beats alone, one might confuse the two. It turns out that Diamond D handled the bulk of the production on "Roxbury 02119," and you can definitely tell. His upbeat, looping beats with chirpy horn samples and signature vocal breaks of singing and chanting crowds will be familiar to any fans of D.I.T.C. On the mic, Ed makes a slight departure from his debut. On Life of a Kid in the Ghetto, relevant issues dominated most of the verses, but "Roxbury 02119" is a more conventional album, following some 1993 trends. Most of the time, Ed's more concerned with dissing nameless sucker-MCs than advocating social issues. Ed's not exactly what you'd call an exciting rapper, and given his monotone delivery and consistently midtempo delivery, the product can be a little underwhelming at points, but he's likable because he seems like such a realistic and ordinary guy.

5.0 out of 5 stars that '93 sound..is here for you June 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first herd of ED OG on one of the most beuatiful(or probably the best ever) beat in the histroy of hip-hop, Scientifk's "lawtown"...in this album you can find that '93 sound that precedeed the mighty '94 vibes..diamond d and joe mansfield helped ed on the productions and the result...is dope.
top joints"less than zero" with one of the beautifullest horn sample ever, "skinny dip", "love comes & goes"
buy it or die suffering.

Roxbury 02119, the second album by Ed O.G & Da Bulldogs, is once again a golden age masterwork with basement beats, great samples, and wise lyrics. This is the last album that Edo. G did with the Bulldogs before he began focusing more on his solo career. It has great underground sounds that all hip hop heads will love.
