3.0 out of 5 stars I got a letter from the corporate the other day... April 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Good comeback after their classic first album and their legal troubles with their name, etc. The lyrical skills are there (steele especially -- tek's nasal voice and preoccupation with bob marley get annoying), and there are several great songs on this album, but there are also a few clunkers and a couple with the dreaded R&B choruses the BCC has suddenly become fond of. Overall it's better than most rap releases that get a lot more attention than this, but no one should even consider buying this album unless they already own the classic, "dah shinin".

4.0 out of 5 stars smif n wessun return..... July 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After the name change to Cocoa Brovas nothing much has changed... Tek and Steele still ripp it hardcore on the mic. While not a classic like "Dah Shinin", mainly because of the absenace of the Beatminerz, it still holds up very well, course lyrically. Stand-out cuts: the classic "Black Trump" fea Raekwon, "The Cash", "WON on WON", "Blow my Mind".

3.0 out of 5 stars A good comeback with a few lapses!! July 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Overall, the return of the artists formerly known as Smif N Wessun is a good comeback, however, the high anticipation behind this album will definately have some disappointed. The lyrical content is still there (check out "Black Trump" with Raekwon the Chef) but sometimes the production falls a little short of the lyrics or vice versa. Maybe if they would have had Self, Grand Daddy I.U. and Smoke produce like they did on Heltah Skeltah's Magnum Force LP, this could've been greater. Good but not grand.

4.0 out of 5 stars blazin September 3, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had never really delved into Smif n Wesson's material and when I heard all the hype about this album I decided to buy it. They really live up to the hype, from the stylins of "Won on Won" to wu-induced "Black Trump" they got the skillz and truly are one of the more talented groups out there in the "underground"- just cuz you on the radio doesn't mean you can rhyme. Other good tracks are "Bucktown" and "Spanish Harlem". Check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rude Dogs July 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The same stick up boy flow is there. The Beatminers are in effect again, so is the entire BCC. Ruck especially shines on Maya Angelow. The name is the only thing that changes, along with the beats reflecting more regions than BK. That explains the fuzzy reception from journalists but street regulars know Buktown is everywhere. Highlights of this joint is Bucktown USA, The Cash and Still Shinin.

Another classic out of the Boot Camp Clik. the Cocoa Brovaz, formerly Smif-N-Wessun, have come a long way in their struggle for recognition.

4.0 out of 5 stars duck-DOWN SINCE DAY ONE June 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I agree that THE RUDE AWAKENING wasn't as good as DAH SHININ' because of course DAH SHININ was made in classic times...THE RUDE AWAKENING wasn't dissapointing to me. It jus took me a while to grow along with TEK N' STEELE to see where they where they were comin' from this time around with the experimental keyboards and guitars-as always they taught me alot with THE RUDE AWAKENING because i can relate to alot of the issues in their tracks((BIG UP TO RUCK STAYIN' STRONG AND FEATURING ON THE RUDE AWAKENING LP AFTER THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE)). OF course it was alot harder to please all their fans because of the force of the name change and dem shakey NeRvoUS people so i was feelin alot of anger on THE RUDE AWAKENING as well as a sense of a "follow me on a journey" attitude like General BUCKSHOT. So wit dat,thats jus what I intend to do-continue to shine and learn behind them on their journey so I can know where,how,and why they're going the way they are. In conclusion, I want to mention through all the trials and tribulations before their sophomore LP they still managed to SHINE and will continue to do so.....I JUS WANNA GIV' A SHOUT OUT TO AIRISTATLE DOIN HIS SKATEBOARD THING WIT DEM CRAZYASS CATS FROM THE MESSED UP "KIDS" MOVIE, LES' HURRY UP AND GET DIS GRAPH DESIGN ISH STARTED YO <BASE BROOKLYN FO' LIFE>-ONE LOV....BIG UP TO MY THICKASS FAMILEE-SPECIALLY IN OHIO,LA,D.C.,JERZEE,AND AFRICA(IT'LL BE BETTER SO-USHYA SIN,LEH WO NAH CON-TOGEDAH.)..AND TO MY MAN ROD, WHO'S BEEN MY PNC FROM JUMP-STAND STONG BABY.....one.
