Editorial Reviews

Steady B V [Steady B 5] = NAME OF CASSETTE Steady B is the artist's name: Warren McGlone Warren McGlone (born September 17, 1969, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), known by the stage name Steady B, was an American hip hop emcee who, along with Schoolly D, the Fresh Prince, and Three Times Dope, was one of the first wave of Philadelphia-area emcees to gain notoriety in the mid to late 1980s. Steady B was a member (and de facto leader) of Philadelphia's Hilltop Hustlers crew. Steady B's musical career was relatively short-lived, and he is currently serving a life sentence in a Pennsylvania state prison for his role in the murder of a Philadelphia Police officer during a botched bank robbery in January 1996. Steady B Five is a portrait of an artist at the crossroads of a career. "Five" shows us a different side of Steady B, one who is more financially "aware" of the business of rap, and the business of the opposite sex. (Girls Gonna Getcha, Pay Me Baby) As he had done in the past with Cool C (Chris Roney)and Three Times Dope, this album marks Warren's attempt to put another rapper "on," with rhymes from Mentally Gifted on "You Don't Stop."

Steady B Five is a portrait of an artist at the crossroads of a career.
Warren McGlone's (Steady B) previous attempts to reach a broader rap audience didn't seem to succeed; arguably the best rap album of 88, "Let the Hustlers Play," with collaboration from KRS-One is one of my all time favorites, and a perfect example. Laced with metaphoric wisdom from the streets of Philadelphia, and surgeon like cuts form Terrence Thomas, (TAT-Money)Let the Hustlers Play is the artist at his peak; proud, hopeful, brazen; all the things we expect.
"Five" shows us a different side of Steady B, one who is more financially "aware" of the business of rap, and the business of the opposite sex. (Girls Gonna Getcha, Pay Me Baby) As he had done in the past with Cool C (Chris Roney)and Three Times Dope, this album marks Warren's attempt to put another rapper "on," with rhymes from Mentally Gifted on "You Don't Stop."
Best tracks: 6. Keeper Of The Funk 10. License To Kill 8. Uza Flea 13. I Ain't Going Nowhere 2. The Warpath
If you are a fan of the "game," and consider your self a "head," "Steady B Five" (SILVERTONE 1428) is still one for your Philly collection, along with "Going Steady" (Jive 1284-2-J)and "What's My Name?."

Steady B, one of the greatest emcees hailing out of Philly, attempts to gain mass appeal by watering down his raw skill and Philadelphia style of deliverance. Although he is currently behind bars for being a part of Philadelphia's first African American policewomen murder, his music prior to his attempts to crossover will forever have its place in Philadelphia hip hop history.

I am a bigger fan of Cool-C than I am of Steady B. but if you are like me then this Steady B. album is for you ! There are three tracks on this album which feature verses by Chris aka Cool C. They are "Uza Flea", "Steady N Cool", and "And U Don't Stop" which also features a rapper which goes by the name of "Mentally Gifted". This cat can rhyme and is a welcomed addtion to the track. I heard him on a track titled "Back N Fourth" on Cool C's second solo album titled "Life In The Ghetto" from 1990 on Atlantic records. That album is also an album which you should pick up if you havn't already. Chris aka Cool C spits one of the dopest verses in his carreer in my humble opinion on the cut "Uza Flea". I have read alot of people hating on my boy saying alot of his rhymes sound dated and too simplistic. All you haters can keep on hating and doubting my boys lyrical wit but after you hear my boys verse on that cut "Uza Flea" he'll make you eat those negative words. The verse he kicks on that song can hang with the lyrical flows and styles that were to come in hip hop after 1991 when this song dropped and can even hang with todays flows. Actually I think it sounds way better than what I have heard other hip hop artists of today mutter over the mic in their verses of 2009 ! He spit straight lyrical fire on that cut hands down ! His god given talents of being a top M.C. come shining thru for all the doubters and haters to witness first hand with their ears. If you're a big Cool C fan like me the verse alone that he kicks on "Uza Flea" is worth the purchase price of this album release. I really think Cool C stole the spotlight from Steady B. on that song and definitly puts any of the doubters out there on Cool C's talent as a quality M.C. in check !

I remember when this album came out. I wanted to cop it, but it was hard to find, at least where I was living at the time. Thanks to Amazon, I was finally able to find a copy. Very disappointing. Steady B tried to come to commericial in this jon. There was only one track that I liked on the entire album and even it wasn't that great. If you compare this album with his first they are like night and day. His first album is classic. This album he seemed to be to desparate to get paid. Therefore, he tried to make a main stream/commercial album. Unfortunately, he was unable to redeem himself. I know he would have made something hotter then this next go round.
