Format: Audio CD
This collection of songs is remarkable in more than a few ways. And in some ways that force it into stark contrast with anything that has come before or since.
Firstly, in the liner notes WC & The MAAD Circle took the time to author a synopsis of each song's inspiration and it's meaning to them. With such an effort they forced a focus on the content and stood firmly behind their ideas. Contrast this to the multitudes of rappers who say that they have merely created a character (Too $hort) or that they are just reporting what they've seen (Mobb Deep). No, The MAAD Circle takes full responsibility for what they rap about and this supremely admirable.
Secondly, the album is virtually devoid of any anti-woman rants and degrading comments about Black women in particular. The one song that does deal with a woman as the central subject leaves this listener with the feeling that The MAAD Circle was discussing a particular relationship and not attempting to paint all women with the same brush. The best thing about their portrayal is that it's relatively fair and even-handed. I love these brothers for challenging the way we discuss women. Nicely done! Unfortunately it seems that only Mos Def was paying attention.
Next, they have the Gangsta tracks and the upbeat lyrics. No one gets murdered. No crime is glorified. No [women] get smacked. Nor are their any shiny suits or garish Versace shirts in the room. They simply provided a gritty urban landscape and painted a musical mural that combats the foolish notion that South Central LA is nothing but death and dismay. For this point alone this LP should have gone platinum and launche The MAAD Circle to superstardom. But we know it never happens that way.
Finally, they rightly take absentee fathers to task for failing to do their job.

THIS WAS OUT BEFORE ALL OF THIS SO CALLED " SOUTHERN-CALI. RAP " EMERGED...FOR INSTANCE, WESTSIDE CONNECTION/MACK 10/EASTSIDAZ/THE GAME/SNOOP DOGG/ETC...ALL OF THAT STUFF DOESN'T COME REMOTELY CLOSE TO " AIN'T A DAMN THING CHANGED..."....THIS ALBUM IS TRULY A " CLASSIC "...

"DRESS CODE", "BEHIND CLOSED DOORS", "OUT ON A FURLOUGH", AIN'T A DAMN THING CHANGED"....THAT'S 4 REASONS WHY THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST RELEASES TO COME OUT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA....ALL THE RAP THAT W.C. DID AFTER THIS, DIDN'T COME CLOSE TO WHAT HE BROUGHT ON THIS ALBUM...

* D.O.C. "NO ONE CAN DO IT BETTER"

* N.W.A.

* WC AND THE MAAD CIRCLE

* C.P.O " TO HELL AND BLACK "

* SCC " SOUTH CENTRAL MADNESS "

* CMW " IT'S A COMPTON THING ".....THOSE ARE THE MUST-HAVE CALI. CLASSICS....

As a college student immersed in hip hop in the early 90's, I thought WC and the Maad Circle's freshman effort "Aint a Damn Thing Changed" epitomised everything that was right with hip hop. 13 years later I have the same opinion. Here we have two MCs with obvious skills (Collio's subsequent success notwithstanding), a DJ (A real DJ!??) and a producer supreme when producers wern't trying to be stars. This CD simply brought the heat. Thats all it promised and all it delivered. Banging beats start to finish; insightful lyrics; funny lyrics; party lyrics; gangsta, but never violent lyrics; on-point, precise delivery; this CD was everything you wanted wrapped up in a perfect package. If there was one seemingly universally slept on album that I know of, this is it. If you love hip hop and you want to know where to start to get it back to its glory days of artistry first, listen to this CD.

WC and Coolio put it down on the slept on hip hop classic "Ain't a Damn thing Changed". WC and Coolio supply the vocals with DJ Crazy Toones behind the wheels of steel and Sir Jinx on the production tip. Every joint is bangin with a lot of political and street commentary west coast style with tight funk samples you can bump in your lowride. One highlight is the joint "You don't work you don't eat" Which features JD and MC Eiht joining WC and Coolio. This is a must buy for any hip hop fan and definitely a must for any fan of west coast music.

Dub-C and the rest of the posse really made an unbelievably strong package, this is a REAL album from start to end. Every topic on this album is the truth. I have to use the cliche "classic" here too, 'cus this is really one.

I was blessed I found this on cassette from Nuso, you can see his review here too. I highly, highly, recommend you to buy this and lot more hard-to-find classics from him. Price is nice, and delivery is fast. Props to him!

Been a W.C. fan since the LOW PROFILE days and growing up to DJ Aladdin...DUB C is the bomb no doubt. Too bad I had to cop this again at a much higher price than what I paid back in 91...No Matter the COST I WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT DUB-C's music.. WESTSIDAH RIDAH!!! BABY!!!!
