As the notorious first "official" full length album from the NWA camp, Eazy-E helped establish a stranglehold on the "Gangsta Rap" genre before there ever was such a term. While Eazy had already made a name for himself with his independently released single "Boyz In Tha Hood", (which he had reportedly sold out of his trunk), it was Eazy-Duz-It that made the then unsuspecting Hip-Hop nation take notice of the diminuitive ex-drug dealer turned rapper. While tales of his street exploits, using drug money to start his label, and "Ruthless" business acumen are the stuff of legends, it was this album that most would choose to use as their best memories of the now deceased Eric Wright.

Prior to the release of his single and video "We Want Eazy", the streets of Cali were already abuzz with the mere mention that a whole album was being released by Eazy. He and his crew had already established a loyal following with the flood of singles they had already released. When Eazy-Duz-It was released, Eazy was already in regular rotation from Greg Mack's Rap Attack radio show in LA all the way up to Nasty Nes' show in Seattle. Despite the familiarity with the young sounding rapper, no one was ready for the brashness that the L.P. would offer.

From the start, every offensive, violent, and yes, humourous rhyme was clearly designed to either shock or excite Eazy's audience. Like Too $hort and 2 Live Crew before him, Eazy went for a dirty side and a clean side to his album. The fact that he started off with the dirty side seemed to make the statement that the priorty with Eric & Co. was streets first, then radio. Like Ice-T's Rhyme Pays, Eazy-Duz-It was an uncompromising look at the rough inner-city with tales of drugs, prostitution and violence.

For those of you who don't already own a copy of this CD, I would say this edition would be your best bet. The sound quality is the best yet, featuring a very clean, remastered sound. And while the 2002 reissue included the EP '5150 Home 4 Tha Sick,' this edition includes the incredibly rare 12" remix version of Still Talkin', which is quite the hidden gem here. On this version, there is a few lines of rapping that I had never heard from the late, great Eazy E, and I've been collecting his stuff for decades. You also get the 12" remix version of 'We Want Eazy,' which is also decent. But for track # 14 alone, it's a must have for any Eazy fan!

What can I say tht hasn't already been said about this classic in rap? Eazy E is definitely a legend and inspiration and he proves it here. He might not write all his rhymes but his delivery is the most entertaining and refreshing you'll hear on any rap album. He has a natural charisma that just takes over and there isn't one skip song on this. It's too bad Dre and Eazy had to have that feud and fall-out because they worked much better together than without each other. The lyrics were gangsta rap still but they had an element of playfulness and fun. The production has an overalll feeling that can't be duplicated because Dre's funky, not quite G Funk production but extremely good, production and Eazy's one of a kind lyric delivery and natural flow compliment each other so well. When people say this is the blueprint for what was to come on the West coast, that's accurate but the big difference is that on here nobody was beefing, they were having fun. As far as guest MC'ing on here, MC Ren is good when he comes on the mic but this is the Eazy show and he lets you know. It's hard to take this out of the CD player, I spun this 4 times before taking it out just lately. A must buy for any fan of rap, Eazy E, or NWA.

I really don't do rap, and a lot of it is just too vile for me to listen to for any extended period. I'm a 49-year old white guy who didn't listen to this stuff when it came out. But somehow I really like this - it's vile and rude and funny and offensive. I guess it's not as hard to take because Eazy seems to take himself less seriously than say, Dr. Dre, whose production here really is fantastic. Eazy's raps are by turns silly, nasty and funny, and overall, I actually like this.

I remember sneaking into my bedroom and listening to albums like this on my walkman because the lyrics were a little too blue for my moms taste. Even my dad didn't want me hearing this and he was the one that put me on to Redd Foxx. In hindsight, I'd have to say that this album was worth all the risk. But because an album was tight when you were in high school or college doesn't make it classic. I think a lot of people believe an album is classic simply because it's old. This album is definitely dope though. There ARE some classic joints to be found on this album. Tracks like "Boyz N The Hood (Remix)", "Eazy-er Said Than Dunn", "We Want Eazy", and "Eazy Duz It" are all classics that are still bangin' today and joints like "No More ?'s" and "Ruthless Villain" are tight as well.

There are a few suspect tracks that keep this album from achieving classic status. Tracks like "Still Talkin'", "Eazy-Chapter 8 Verse 10", and "Nobody Move" don't really go anywhere and come off as really forgettable while "I'ma Break It Down" is just plain boring.

Overall, the album is dope and is definitely worth owning. This disc falls short of classic, but the bangers on here make this album more than worth the money. If you're into old school or if you haven't heard these songs, then I recommend picking this one up. Also, if you can't find 5150: Home 4 Tha Sick then getting this is probably the closest you'll come to getting it since it's out of print now.

Standout Tracks: Radio, Boyz N The Hood (Remix), Ruthless Villain, We Want Eazy, Eazy Duz It, No More ?'s, and Eazy-er Said Than Dunn (My Favorite)

R.I.P. Eric Wright
