At first, I HATED this album... Lord Jamar especially [angered me].. but through time and many listens, I learned to LOVE IT!!! It's hardcore... It's East-coast 5% gangsta hiphop.. Smoked-out revolution... SADAT X steals the entire lp!!!! Every verse of his is memorable... The beats are PANCAKE fat.. produced by Lord Jamar, Buckwild and co-produced by Sadat X..Guests are all unknown except for Busta Rhymes in the extremely violent and raw "Alladat". The only songs I'm not feeling too much are "Nubian Jam" and "Hold On" which uses the simply Red loop.. The best songs are "Word Is Bond"
"Straight Off Da Head" ( a freestyle joint with a live band)
"Down For The Real", "Alladat" f/Busta Rhymes, "Lik Dem Muthafukkaz", "Step Into The Cipher" Some songs have live instrumentation like "Nubian Jam", "Straight Off Da Head", and "Down For The Real" and also "Claimin' I'm A Criminal"...
1. Word Is Bond (single... funky bassline, guitar, and horn along with live piano keys. This is a full song. Sadat X gets real ghetto and funky on this one.)
2. Straight off da Head -(freestyle improv with live band. Dope!!! Sadat X steals the show.. They have skills on the mic and this song proves it!)
3. Weed Vs. Weaves (Interlude) -(skit about spending money on weed instead of your girlfriend's hair)
4. Nubian Jam - (lame, smoothed out commercial attempt. the beat is soft too. RnB hook that goes no where. The song is about nothing really.)
5. Alladat (f/Busta Rhymes) - (DOPE!!! Sadat X solo produced by Buckwild and Busta is on the hook. This is a wild track.. made to [anger someone]. One of the best Dotty X tracks ever!)

Brand Nubian shocked heads from the jump. White, black, asian, and latinos all have at one time or another been exposed to this group of self-aware New York talent. "Everything is Everything" is one of those joints that many hip-hop peeps may have just straight up missed. This LP has it's fresh and not-so-fresh moments. Fortunately, editing on this piece is proper, scattering the gems throughout the album. Nubian was at a strange time in 1994. Puba went off on his own little solo venture, and Alamo, well, Alamo must have been doin' his own thing as well. DJ Sincere is on the decks this time. This gives Dottie-X and Jamar a chance to shine on their own and express themselves without the quite possibly overbearing prescence of Puba. Dope undergound talent is exposed here in a major way. Check out track 6 "Step into the Cipher" for proof of this. Overall though, "Everything is Everything" will leave you feeling the way you did after watching "The Empire Strikes Back", unsettled and eager for the next episode. Peace.

And I thought "In God We Trust" was dark! That album shines happy as the sun compared to "Everything Is Everything!" The cursing is severely worse here, and they basically take violent and angry themes a la "Pass The Gat" and "Black And Blue" and basically turn it into a whole album. They drop almost all the religious and righteousness rhetoric and really do get up on some gangsta sh#t. Maybe Brand Nubian was paying too much attention to Tupac's idea of revolution at this time(1994). This still turns out to be a pretty good album, you just need to beware before entering it.
Most of the album contains talk about guns and inflicting violence upon others, especially the "devils" out there. The first song, "Word Is Bond," is a banger and probably the only uptempo track besides "Alladat," perhaps. If you don't want to hear them talk about dark, violent situations, then you may only want to listen to the first 5 or 6 songs. Sadat X and Lord Jamar actually get a solo song to themselves with "Alladat" and "Return Of The Dread," respectively. Sadat's is solid with Busta Rhymes ranting and cussing on the hook and at the end of the track, by which I usually skip ahead because I can't stand Busta's explicit rambling at the end. Jamar's is pretty good too, with a memorable beat, and it does delve heavily into violence. If you're gonna stay for the violent songs, the best example is the viciously dark "Sweatin' Bullets" which works well for them, and Sadat's verse does outshine Jamar's. "Claimin' I'm A Criminal" is possibly the best song here where Jamar and Sadat lay down unforgettable verses. Jamar starts off and talks about getting arrested, while Sadat continues and talks about living in jail, and the verse is admittedly pretty sad.

I didn't like this album when I first heard it @ age 17-18(I'm 37 now), didn't feel it was engaging like "One For All" was or hard-hitting like "In God We Trust". However, I was wrong. With "Everything...", Lord Jamar is still @ the helm with leading verses on most songs and producing as he did with "IGWT", Sadat X cementing his lyrical legend and co-producing some jernts("joints" for the non-Southern). DJ Sincere is here, too, but Brand Nubian was never one of those groups with heavy scratching on fair amounts of their records. If you didn't miss Grand Puba on "IGWT", you really won't miss him here. Guest raps? Doesn't matter. Hedz bought this for jams like "Word Is Bond" and "Hold On", mixshow favorites like "Alladat"(Sadat solo, produced by the legendary Buckwild of DITC), but you'll be touched by "Claimin' I'm A Crminal", laugh @ "Weed Vs. Weaves(skit)", be surprised by the smoothness of "Nubian Jam". There's even a straight freestyle jernt in "Straight Off Da Head. My jam? "Step Into Da Cipher" featuring their boys Serge, Snagglepuss, and Maestro Manny, hard drums powered by a bassline and a George Benson sample. Enough typing. Just cop this.
