If you can't tell by the price this album is being sold at this is a rare find and actually deserves the price tag which it garnered. A masterpeice of an era long gone in hip hop music...Showbiz handles the production with DJ Premier and Roc Raida and has classic DITC crew guest spots. Method Man appears on the rarely heard "Got The Flava" and provides a verse which seems to be frozen in time. Along with Main Source "Breaking Atoms" this album,though expensive,belongs in any true New York Hip Hop head's collection.

This second release from Show and A was a must have after hearing the track "next level" in 95. D.I.T.C. has always released the tightest MC's and some the best production work in this hip hop game. Tracks like "Add On, "All Out and "Check It Out" are some of my favorites on the CD along with others I can't think of. This is a Diggin In The Crates classic and should already be in every hip-hop head collection

The tone of this album is totally differant than their 1st lp runaway slave. Goodfellas is a much more darker affair, Show comes off with some bleak and sinister beats and I have to say they wouldn't look out of place in a David Fincher movie. It takes a couple of listens for this album to grow on you but once you have grasped it's essence you soon realise that it is a dark hearted masterpiece. Even AG has matured lyrically and his words carry a sinister tinge to it. Gone has the conscience vibrancy of Runaway Slave and instead you have a shady streetlife narrative. Top tracks include the lord finesse produced posse opus Add On and Theres a time for.. Overall great stuff and stands as a testament as to why the DITC collective are so highly regarded within the hip hop field.

From the outset of Showbiz and AG's 1991 EP lead single "Soul Clap," the Bronx natives asserted their stance as the progenitors of hardcore hip-hop, epitomizing the art of braggadocio rap with the rhythm and drums of boom bap beats. Their style was a natural transition from the freestyle battles on the block, which is how AG got Lord Finesse's attention, and helped formulate the trademark hip-hop produced by the DITC (Diggin' in the Crates) crew. Along with other artists Diamond D, Buckwild, Fat Joe, OC, and, last but not least, Big L, DITC became a staple to any and all underground heads, bringing forth that bass-heavy tempo and hard drum-lines interspersed with creative, looming samples to add some old school flavor to the new school age.

Enter 1995: DITC had already a plethora of solid releases from Lord Finesse, Fat Joe, and Diamond D a few years earlier, cementing the crew's reputation for simplistic yet booming hip-hop. However, the tides were seemingly changing and newer releases from 1994 onwards were indicative of a change in sound and speak - while effective in many cases, they were nonetheless stepping away from that sound typified in the DITC camp. The challenge for the underground kings, then, came to be to adjust and mould their signature groove with a new age feel. In stepped Show & AG. Although the name had changed, the crew was nevertheless the same and more than willing to change with the times, while hitting on all levels which they themselves had previously constructed. The result was "Goodfellas" - an album that fit well into that pantheon of hip-hop eras (1994 to 1996) and beamed as the penultimate cap to DITC's string of solid efforts.

I am a huge fan of DITC and all its members solo work and this one does not disappoint. Make sure you get it.

This album is quite simply that solid sophomore LP that everyone looks for, but few are capable of producing. A.G. stays true to his gigantic status, while Showbiz comes through with the eerie beats, one of which is appropriately dubbed the Nyte Tyme mix. The dynamic duo from the Bronx proves that "the crates is rolling strong" by "adding on" another tight LP to the Patterson Projects resume.

This album is just as good, if not better, than Show & A.G.'s debut album. Every beat hits harder than a straight shot of vodka, and A.G. has matured immensely on the mic. I let this album spin on "random" in my CD player and enjoy fat track after fat track.
