I remember when I first bought the tape back during the summer of 92. I was told by a co-worker that it was the bomb so I had to go out and get it. I fell in love with it after hearing it the 1st time. If you are looking for real hardcore gangsta rap and not the watered down "club" version of today then this is a must. Not only are there dope ryhmes but this CD has some tight BASS. I have to turn down the Bass level on my CD player on the track 1-900 SPICE because the bass is so heavy. My favorites are EastBaygangsta, 187proof, Peace to my nine, Welcome to the Ghetto and F'' in the game. I still like listening to this CD today even though it is 10years old. This is probably Spice's best CD of all time, it is a classic.

No doubt many of you have slept on Spice 1. But you must know, Spice 1 is the real deal. You will have a hard time finding a fresher, more hardcore brotha kick real gangsta rhymes. He will crack you in the head with a bottle of St. Ides just for maddoggin' him. Spice 1 is straight West Coast, and comes correct with vivid street tales, social commentary, menace, and wit, accompanied by gangstered out G-funk bass moves. His flow is versatile and tight. He is not a man of just one style. Spice 1 can flip it quick, slow, Jamacian, etc. In addition, 1 was down with Tupac and Too-Short, so there's no doubt. And when he tells you that he's gonna 'kill your baby, your dog, and your Mutha F'in family', you know he means it. Spice 1 is also quite the metaphorical master on tracks like '187 Proof'. If you don't know, you owe it to yourself to find out. Check this West COast Mack now!

That's Spice 1's first album. Spice 1, one of the greatest rappers ever to hit the West Coast rap scene presnets gangsta rap on a whole new level with cold stories about murderin' and killin' without any second thoughts. Spice has never given a f*** about radio airplay, he's just doin' his own thing, keepin' the gangsta flava popin'. This is his first album. Get this one and all his other albums too and you get tight prodiction, lyrics and delivery and tens of brilliant songs by this so talented artist commin' from the Dirty Bay.

This 1992 debut from the great and very underrated Spice 1 is one of the finest [as well as one of the most violent] Gangsta Rap albums ever made. Coming from an era where Gangsta Rap was beginning to dominate Hip Hop, Spice pulls absolutely no punches whatsoever on this very fine debut. Here, Spice sounds young and very hungry as evidenced by classic tracks like 187 Proof and Peace to my Nine and this album is a testament to why Spice 1 should be considered one of the greatest rappers to ever come from the West Coast. While the production on this album may sound a little dated by today's standards, This album still sounds very good 24 years later. The best songs of the album are Peace to my Nine [best song on the album], Welcome to the Ghetto [one of Spice's very best songs ever a MUST-HEAR], 1-800-Spice [On this track, Spice goes full-blown Reggae and the results are nothing short of AMAZING the phone messages in between verses are VERY funny too!], 187 Proof, Young N', 187 Pure, Break Yourself, East Bay Gangster, and In My Neighborhood. While this album isn't quite as good as the next two that would follow it, This is surely one of Spice's best accomplishments and it needs to be heard by all fans of Gangsta Rap! [Note: Some of this album's songs were originally released on Spice 1's very rare debut EP Let it be Known and while 5 of that EP's songs appear here, 2 of the EP's songs do not appear here and remain unreleased on any of Spice's albums or compilations]

I used to listen to this album when I was in jr. high, back in the early 90s when it first came out. I couldn't find this album in any record stores. They were all telling me that they can't even order it anymore. Amazon was the only place I could find it. This album is still one of my favorites.

If you grew up in the 90s you know who Spice 1 and if you don't then here is your chance. This album is a perfect representation of 90s gangsta rap. Not the stuff you here today. This music paved the way. So download this and enjoy. It will not disappoint.

This self titled debut by Spice 1 is a good place to start if you wish to experience the greatly under appreciated Bay Area rapper's early career, but is hardly his best album (though, not his worst). It's an over all enjoyable album with no tracks that will have you hitting the skip button, and as with Spice's other early Jive discs, you're getting your moneys worth in terms of quantity as Spice doesn¡¦t weigh his albums down with intrusive skits and keeps the guest spots to an absolute minimum (from what I remember, there's a guest on Break Yourself, and that¡¦s it). Spice introduces the hardcore, violent lyrics and gory inner city narratives that he would continue indulging in throughout his career, and his lyrics, while not outstanding, are quite good and hit most of the usual gangster points (guns, murder, drugs, etc.) spot on (though there are no sex songs or overly misogynistic lyrics). That said, Spice is hardly in top form on this album. It's somewhat understandable considering it is his first CD, Spice has a very different tone and pitch to his voice and his flow is a tad awkward in spots. Also his lyrics do sometimes fall short of greatness (as much as I love Spice, he does occasionally drop a whack lyric here and there), which mixed with his amateurish flow make for some eye brow raising lines ("flip you over, fry your ass like a patty melt" is a notably corny line) and its obvious that he is somewhat new to the game.

So, lyrics are not exactly mind blowing (and occasionally bad), but fans of gangster rap with tastes like mine, looking for some cold blooded murder rap will be pleased, and Spice's flow and high pitched, raspy voice don't really detract from your enjoyment given his energy and passion.
