Top Customer Reviews
The first FOUR tracks lay down the foundation of this solid album. The first three tracks highlight the strengths of Ice Cube. M.C. Ren and Eazy-E. The forth shows how underrated M.C. Ren is within the world of hip-hop. The rest of the album is certainly not weak at all (well, except for the "Bonus Beats" track off the remastered edition) and serves as a solid structure upon that foundation.
My favorite track on the album is "Quiet On Tha Set" which features M.C. Ren dishing out some fat rhymes against a very sick beat. It's just so good that it deserves to be cranked up. It is an infectious groove. Trust me. Words don't do it justice.
Other highlights: Eazy-E's ode to O.E. (8-Ball), Tha D.O.C. leading off on "Parental Discretion" (prior to having his vocal chords slashed), all of Ice Cube's contributions (especially on "Dopeman") and especially D.J. Yella for keepin' it all funky 'nuff.
I don't claim to be knowledgeable of hip-hop. I do know that this is the album to get for some timeless oldskool music which has stood the test of time. I also higly recommend its followup, "Efil4zaggin", which is even stronger than this. Get both at once. Now.
