Good but could have been better
on July 20, 2005
Not all the artists listed on the cover perfom. It is from the years 1995-1999
1. They should show less Benzino. This guy is using the source to boost his rap career (if it ever existed)
2. Not all performances of the artists listed on the cover shown. Instead we are shown 5 second snippets from their performances with different music in the background . Eve; Master P; Outkast; Lil' Kim Puff Daddy & Nas Lauryn Hill.
3. The Performances are great . The Highlights being the
Death Row inmates perfoming hits mostly from the Murder Was The Case CD era : Dr Dre - Keep Their Heads Ringing; Nate Dogg; Dogg Pound; Sam Sneed; Rage - Afro Puffs ; DJ Quick & then finally Snoop Dogg - murder was the case remix; this is just b4 Tupac joined the label.
Bad Boy performances with Craig Mack ;Faith; Total; Puffy ; Junior Mafia with Lil' Kim and finally the Notorious BIG.
Tupac - Out On Bail
Snoop Dogg again with Xzibit & Nate Dogg - B* Please
Wu-Tang - Cream
Method Man & Wu-Tang - Bring The Pain
DMX - a mix of his ealier hits including Ruff Ryders anthem
The Cash Money Millionaires going through some of their hits
There are also those controversial moments by Suge Knight & Snoop Dogg and A look at hip hop fashion at the awards ceremonies
Overall a good DVD because of the live performances but you'll feel short changed because of the perfomances shown only as 5 second snippets and irritated by Benzino
This DVD pack has a second DVD featuring Artist from the Source's Unsigned Hyped column. The alumni include Eminem; BIG & DMX. Then there is a feature on unknown artists from the column and a Battle contest
