Show some respect for the legend Kool Keith, don't buy this album. It's a collection of practice runs and things that were never supposed to see the light of day. Ced Gee released this himself ...
It was this type of perpetrating that prompted Keith and Tim Dog to hit the studio again and release an album simply titled "ULTRA-Big Time." You should buy that one instead and peep the original "Keep it Real," a song targeting Ced Gee and advising fans not to buy his 'basement tapes.'
Fun Fact; The cover of this album is a strange collage of obscure pictures put together in photoshop. Keith flipped when he saw a face on this album cover that he didn't even recognize. The guy was just as surprised to see his face on the album! Show Keith and Tim Diggity some love and buy the "Ultra" album instead. This is an illegitemate album. Keith is a perfectionist and he obviously isn't proud of this material. Don't buy it. ...

This collection of unreleased Ultra basement tapes apparently was released without the legendary Kool Keith's consent. That sucks. The CD doesn't, though. Hilarious Kool Keith/Ultra brilliance. "Biscuits and Eggs" and "I'm F*ckin Flippin" are as bizarre and brilliant as anything Kool Keith has ever released. "Grip the Mic" is a smoooooove Keith freestyle over a fly beat. "Catchin Bodies" has that 1992 jazzy flavor with Keith catching wreck on the mic. Again, it sucks that Keith didn't want this released, but its a must have for the Kool Keith/Ultra completest.

"NEW YORK WHAT IS FUNKY" IS A BETTER SET THAN THEIR A&R FORCE TO DESTROY THE GROUP LP,NOW DEFUNCT "FUNK YOUR HEAD UP",AS UNDERGROUND AS THEY WOULD LIKE TO STAY,THE IMMACCULATE FLOWS OF THESE MC'S ARE TOO MUCH TO LEAVE ALONE. KOOL KEITH'S SOLO JOINTS WINS AGAIN,BUT NOTHING MAKE ULTRAMAGNETIC MORE SPACED OUT LYRICALLY THAN THE SLAMMIN' PRODUCTION BY CED-GEE. THIS IS BEYOND "FUNKY".
