“…I know the code of the streets/Pop the pound at the loudest clown…”
It’s cool to hear De La’s beat given a harder sound with Vegas’ sharp nasal tone.
A few other albums that have made their way to consistent play in my rotation.
This one was sparked by the recent Masta Ace & G.Rap posts. But I forgot the tape opened with the ill-fated lines “Main Source forever…” as Large Professor spoke too soon & the crew broke up right after this release. The tracks with Puba, Pharcyde, Ace & G.Rap are all well worth a listen.
While those chosen few of us wait for his next release, this mixtape is sufficient. The bass-heavy “I Like It” with it’s extra raunchy lyrics, gets repeated repeatedly.
Ahh…ever the conundrum, Mike collected various mixtape tracks & other loose songs, forming them as this release. While it has it’s ups & downs, the highs are high. “Mama Said,” “Speak Lord” and “Aye O” make it worth the listen.
