"Don't sleep on this hard hitting album from Texas, Welcome 2 Tha Real World. If you enjoy music from the likes of Street Military, Aggravated, SPC, 20-2-Life etc then you ought to find this one for the collection.
To start with, it's got some fire production, handled by Street Military's own Icey Hott, Sean Jemison (who produced on all of ESG's earlier albums) , DJ Storm, Jay Tha Sinnista and D Redd from the Botany Boys all add to the roster. It's all tight from beginning to end...
The album's subject matter is about being on the grind 24-7, and packin' some heat with that... They cross into criminal, mental and spiritual elements as they bring forth the prevalent issue of trying to survive in life's realities. The song "9-2-5" is about just that... "My.9.2.5, stayin' alive, stayin alive" goes the chorus, as you are hit with the reality of the message 2Real are getting across...to just stay alive day to day. The album is a mix of both hardcore tracks, and some slightly more laid back ones, but at the same time still serious as hell.
Klondike Kat, who never fails to disappoint, provides some dope vocals over the track "Plexin", as 2Real really get on the murderous side of things lyrically, and rip into it.
"Horror" features Half Dead Organization members J-Bone and Brandi, and the final track that ends the album is a tight cut called "Game", which sees a feature from Lil Flea of Street Military. Lil Flea and 2Real blend perfectly over a track, that you know can only have been made in Texas...
An album that's well above average, don't look it over, if you are a fan of underground Texas this is for you.
