CD Reviews

One Of The Most Slept On Classics
H. Cuthbertson | Erlanger, Kentucky United States | 06/29/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I usually don't do album reviews but I gotta say this was tight from beginning to end and I was shook that this was given a low reading by a magazine I call "The Sauce" So many of yall need to stop reading magazine ratings and come to sites likes this and read your own peers ratings. Word of mouth is bliss. A-G-2-A-KE who came out on Rap-A-Lot hasn't come out with a cd since this classic. I'm salty they didn't "make it" because this was heavily slept on!"
Northside Up! Another Classic In The Rap-A-Lot Legacy

"A-G-2-A-Ke comes out real hard and hungry on their first release, 1998's Mil-Ticket on Rap-A-Lot Records. Let me say, it is awesome! These guys put Mil Town, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on the map. These guys let it be know that they are hustlers; they get their grind on thru the whole album. Productionwise, this album stomps hard with a mix of laid back G-Funk and rattlin and bass heavy midwestern funk, sometimes meshing with a nice southern influence due to the label being a southern empire. The beats are awesome, mostly handled by 88 Keys, a few by Scarface (Brad Jordan, namely the ones he appears on), and Mike Dean adds a litle somethin too. The lyrics are hardcore and raw throughout, even though they light up a J on "R U High Yet?" with Yukmouth over a relaxed G-Funk beat perfect to slide n glide to. They also reminisce about one of the homies on "C-Lo" over a serious, whiny relaxed beat. These cats get a litle flossy on the laid back "Big Balla Society" over a twangy G-Funk style beat. A-G-2-A-Ke gets cautionary on "Tommorow Ain't Promised" and "Can't Nobody Change This" all over nice melodic beats, the former produced by Face. Now, these cats can rap a different speeds, from normal to fast like many midwestern rappers do, and each has his own flow; G-Mone and Mac Fee spit venom throughout. "Cocaine" is menacing with a bit about how drugs rule the game and the hood; you can also find this track on Scarface's 1998 album/compilation My Homies, also a recommended listen. I believe they have a second album, Ball $treet from 2001, but I know little about this one; it seems rare and expensive. It could be good, but I have never heard it yet. But as for Mil Ticket, definitely support the Rap-A-Lot legacy and scope up this slept on classic; this album did not garner a 5 star train for no reason!!!"
My favorite Rap album ever...

"Ahh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-AHH! From the beginning of this album to the last note of the last track is literrally explosive. So many good tracks, and I can't really explain it to a non listener, one would have to listen to it first, then, only then will they understand that this album is like a great movie, it's the Pulp Fiction, the Godfather of rap albums. I was severely impressed.Every track is good, but these are my picks:
