CD Reviews

Superb | Fayetteville, GA | 06/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best album to be put out by a Dogg Pound Gangsta outside of Death Row. All the songs flex with tight a$$ beats and hard hitting lyrics. My personal favorites are We Be Puttin It Down, Cookin Cookies, and The Stand. Get this album if your tired of rappers with nuthin to say with no skill and lame beats. This album has everything it needs covered!"
4.5 star solo debut from Dogg Pound homie

"After Death Row collapsed a new star from Long Beach emergered from the extended DPG Family & it was Bad Azz, who drops a straight up hard LBC/DPG-like sounding release for his solo debut. Packed with 14 songs, 2 are west coast classics, 2 I skip, and the other 10 are good or great songs. Guests are all DPG affiliates or his homies from the Low Lifes, and are on 8 of the songs. The production is great and is handled by some of the west's better producers at the time. Kenny McCloud & Gangsta of the Comrads each do 3 songs, Ant Banks does 2 great songs as does Soopafly, DJ Pooh, Flip, Big Kid, and Lil Beau of the Low Lifes each do 1 song. Bad be spitting some good lyrics and his flow is great over some of these beats, even some of the wacker sounding songs he tears up. Amust have west coast album for fans of the DPG/LBC type rap.

"Bad Azz brings heat to the table in 1998 on his solo debut. The beats are variable on this album, ranging from G-Funk you can lowride to, to some old-fashioned rap and hip hop beats. Ant Banks produces 2 of the hottest tracks on here "Ghetto star" and "I Ain't Concerned." "We Be Puttin It Down" is a fun bouncy collabo between Bad azz and Snoop over a G-Funk beat and a talk box I think that says "roll, roll, roll." Bad Azz does get contemplative in the phat track, "My People." The track "Livin It Up" is hot also; the foreground beat is bouncy and fast paced, and the keyboard driven background beat reminds the listener of old school G-Funk, perfect to play at a party. The beat at the very beginning of "My People" (before it changes to the actual beat of the song)should have been used as a beat on another song; it is the best beat on the album."
