(5 out of 5 stars)

"That's right, the beats (each produced by Barry G himself) are rough. And phat. And Old School. And gangsta. You can't call yourself a fan of rap unless you can feel the beats on this album. This is what started it all. This album is one of Grapetree Records' earliest releases, and is sadly hard-to-get. After listening to this, you'll want to hear more of Barry. And the only other album I've heard that he's featured on is Controverse All-Star by Lil' Raskull, which he produced three tracks on. But he hasn't done anything since. That's six years. Let's hope a Grapetree staff member is reading this right now and decides to bring Barry G back. But back to the album itself. Barry G delivers his message of hope to the streets over rugged gangsta beats. Some of the best tracks on this are: "I got 'em" which he presents his song from the viewpoint of a giant. Here's a sample of the lyrics:"Barry G is a giant/walking through the land of the lost/at any cost/saving plenty souls like penticost"Another great track is "Step to Jehova". It talks about how you don't want to face God as a non-believer when you die. This track has perhaps the most rugged beat on the album. Finally, "Ain't nothin'" is a wothwhile track. It talks about how as a believer, never let anything change your mind about your faith.As I understand, this cd is on "Limited Availability". I strongly suggest purchasing this album. It'll put some Old School in your collection. If you like anything by Lil' Raskull, you'll love this album. Check it out."
