From the time he appeared on Goodie Mob's debut album, Soul Food, Atlanta's Cool Breeze has had one goal in mind--representing the Dirty South. His freshman effort, East Point's Greatest Hit, aptly showcases his clever wordplay and distinct flow; on the lead single, "Watch for the Hook," Cool Breeze is joined by fellow Dungeon Family members Outkast and Goodie Mob for a succession of rapid-fire verses and tightly spat rhymes. Organized Noize's multilayered production style, which combines drum programming and live instrumentation, becomes so captivating that one may wish for an instrumental version of the album. However, once the focus shifts back to the vocals, one will discover how appropriate the title East Point's Greatest Hit truly is. --Celine Wong

"Being an East Point native, I had to go out and cop this album as soon as it dropped back in March of 99'. After listening, I was not disappointed. The production from Organized Noize, a crew who can do no wrong when it comes to creativity, was on point. Cool Breeze's profound lyrics are especially displayed on tracks such as The Field and Tenn Points. If you are a die-hard Dungeon Family fan, then I would advise you to add this one to your collection."
This album ISN'T really East Points Greatest Hit

"When the single "Watch For The Hook" came out, I thought Cool Breeze dropped the weakest verse on what was otherwise a dope song. Still, being a Dungeon Family fan, I picked up his album, and I got just about what I expected: Nothing groundbreaking, but nothing horrible either. As with many albums today, the best part of East Points Greatest Hit lies within the extremely well crafted beats (most are handled nicely by Organized Noize). If nothing else, you should peep this album just for the production. Also, Cool Breeze shines through on the lyrics of a few tracks (such as "The Field" and "Tenn Points"), when he leaves alone the bragging and tough talk, and deals with heavier, more socially prevelent subject matter. Still, as usual, much of Cool's lyrics tend to bore, not just beacause of the subjects, but because of his flow, which never changes at all throughout the whole album. He usually only rhymes the last word of each bar, and switches rhyming words every two bars, without any transistions. It's basically just a whole verse of 'couplets'. After a few songs, this rudimentry type of flow begins to wear thin. My second complaint is that this album is edited. It doesn't bother me a bit if an album has no cussing (in fact sometimes it's refreshing), but I'd rather have the lyrics changed than have them scratched and beeped out. It makes the album sound unprofessional, and more like something you'd hear on the radio. Altogether, this album shows that Cool Breeze isn't really East Points greatest hit, but he still hits more than he misses."
