"Don't get caught sleeping on PO-HOP(Portland, Oregon hip hop)! The Jus Family "Savages" have a unique and Quality sound. Some of production on this album is Amazing. Bosko,(who has been around since he produced "In Living color") is up there with DR. DRE and Chief XL as the West's best producers. Cool Nutz himself and Torrey Ward manifest the rest of the beats on SUAM. Cool Nutz third album is also Lyrically Diverse with messages ranging from the anti shady "spread love" to anti violence with "put your guns up". What really goes on in the "deep dark crevices" of Portland's streets is revealed on "Late night licks" and "Street Science". Of course, some of that Flamboyant Portland Game is spit over "for the ladies". The end of the CD holds a pleasant surprise with "Roll Call", an extended track with 16 MC's (all but one talented) seemingly freestyling over a nice beat. This song shows Cool Nutz' respect for other mc's and how he gives others a chance to shine and represent. Cool Nutz put PO-Hop on the map and has done it with class, modesty, and originality. Support a true hustler, and peep the original flavor of hip hop from a city that many in the U.S. know little about."
This Cd has the beats like no other artist and is bangin'

"This Cd is off the hook, this is the beging of Oregon rap becoming very big, when I heard this I was in a zone, cuz the whole cd is loaded with hot tracks, Cool Nutz and Bosko have phat tracks on this, but the best song to me on this is For The Ladies Feat.Suites Cuttingham and D.One, this is great P-town Rap, buy it as soon as you can"
Buy the album and watch PO-HOP blow up

"Speakin Upon a Million is to Portland hip-hop what Straight out of Compton was to gangsta rap. There isn't a wack track on the disc. Every song is original and a number of local rappers make cameos-not to mention BA from 3XKrazy. Some of the tightest producing around."
