"D.B.A. Flip is a rather unknown rapper from Inglewood, California, and his album Flip On This is rather unknown; it came out in 1996, and it is now 2007, and I am the first to review it. The album does not break any new ground lyrically, but it is fun to bump all the way through with very good production. He handles much of it along with some various co-producers. For the most part, it has that bouncy late '96 G-Funk to open up the late 90's underground West Coast G-Funk explosion, for the mid 90's were the years where G-Funk was much more mainstream. I love the "Just Got Paid" sample on "It's Friday Night (Just Got Paid);" the beat is twangy and laidback with a dope vocorder in the hook. "Pass The joint" is the hooter track a nice relaxer again with a talk box. The vocorder comes in a good few of the tracks, and I am a huge fan of it. "It Ain't Nothing Nice" is a dope one with Ras Kass and Flip kickin some gangsta rhymes; both flow great over a nice underground beat. "The Vapors" has a beat similar, but not as melodic as Snoop's "Gin And Juice;" it's decent, but not groundbreaking. "Stay True Damu" is where Flip is pretty hot; it's a bouncy G-Funk scorcher cautioning the youth about the trappings and temptations of fast money and crime; he has a decent, if humorous story in the last verse. He flows good over the beat and gets his point across. There is some filler like "I Got Money," but even tracks like that ain't all that bad. It still holds its own; though, it may take a little time for some to grow on you. Overall, a tight album from D.B.A. Flip. Get it for the ride or the party."
