DA STORM IS DA BOMB

"I have slept on these guys for years but not the rest of Boot Camp. I read some reviews here and decided to try the STORM..It defini9tely feels like its a dark stormy day in NY when I listen to this, the more I hear it the more I like it. Someone wrote that its the worst of the four Boot Camp albums at the time..Thats because Enta Da Stage and Da Shinin are 2 of the toip 20 Hip Hop Albums of all time. The Storm is better than Heltah Skeltahs Nocturnal. Ruck had minimal skills. Starang is the true shiner in OGC. I love how the album has a feel to it. Its an album that should be listened to straight through to get the whole effect. The beats are great, simple and grimy, how hip hop was intended to be. Starang Hurricane is the joint on this one."
Don't Sleep On This Era Of Hip-Hop (Classics)

"It is now 2007 and I still bang this classic joint. I really didn't appreciate it back in 96 because there were so many hot artists out at that time, but considering the current state of hip-hop or lack thereof, this is a certifiable classic!! One thing I always tell people was that 1993-96 was arguably the height of hip hop (before Puffy and Dupri pimped H.E.R. out).
Think about it (Nas, Rae & Ghostface purple tape, Ol Dirty, Jeru, Kool-G Rap, Keith Murray, Dice Raw who ate up BIG in a freestyle, Smif-N-Wessun, Gangstarr, Outkast, OGC, Black Moon, Heltah Skeltah, M.O.P., Madd Skillz, Smooth Da Hustler, The Chronic, B.I.G., Tupac, Flava In Ya Ear Remix, Crooklyn Dodgers, Group Home, Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth, Diamond D., The Alchoholics, Mobb Deep, Tribe Called Quest, Redman, KRS-One, even the Fugees was bangin) and countless others I omitted. All of them dropped classic joints at the same time!! That is unbelievable when yoou look at the mediocrity that exists today. Remember the Source Awards when Suge basically spit on Puffy and offered to take his artists if "they were tired of the producer dancing all in the videos."
Oh yea, don't forget Yo! Raps on MTV.
All of those artists joints still bang today and these so-called stars and producers of today would have been laughed out of a mic booth if they had to compete in that era. "Da Storm" still reigns 11 years later. Don't sleep on Louieville Sluggah, Starang, Top Dog and the shining era of hip-hop minus the flash and bling (and every other commercial on TV pimping H.E.R.)!"
The Storm Excellent content and lyrical SKILL
