An Overlooked Gem (4 Stars)
Norfeest | Washington DC USA | 02/11/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There's so much to be said about this album, but I don't have all the words for it. You just have to pop this in your ride and let it speak for itself. There are so many tight songs on this album that when you play it for the first time, you're going to keep on playing it for about two weeks. The song that most people will remember most from this album is "Caps Get Peeled" feat. MC Eiht (which is a classic joint in my opinion). As a matter of fact, I STILL have the 12" single and all of the remixes for that song, but there are other songs on this album that will keep your head nodding for hours like "Mo' Love", "Digga Bigga Ditch", and "Things In Tha Hood". The bulk of the production is handled by Sedric "Swift" Barnett, but MC Eiht & DJ Slip, Warren G, and The D.O.C. also contribute their talents as well.

There are a few songs on the album that seem like a waste of disc space, but not many. "Pass The Hooter" was the obligatory "g-funk" track that every rapper at the time forced onto their album due to the success of Dr Dre's Chronic LP. And tracks like "Put Your Locs On" and "2-2 The Chest" aren't bad, but they are definitely skippable if you're not in the mood for them. And "You Can Get The D*ck" is plain ol' wack.

Despite their 1st LP being overlooked by just about everyone when it first came out, DFC still managed to put out another album, but they never managed to reclaim the magic they had on this album. I'd reccomend this to anyone because it's still good 11 years after its release (Damn!! That was 11 years ago?!). There are some suspect joints, but the good ones make this album worth owning. Jump on this album if the opportunity ever shows itself.

Standout Tracks: Roll With The Clan, Da Bomb, Things In My Hood feat. Nate Dogg, Hands On My Nine, Caps Get Peeled feat. MC Eiht (My Favorite), Digga Bigga Ditch, and Mo' Love"
Older but still a good disc to have

"This disc is one that has a mix of different styles of rap, the album also contains both the gentle and hard core lyrics, with the smooth rhymes and the beats and bass that their matched with, along with some help from Warren G and MC Breed this disc is one that won't disappiont anyone who picks it up."

"After hearing mc breed and dfc before I had a feeling this would be good. Its not a classic, but its still a good album all the way through. It has a few guest appearances from some well known artists. The beats are sounding nice and the rapping is cool too. Theres a few tracks that ain't too good, but most of the album is ok. Its not as good as breeds stuff, but definately worth getting. So make sure you pick this up if you don't have it. Later!"
