Few groups have kept the Parliament-Funkadelic legacy alive in hip-hop more than Digital Underground. Their greasy-spoon beats are saturated in P-Funk-style rhythms, and they aspire to a P-Funk tradition that celebrates life, blackness, and a prophetic vision for a utopian future. Only their second album in five years (after releasing three from 1990 to 1993), Who Got the Gravy? brings on everything from deliciously nasty dance jams like "Wind Me Up" to a bugged-out duel between Humpty Hump and the legendary Biz Markie on "The Odd Couple." Big Pun and KRS-One also pop in to cameo, but the album's best guest is Oakland's up-and-coming MC Mystik; she helps turn "April Showers" into a seductive but groovy love song supreme. --Oliver Wang

"Digital Underground have once again made an album that, despite it's goofy appearance, continues to elevate hip hop. This album doesn't have the same sound that the other D.U. albums have, but instead the break new ground. On the track holla holiday, the freaks of the industry flow about one of their favorite passtimes. On the sidesplitting "man's girl" humpty takes on the personality of peanut hakeem anafu washington "frostbite slim". there are other classics here, like the odd couple, featuring biz markee and humpty snapping at each other. another top notch track is wind me up, guranteed to get the party started. get the gravy, you won't be upset."
Uneven but still cool ...

"It's been a while since I've checked out a Digital joint and nostalgia played a factor in my picking this one up. It's a decent effort, highlighted by party anthem "Holla Holiday" and the smooth, ambient stylings of "Man's Girl", but don't expect anything on par with "Sex Packets" and "Sons of the P""
COP THIS. A MUST FOR ALL HIPHOP HEADZ
