It's different, so don't compare it to another...

"Get it? Good. Now ignore any criticisms of this album that say its too "nice", or "soft" or "cheesy"...because that's just the ignorant view. "Life of a kid in the ghetto" is one of the best albums to come out of 1991,along w/Main Source's - Breaking Atoms, with Ed O.G.'s inspiring councious lyrics and Teddy Tedd,Special K & Joe Mansfield's fresh beats this album is undoubtedly is one of the most slept on hiphop albums yet. Ed O.G. Touches upon so many important issues here, that are told like it is. "Be a father to your child" is my favourite track on the album, speakin upon the issue of father's leaving their children to be cared for by the mother, and not carrying out their responsibilites as man. This is one of the most hard-hitting and down to earth tracks ever, regardless of genre. Then, you have "speak upon it" where Ed decides to talk about the injustices of being a black man, and uses examples like Charles Stewart to emphasise how biased the court system can be. Tracks like "I'm different" talks about why they are different to other groups, and what makes them. Similary "I got to have it", which samples Big Daddy Kane's "Aint no half steppin" is a timeless classic, with its unforgettable funky beat & flawless flow. This album is too slept on, and needs to be checked out by mainly people who are a fan of hiphop back when it meant something, and was used as a way for opinionated black men to express their views. Do not sleep. (By the way Edo G is still doin his thing 13 years later with pete rock on "My own worst enemy"...check it out) PEACE

"One of my favorite rap cd's in the early '90's. I had the cassette tape back in my high school days. Took me years to get the cd, since it's out of print. If you love old school rap this is one you need to listen to. As in another review, I totally agree, they were defintely an underrated rap group. Man what happened to those old school days. Rap had defintely changed, I stopped listening when 2-pac and Biggie were killed. Rap hasnt been the same since."

"Ed O.G. was definitely one of the most underrated rappers of the early 90's. Maybe it was because he's from BOSTON..."
