"First let me say that the reviews by "tim", "otg", and "fatha" are moronic at best. I've had this album for, I believe over 3 years now and it still gets regular rotation. Mind you i have over 500 cd's to choose from in my collection. This is grass roots hiphop... beats (bangers and jazzy mellow joints), lyrics are crazy..see the other review on here with the quoted verse... and just look at the friggin album cover...Ed O G is no chicken head/laffy taffy rapper. Maybe from a producers standpoint approximately 3 of the beats are monotonous.. but still remind u of the golden age of hip hop...simple loops and raw introspective, street thug and street philosopher rolled into one album. ED O G is one of the only hip hop prophets left!!!"
5 stars doesn't actually cut it.

"You should have 10 stars, this guy is a lyrical genius. For those giving this album 1-3 stars, I understand your opinion, but maybe give it another listen too. I find things everyday now different and more exciting than the last. When I first bought this album, I kinda thought the same thing, "oh this isn't really that good, I wish it was better!" So I put it down for 6 months and listened to other things. A week ago I picked it back up again, and never realised how good this album really was. Super Production, awesome beats, amazing vocabulary and wordplay, and all around phenominal album. To say it is worth buying, is an understatement, read the reviews that mention the track titles, and then listen to it. It will most definitely change your life."
Ed O.G....Talk About Finding A Diamond in The Rough!!

"First, let me be honest about something. I'm a very close-minded
individual when it comes to my Hip-Hop, and I only
listen to certain artists. I don't like commercial music, and
I don't watch videos or listen to the radio. I'm into lyrisict
like Nas, Common, Rass Kass, Biggie, Pac, Black Starr, anyone
who's great. I never did hear of Ed O.G. until about a year or two ago, even though he's been around for over a decade.
When my friend played one of Ed's singles, from his now
"classic" The Truth Hurts, I went bananas...the song
is laced with Premo's proudction and timeless lyrics"Alcohol and weed is my vices
to see my daughter smile is priceless
I leave the nicest lifeless
Return like Christ in a crisis
Take this American Pie, and distribute out slices"Wow!!I'm a M.C. myself, and this man's lyrical ability inspires
me. I went out and bout his album, and the man's music
exceeded my expectations. Pure Hip-Hop...if you're into
Nelly, Ja-Rule, Baby, P.Diddy, most of the stuff on 106 and Park..then
DONT PURCHASE THIS ALBUM!!! This is Real Hip-Hop!!!"
