This CD is the bomb!!!!!!!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Eightball and MJG are some talented young men. the whole CD is the bomb, but my favorite songs are Break-a-***** college, and lay it down. I do recommend that you all go purchase this CD you want regret it promise. Much Love from Shon representing that SOUTHSIDE HOUSTON TEXAS."

"Ball and G came with nothin short of fire in 1994's classic On the Outside Looking In. The album is loaded with hard, political, trill, and fiery lyrics, so you know they comin' real. Beatwise, the songs for the most part are immaculate, with a mix of that syrupy southern twang and whiny G-Funk. They come bangin' on wax on "Lick Em Up Shot" with a menacing beat. I love the Issac Hayes sample on No Mercy, paired with an awesome whiny keyboard riff. Ideas of the black experience and racism is totally evident on the classic "So What U Sayin'" with a classic guitar riff and keyboard driven G-Funk beat. The title track touches on the "pen," the "system," or the "tank,"whichever you prefer, and the realities surrounding it, all over a sick, melodic beat. All in all, this album deserves classic status because of the top-notch lyrics and production."
