"When I first got the cd, my friends and I turned up the bass and banged the speakas OUT! ... all the way home through every track, all are good ... I couldn't find one thing wrong. For those of you that don't know much about 'em, buy the cd it will change your perspective about christian rap. 4 those that say they use the "N" word, well I think that's part of being a gangsta and in the way its used it shouldn't be viewed as offensive. And their name, don't being sayin that gangsta and gospel together is bad ... its catchy and the best rap christian name I've heard ... well if anything buy the cd ... and their old stuff is good too .. LIKe "do or die" which I have. If you wanna hear some newer stuff they have a newer cd called "all mixed up" out soon"
The "n" word?

"Listen bro, grap a dictionary and look up the word. N!gg3r is not a "racial slur" used in a certain context. Snoop dog calls his "homeboys" and enemies by the same name, n!gg3r. Listen, the word is so widely used that it is literally used everywhere. In one side you become a racist and on the other you address a good friend or hated enemy. Why you can't just get over it and realize that they are a christian group reaching dying gangsters in the city in which they minister and if one little word brings them closer to the lost then I say GO Boyz! Stop looking at the little picture and view it from the big where the world is evil and we live in it! How can you fight fire if you gotz no fire. Sometimes it takes a controled burn to prevent big daddy forest fire. I'm not saying that racial slurs or any other form of expletative is exceptable but I am saying that we should build each other up continually even if we disagree. You can't win a war without a little disagreement and a lot of support. send me some mail "G"( I didn't write the word 'cause I didn't want this posting service to drop my post)"
Tight, But Could've Been Better

"By the time this particular album dropped, and since Do or Die, the GG'z had long split with former producer DJ Dove, switched to B-rite Records9which featured Kirk Franklin at the time), and with all new production talents on their album, they came back with an all new sound for the 99...the Chronic had come and gone, gangsta rap had played out as hip hop continued to mourn Pac & Biggie, and the likes of the Hot Boys & Jay-Z began to put the club/bling into hip hop. Musically and production-wise, the album is on point and is current. However, for die-hard GG fans of gang Affiliated & Do Or Die, the "bling'bling" flavor had many of us missing the hard, Bangin' On Wax-like edge of the 1st 2 releases, and it seemed to many as if they were changing their style to go mainstream. The cuts that will take you down ole school GG memory lane,however, are Live It Up & Let Us Pray. The rest, like 2Pac's posthumous releases, are geared toward a younger hip hop generation. But the lyrics are on point, as always. Double G'z UP!!!"
