"To Shelly Duarte: It's evident that you don't know much about hip hop. These guys have been around since the 80's in Cali from a group called South Central Cartel. They had the name Havoc and Prodeje way before Mobb Deep. In fact, they're older than Mobb Deep and been in the rap game longer. I'm not saying they're better...to each his own. But don't post comments without knowing the true facts!"
Early S.C.C. material, but good

"Havoc & Prodeje of South Central Cartel (SCC) not east coast rap group by the same names, Mobb Deep, deliver a strong performance and one of their earliest ones as well. With Prodeje behind the boards on 11 of the 14 tracks, the production is good. Their lyrics aren't the most sophisticated but they get the point across rather well, they're gangstaz and that's it. Not their best album but not their worst either, it's a solid 4 star performance, with no classic song, 1 that I skip, 3 that are ok, and the other 10 are good songs (after track 11 the album slips a little). As With all their albums, guests are limited (as always to LV and a few with the rest of the SCC) and it's a good album to have for the SCC fans.

"Outstanding. Sounds like 1996 sound. Was released in 1993."
