Vintage 90's Material {4 Stars}
Norfeest | Washington DC USA | 06/26/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I was listening to Busta Rhymes' first LP (The Coming) yesterday and I came to track number nine. "Def Squad Meets Flipmode Squad" is probably one of the best songs on that album, but when I got to Mally G's verse, it struck me that I hadn't listened to his album in almost 5 years (I have over 8,000 hip hop albums, it's all but impossible to give them equal rotation). So I went over to the shelves and dusted this joint off. The first thing that came to mind was "Why didn't Jamal pan out in this rap game?" There are plenty of reasons one could use. Puffy was on the come up and killing what most of us would consider "real hip hop". There was also the west coast dominance of the early to mid 90's. Who knows, there could be plenty of reasons. I can't help but feel like whatever the reason, it couldn't have been a good one. This album has all kinds of bangers. No frills, no getting jiggy -- just Mally and the Def Squad gettin' busy over ill tracks. Tracks like "Genetic For Terror", "Live Illegal", "Unf**kwittable, and "Insane Creation" are vintage 90's/Def Squad material. I think we all recognize "Fades 'Em All" as the standout, and with good reason (the Pete Rock Remix is phat too). There are tight joints laced all throughout the album. Also, with producers like Erick Sermon, Rockwilder, Easy Mo Bee and a few others lending their talents, you know the sound is dope if you know their credentials.

As far as flaws, there are maybe one or two songs that you have to be in the mood for (well, I know I do). "Da Come Up" isn't necessarily bad, but I tend to skip it. Also, "Don't Trust No" is a song that I think this album could've done without. Basically, Jamal should've stayed away from the G-Funk sound (in my opinion). Outside of those things, I think this album is great.

Last Chance, No Breaks is vintage mid 90's hip hop. This is the stuff I was bumpin' my senior year of high school. If props translated into career longevity, Jamal would have a resume' that could rival LL Cool J. Too bad he never caught on the way he should have. Amazon has this used for $5.95. If that ain't a steal, I don't know what is. If you see this on the shelf, don't hesitate to cop it. Highly recommended.

Standout Tracks: Unf**kwittable feat. George Clinton & Passion, Genetic For Terror feat. Erick Sermon, Redman, Keith Murray, & L.O.D., Fades 'Em All (My Favorite), Live Illegal, Insane Creation feat. Redman, Keep It Real, and The Game"
Very underrated album from the def squad camp

"this album is from jamal aka mally g,one half of the group illegal,this album is so hot the beats are hot and his wordplay is sicker than a fever,i bought this album on ebay for $1 and change,he's very lyrical and he's very underrated,my only concern is that he had some songs with like west coast scarface (the rapper) type beats and it didn't fit the album,he's more of an east coast rapper equipped with rugged beats,he's one of the illest rappers that ive heard from philly,and its sad that this album is out of print and didn't get the buzz it deserves,the production is dark too,standout tracks are situation (produced by erick sermon and rockwilder),insane creation (production by easy mo bee,one of the best beats he made,featuring redman),fades em all(produced by redman and rockwilder,one of the illest songs of the 90's),the game (produced by redman,yes the rapper he makes hot beats he shouldve kept makin beats and still rap and its also my favorite track,and the beat is dark as hell),keep it real (produced by erick sermon,nice paino sample)and finally genetic for terror (produced by redman and rocwilder,featuring Erick Sermon , Keith Murray , L.O.D. , Redman,and they all did their thing.recommended for fans of def squad,90's hip hop,east coast hip hop.don't sleep."

"Yeah def squad were in full effect in these years. Erick came again with some tight production. Jamal has some good rhymes but the appearances made this even better I think. The whole album is good and worth buying though if you like def squad or just good east coast flavour hip hop. Anyway, hope I helped. Peace!"
