An Interesting Beginning

""Being Myself" was the very first album Juvenile ever did. What's surprising to me is that it very little resembles the Juvenile we all know today, who has put out such hits as: "Ha" and "Back that azz up." This difference may be large in part to the fact that this was released in 1994, a few years before he hooked up with Manny Fresh and Cash Money Records. Nevertheless, this is an all-around good album. The beats are primative compared to today's standards, but they don't feel to keep you moving. Juvenile flowed really well on this album and his true lyrical talents proved themselves on such tracks as: "U Can't C Me", "Shake Dat Azz", and "Conversation With Tha Man Above". Some of the lyrics he said were even heartfelt at times. This album is a must-have, especially if you're a Juvenile fan. It also is worth checking out as simply a fan of rap. For those of you out there who don't care much for Cash Money, check this out anyway. You'll find whatever conceptions you have about Juvenile put to dust. He is undoubtedly one of (if not, THE) best rappers for Cash Money and he's been around in the game a long time. The style here actually resembles Old School hip-hop, like possibly something out of West Coast."
South or West?

"I gotta say, this album is tight, but is it west coast music or is it that dirty south N.O. flavor we all know?"
