"The tightest on tha west!!! KAM is one of just a few real rappers, that ain't rapping for money but for expressing themselves. You feel he really got to say something. It's different to this simple gangsta rap that steady repeats itself. KAM 's lyrics make you think about the world we all live in. Combined with his partly rough and partly smooth music, his significant rhymes make the whole thing. That's what it's all about. The truth is what he represents...."

"Damn, The Lench Mob was on a roll back in 1992-93. Kam who was once part of Ice Cube's Lench Mob went on to drop his solo debut back in early '93. I personally find Kam's "Neva Again to closely resemble the Ice Cube's "Amerikkka's Most Wanted" and "Death Certificate" in so many ways. He has a lot to say about many events going on in his neighborhood. When he rhymes, he rhymes with versitality and charisma, something that I'm feeling. "Stereotype" and "Hang Um High" are some dope tracks about the lifestyle that goes on that he has witnessed. I also like the track "You Don't Hear Me Dough" as it has a dope beat as Kam rhymes about the way people are living.
Guests are on one song. Ice Cube appears on "Watts Riot", and creates the chemestry between the two emcees. Koze, Stone, Stan The Guitar Man, Toothie, Chris Charity handled the producion this album. This album does have funky production like on "Neva Again" and the previously mentioned song "You Don't Hear Me Dough".
This album is so underrated. It's has an amazing vibe from start to finish, well dressed with some funky lyrics and beats. I'm suprised that not too many people heard of Kam, because he is an phenomonal lyricist. Even The Source gave this 3 mics out of 5 back in '93 (go figure). Sadly this album is out of print. If anything, you shouldn't pay no more than 30 bucks for this. Or you can download it legally for a cheap price, like I did. Either way If you're a fan of early Ice Cube, Public Enemy, Lench Mob, etc, don't hesitate to purchase this album. Kam would follow this up with Made in America in '95 and which is dope as well. Peace.

"Every now and then I go through some older albums that I may have missed back in the day and see if I can find them, when I came across this gem from Kam. I have his sub-par "KAMnesia" as well as his very good "Made in America" albums, but this is my favorite of his 3. It's is one of the great G-Funk sounding albums from the early/mid 90's that has some of that early Ice Cube political theme to most of the songs, not surprising since Ice Cube executive produced the album. Though it's short at only 10 songs, 1 is almost a classic, the other 9 are good, most being real good songs. Guests are minimal and only 1 guest is on 1 song. Production is very nice as well, though alot of samples are used (like Ice Cube's "The Predator"). Chris Charity & Derek Lynch, Rashad, Torcha Chamber Prod., Mr. Woody each do 2 songs, and DJ Pooh & T Bone each do 1. A must have album for fans of old school G-funk west coast albums.
