"When I first heard this in 94', it blew my mind. The only reason it got 4 stars is because of his "crying voice" on #5. Totally different: from the inside tape cover, to the pimpish Parliament Funkadelic theme that he portray's on it; it's great! With a lot of samples from George Clinton and the production of Ruthless Records with an appearance by Above The Law(best of all time!) on #9 Aftermath, this album got the FUNKIEST GANGSTA BEATS OF ALL TIME! On a few songs, he also brings out emotions in you of death and dispair. (It's a good thing!) And the song that gets across the hardest point as well as the funniest is #14 where Kokane and COOOOOOLD 187um straight clown on Dre and Snoop!
A hard to find, but MUST HAVE for anybody who listens to any kind of funk or gangsta rap."

"My reasons to tag this album the Best Kokane album is done with little hesitation. Perhaps MC Eiht's We Come Strapped comes a close to Funk Upon A Rhyme . In this album we see the artist weave a tapestry of intricate tight sound and odd yet melodic vocals. The lyrics are solid, and outside the fact that kokane is consumed by the anger towards Dre, still enjoy this album. This album is G-funk, but with a George Clintonesque P-funk twist. Over all I still listen to this album frequently, and is a stunning coup de'teatre that is second to none in terms of west coast rap. The first 5 or 6 songs serve as an apparatus to get you to "My Day is Coming" and after that every song is absolutely excellent or perfect. The second half of this album interweaves the eloquence of philosophy (lyrics and socio-economic circumstance) and the precision of mathematics (intricate sound and beats). This is an album that bespeaks greatness in what I call the renaissance of rap. On the Death Row diss track "Don't Bite the Phunk", locc'd out Pimp'sta Kokane & the 187-Master Cold 187um have to take on punks Dr. Dre, Snoop Doggy Dogg & Kurupt, which Mr.Kane & Big Hutch go Insane in the Brain! Death Row acts that it was the only gangsta rap label, but hey, yo Dre! Stick to producing because, Mr.Kane likes his Chronic mixed with some PCP! Snoop Doggy Doggy Dogg has been getting it up his a$$ by his CEO Suge Knight, which Big Dogg Blue has no clue what Mr.Kane & Big Hutch gonna do! Kurupt the Dogg Pound Crip, can't take the likes of G's from Compton, Long Beach, South Central, Watts, Carson and even Pomona, CA! So wut would that wannabe locc do if Mr.Kane is gonna do, so call Big Hutch "Kurupt"! Funk Upon A Rhyme is a G-funk classic which features artists Tha Alkaholics, Dirty Red, KMG & Cold 187um, the production is done by DJ Yella"
