CD Reviews

Smokin' Gunz..............Fiyah!
Steve Quinones-Knowland | Between New York and Georgia | 01/31/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Honestly, the beats on "Firing Squad" were better than "Warriorz" because most of the tracks are dark and fiery. DJ Premier produced the hotest tracks: "Firing Squad" jazzy but dark piano loop
"New Jack City" nice work with the xlyophone
"Stick to your gunz" need more Kool G Rap collabos
"Downtown Swinga ('96)" underground classicThe lyrics on this CD are hot. M.O.P. were definitely hungry when the tracks were created. This group has been slept on for years. Respect due."

"First time I heard M.O.P. was on there second album "Firing Squad" (1996). The duo of Lil'Fame & Billy Danzenie delivered a solid album full of hardcore tracks. DJ Premier and Big Jaz's production contributions to this album are memorable. Backed by a sick piano beat, M.O.P. rip up the grimey title track "Firing Squad", followed up by the deadly "New Jack City". Next Rap legend Kool G Rap drops in for a rugged collabration on "Stick To Ya Gunz" another sick track. "Anticipation" embodies part of KRS-One's "MC's Act Like They Know" and is another blazing track. M.O.P. represent on "Born to Kill" love the keyboards to this one. Big Jaz's beat to "World Famous" was reused last year on Scarface's hit single "My Block", its a sick beat and I like the M.O.P. version. On "Lifestyles of a Ghetto Child" and "Illside of Town" M.O.P. deliver dark hardcore tracks of Murder, loyalty and survival. The next cut "Nothin 2 Lose" is outstanding, M.O.P. get more personal talking about themselves, fallen friends and family, jail and the streets. "Dead & Gone" is another standout, sampling portions of Curtis Mayfields "Let's Do It Again" and featuring background vocals from Battle, Tanya Ray and La Shonda Middleton, M.O.P. pay tribute to fallen friends while addressing death and the afterlife. Album closes off well with "Born 2 Kill" (Jazz Mix). M.O.P. deliver genuine grimey streetlife music with "Firing Squad" an album I would recommend to anyone who enjoy hardcore Hip Hop."
Another solid album for their 2nd --- 4.5 stars

"Fizzy Womack & Billy Danze return after 2 years and deliver another solid album, my 2nd favorite of their 5 rap albums. Of the 14 songs on here, 2 are classics, 2 are ok and the other 10 are good or great songs. Once again, as with all their albums, you don't get no fake $hi+ just pure gangsta and hardcore. Production is good as with all their albums and done by most of the same people who do all their beats. DJ Premier did 6 songs, Laze-E-Laze did 4, Big Jaz did 3 and Ali Dee did 1. Guests are on the first 3 songs (and are hardcore themselves - Teflon & the great Kool G Rap) so you still get a lot of M.O.P. A must have for real hardcore rap fans not that radio and MTV crap.

#3 - 7.5 (f/ teflon)
#4 - 8.5 (f/ teflon)
#5 - 9 (f/ kool g rap)

#12 - 9.5
#14 - 5
#15 - 10 (Classic w/ good beat -- a little bit of a deeper song)
#17 - 8.5 (another deep song)
#18 - 9 (remix of #7)
