"In late 1994, Sacramento, Cali's Marvaless answers her earlier 1994 album Ghetto Blues with a 5 track EP. She can hold her own on the mic as well as C-Bo, her homie from Sac Town. She can spit and for a rediculous reason or another, she went under the radar. She can hold her own very well with Lil Kim and Foxy Brown any day. She represents that Cali lifestyle well here and has good production by DJ Daryl, Mike Mosely and Sam Bostic which draws on a hard knock G-Funk sound similar to C-Bo's albums, so fans of his will find a familiarity with this EP. The title track has a funk sample that has been sampled millions of times, and the beat is a little derivative, but the joint is cool. The rest of the beats on the EP are much better. She lays down how she came up in the game. She flows hella tight here. "That's How We Creep" features her and Pizzo tradin' gangsta spits over a menacing beat. "Ride With Me" is a cool, laidback keyboard melody ridden G-Funker perfect to roll to on a sunny day. The beat is chill, but her flow is fierce here. "Hard Core" is another menacing whiny synth ridden joint with C-Bo flexin their skills and their gangsta buckin' down wack MC's. C-Bo would also have this song on his 1995 Tales From The Crypt with a slightly different beat. "Jealous B--ches" is a cool faster paced joint with a cool whiny synth puttin' green eyed ladies in they place. This is a cool EP and any gangsta rap and G-Funk fan will find a lot to like about this lil' gem. Time to give dap to a trill MC."

"This is one of the most under rated female rappers of our decade. She has skills that still have been unmatched. This Sacramento, CA. native is one of my all time favorite female rappers. If you ever get a chance to listen you won't be disappointed!"
