This is the first Master P solo record, from back when his home base was Richmond, California--just a hop, skip, and jump from Oakland's trunk funk. As such, it plays like a selection from the lost Too $hort tapes. Slow, heavy bass, mystic whistles, and gratuitous grunts pepper the album as P retells standard tales of pimp and gangster life. Despite the declaration on "Hands of a Dead Man" that "most blacks, they don't know about politics," there's little teaching here. On the very next track, "211," the chorus repeats with no emotion whatsoever, "We needed cash, we robbed the liquor store." Here, keeping it real rarely means keeping it right. --Jon Caramanica

"Yeah, the 94 version has the red writing on the cover and has some trackz dat were taken out in tha 97 version (97 version is tha picture your seeing right now). I guess P replaced it with two new songz with the other onez and shorten it (like da song "anything goes" which was a real tight song but shorten it) because they got former Tru member King George on it and edit hiz azz out in da songz. I like the 94 version way betta. I dunno why P messed up this classic album up!!! Seriously!!! Now the 94 version is impossible to find, well if you find it, itll prolly end up to $500. Fo real imma bout to sock P inna face when i see him fo doin dat $h!t to a good album >:-(. and tha new P's albumz sux azz. Stupid azz P!!! The two new songs he put in the 97 version is "Always Look A Man In His Eyes"....that song is OK but silkk the shocker messed up dat song badly and he soundz so horrible in hiz rappin. and "robbery" which has c-murder rappin, that one is ok. But the "reverend do wrong" and "steady being a gangsta" is way betta which were taken out in the 97 version. This is the best P album out of all of them but f**kin P messed thiz remake up...even tho King George appeared in P's other album like "99 ways to die", "true" (TRU), and "get away clean"...so there is no use fo P doin dat. And hiz azz needz to put the original version back in da market cuz hiz newer onez sux!!! And lost alotta of hiz fanz.
Good luck in findin tha 94 version"
