A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR HIP-HOP COLLECTION!!!
03/04/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"MC SHAN!!! AN INSPARATION TO ALL ORIGINAL HIP HOP LOVERS. A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR COLLECTION. "DOWN BY LAW"- NOT JUST A SONG, BUT THE REAL STUFF THAT WAS GOING ON IN HIP HOP IN THE 80'!!! THE CLASSIC BEATS JUST PERFECT TO PLAY ON YOUR CAR SOUNDS. "PROJECT HO"- A BEAT THAT BRINGS MEMORIE'S IN THOSE DAYS AND THE TRUTH BEHIND THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO LIVED IN THE PROJECTS. "LIVING IN THE WORLD OF HIP-HOP"- A BRIEF STORY OF HOW HIP-HOP(THE DARN BEST CREATED MUSIC EVER MADE)BEGAN. WHO WAS THE FIRST DJ? ECT... LAST BUT NOT LIST "THE BRIDGE"- A VERY STRONG SONG OF HOW HIP HOP LOVERS USE TO STRUGLE BACK IN THE DAYS. THE POWER OF THE 'BASS' AND THE BATTLE OF NEW YORK RAP SUPREMACY. JUST TO SHOW THAT YOU DIDN'T HAD TO SOUND TOO EXPLICIT TO BECOME A STAR. AND SHAN SHOW'S IT IN THOSE VERY CLASSIC SONG'S!!! P.S--- JUST WICH THE OLD RAPPER'S WOULD COME BACK AND DO AT LEAST ONE SONG WITH THE OLD 808' BASS MACHINES, BEATS,AND THE CLASSIC RAP LYRICS. BECAUSE TO AN ORIGINAL "HIP-HOP" LOVER LIKE MYSELF, " YOU REALLY DONT KNOW WHERE HIP-HOP'S AT UNTIL YOU KNOW WHERE IT REALLY CAME FROM!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Classic Juice Crew Hip-Hop

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Though many heads would hate to admit it Down By law is a definite Hip-Hop classic. Shans straight foward delivery backed up by Marley Marls legendary producing, creates that classic Juice Crew sound. Surprisingly versatile, Shan's Down By Law covers almost every aspect of the Hip Hop blue print; battle raps like "Down By Law" covers the classic N.Y style, "Left Me lonely" is a rap ballad that is heartfelt and was made at a time when this kind of rap was looked down upon. "Project Ho" a classic hip-hop song depicting shifty girl form the projects, this song also dabbles in the area sexually transmitted diseases. In the song "Another One To Get Jealous Of" Shan expands himself even further transforming his style into Dancehall-Reggae. Last but not least is the classic Queens anthem which brought about arguably the most popular Hip-Hop fued of all time "The Bridge" put Queens on the map while stepping on Boogie Down Productions toes (and the whole borough of the Bronx for that matter) but never made an apology to either and stood head up high to the Bronx based giants. Down By Law, a Hip-Hop classic in every meaning of the word."

"you can notice a pair of puma's and red kangol on the cover photo that coming to my mind these are trademark were gettin know better with MC Shan. all the songs were created with minimalist and relentless drum machine textures with great range of rhyming. especially 'left me lonely' is a pop-flavoured slow jam sounds very delightful to me. i remember that it was originally released back in feb '87 during the def jam & beastie boys & raising hell & tr 808 era. oh man I'm screamin like those were the days, you know what I'm sayin'."
