Where is B Angie B?

"***********BUYER BEWARE************************. If you buy this CD for the song Juicy gotcha crazy Ft. B angie B you will be disappointed. Because she is not on the version that is on this album. And futher more the version on the album has some kind of rock sound with guys singing juicy in the background and the ladies rapping don't even sound like 357. This song and Yeah, Yeah, Yeah were the only reason I bought the CD. is cool it still sounds the same. But this messed up juicy version made me angry. I wish I had knew this before I bought it."

"This album doesn't seem to get the respect it deserved. It didn't get the respect it deserved when it was released back in 89, and it's pretty much forgotten now. This is a shame.

Why do the other reviews slack this album for being produced by MC HAMMER? Yes, everyone knows that MC HAMMER brought these girls up, and did most of the work for their album, including promotion and production. However, slow down for a second before you critisize them for this, and ponder this questions: Do you realize that now, in the year 2006, EVERY SINGLE HIP HOP "ARTIST" IS PRODUCED BY SOMEBODY ELSE? Let's face it - nobody writes their own lyrics. I hate to break it to you. Yes, MC HAMMER wrote lyrics on this album. What is your point?! Yeah, now I see you nervously glancing at your CD collection...

Each song on this album is well done. "357 Straight at You" is a gem. These ballsy girls called out every single female rap group that existed alongside them. Added to the hit list was SHANTE, SALT-N-PEPPA, and most obviously, JJ FAD. What rap group these days can actually start beef like that, much less a female group? These days, all you will get is a bunch of lousy r'n b, or some neo-hoochied-out Top 40 garbage.

There are club bangers on this album (Yeah Yeah Yeah, Juicy). The last song is a moody, dark song, "I Betcha Wanna Take It", which is definitely one of the standouts.

Get this album if you can, especially if you are interested in having a well-developed sense of what hip-hop was, and is."
My guilty pleasure!!!!!

"in answer to Norfeest....Oaktown's 3.5.7 has undergone more musical chairs in their brief 4 year career then Destiny's Child...starting out as a trio in 88 as MC Hammer's back up dancers the 3 original memebers Terrible T.,Sweet LD,and Lil'P.(seen in Hammer's "Pump it up" video),went on to record their debut "Wild & loose" to be released in 89...before the shooting and release of their 1st single "Yeah,yeah,Yeah" Lil'P left the group to get married...Hammer recruits 2 new girls Sweet P.(a former Raider Cheerleader) and VC(Bobby Brown's "My perogitive" video) joining Terrible T & Sweet LD turning 357 into a quartet,and the reason you see 4 women in the video...however the 2 new girls lipsynched Lil'P's voice in the "Yeah..." the story goes VC broke her leg and never returned and Sweet P. left to becaome a temporary member of JJ Fad replacing Sassy C. briefly and changing her name to Classy they are a duo once again...and you see that in their 2nd video "357 straight at u"...well going into 90's Hammer decided release a 3rd single "Juicy gotcha crazy" remixing & rerecording the song and adding the sultry vocals of B.Angie B....Angie was actually never a part of 357 just a guest vocalist...their 4th single "We Like it" was also rerecorded and remixed.

Now onto my review...these ladies remind me of a time when hip hop wasn't so mean and hateful...sure they dissed JJ Fad,S&P,and Shante...but it wasn't anything in the vein of what going on these days...they were not the best MC's, they still were nonetheless entertaining...all the spandex and cheerleader dance moves were cute."
