Crazy Album By The Angry Texans
G-Funk 4ever | Listenin' to the Delfonics | 06/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"1994 was a dope year in rap for sure. P.K.O., a lesser known rap group from San Antonio Texas, I believe(even though some say Houston), drops a heated album. These guys put it down for gangsta rap, and this album's definitely hard core. "Nino (Rox II Riches 2)" is horrorcore. The beat is menacing with screams in the background. "San Antonio Ain't S--- Like Compton" is especially angry toned. These guys definitely have heard the 1992 DJ Quik joint, "Jus Lyke Compton" and hated what he said about San Antonio, and they definitely shot back at him hard (I am a heavy DJ Quik fan, though, but I am not offended because beef makes for great rap). The beat is dope G-Funk. In fact, just about the whole album has an awesome G-Funk sound, which in 1994, was prevalent on the west coast, and down south, where these guys are from. One classic joint here is "Gonna Be Alright" which takes some serious looks at social issues. The beat is laidback, soulful, and beautiful, a great G-Funk staple. "Girlz Best Friend" is the pimp joint, not necessary here, but the beat is cool. A nice lowrider joint is "Redrum;" the beat is melodic and twangy funk with some gangster knowledge. "Ni--az In The Hood" reminds me of the Dre and Snoop duet from 1992, "Deep Cover" because it has that hard mobb sound Deep Cover had. "Lick Shot" is another dope track. The beat has a nice P-Funk inflection and a neat woozy synth line. The opener on the album "Shoot 'Em Up" has a neat southern fried crunkdafied beat. If you want hard gangsta lyrics and hella phat beats, this hardly known joint is for you. Real locs recognize real. This album unfortunately, is sadly slept on; I am the first one to review it, and it is 2007, 13 years after it was released."
