Rappers always claim they're taking it to the next level, but for a change, the Atlanta group P.A. (Parental Advisory) has actually delivered a record that forever raises the stakes for Southern hip-hop. Six years after their failed debut album, the trio reemerge with Straight No Chase, an impressive exhibition of sample-free hip-hop brewed into full-bodied funk. Richly textured tracks such as "Like We Do" and "China White" incorporate regional flavors--from Miami bass to Louisiana soldier--but transcend them all with live instruments, dynamic rhyming, and multilayered singing. Despite overtures to more pop-oriented styles, songs like "Dope Stories" (featuring Gip from Goodie Mob) prove P.A. can throw down with the best of their homeboys. Not since Dr. Dre unleashed his west coast G thang has streetwise hip-hop sounded so indulgently hook-heavy. All of which simply means that P.A.'s arrival is long overdue. --Roni Sarig
THE BEST UNKNOWN RAP GROUP

"This group does NO sampling, their rap style is the best out of the south and their albums are about more than how much money they have and how much weed they smoke. They are a breath of fresh air to the rap world. Cop this album, my life your entertainment and the new SPOOKS album. This is one of the most original albums out right now."
The best Rappers/Rap group you may or may not have heard of

"P.A. is truly one of the best rap acts not getting their fair shake on the music scene. Big Mo and Mello are two highly gifted lyricists and song- writers to hit the rap scene.Although their first project was unsuccessful it didn't deter them from their dream. If you listen to some of the lyrics on that first CD(Ghetto Headhunter track) you just know they will make it big someday. Get this one, it's hot!"
