A West Coast CD Collection Must Have
T. L. Mariner | Los Angeles, Ca United States | 12/13/2004

"This is a CD I remember from high school back in '92. Back when DJ Quik was killing the game. I had to have it just because Quik, 2nd II None, AMG & Hi-C used to shout out the group's name on all of their songs. Bought this without hearing a single track from it and have loved it ever since.
The group consist of Playa Hamm & Tweed Cadillac. Playa Hamm is the player rapper showing you how playas play. Tweed is the pimp of the group. He's not a rapper but he puts it down with a smooth delivery and easy speak to let the suckas and ladies know how the pimp game goes.
Paid the Cost features appearances from DJ Quik, AMG, Eazy-E & others. Stand out tracks are Trust No, Blak Iz A Poet, Explanation Of A Playa & P.L.F. The CD does have some songs that sag and lack but overall it's a great listen.
I highly recommend this CD. 10 plus years later I still keep it in rotation. Mine was stolen recently which is what brings me here to Amazon to buy another. My 4th replacement! That's bcuz it's a must have."
Rapping Didn't Match Production

"This could have been a better album had the main rapper's skills went with the quality production Quik came with. Too often Playa Hamm wasn't rapping on beat. Plus I felt that lyrically he and Tweed Caddilac got too focused on using the bitch,hoe and nigga lyrics that too many gangsta/playa rappers do. This made the lyrics feel too repetative in my opinion. I have heard Playa Hamm rap since this album on Quik's Safe & Sound and I think he's a better rapper now than he was back then with this album.
So musically I was feeling it,but lyrically I felt it was too repetative for the reasons I mentioned."
