Classic, overlooked, underappreciated and pure genius!

"YOU WANT THIS ALBUM! If you want ol' skool ganksta rap that's HARD, with intelligent lyrics about the truths and consequences of ganksta life, thrown in with ambiguous references to Satan worship and an underlying darkness that permeates pure evil, YOU WANT THIS! Seag was the HARDEST rapper to come out of the West coast! The ONLY west coast artist to be signed to Rap A Lot Rex! This man was REAL and probably would have seen big things happen in his career had he not been blown away in '95, a mere 2 years after this one's release. Allegedly he was involved in a huge dope ring and various other ganksta activity, which goes to show that Seag KNEW what he was rapping about. He gives explicit details about things in his raps that only someone who really experienced such things would be able to communicate. He wasn't very big on flash, metaphor or boasting in his raps. He just told it like it was and when he did do those things he did it in a way that was sincere, and only to give you an idea of the mentality that you must have to survive in the ghetto streets. This powerful album contains an aura of real darkness and evil that can be felt even though it can't really be heard, and let me tell you, NOT a lot of artist at all are able to do such things. Seag did. And this debut stands as an authentic document to the life of a REAL ganksta. This man totally understood the world he lived in on a physical and existential level, an awareness that onle few are born with. His work NEEDS to be re-released and given its due!!!"
