Best Rapper I've Known

"Yes. Seagram was the best rapper I have ever known. You see, I have loved Seagram for many years, even after his death. I am the mother of his 2 sons and we miss him daily. Little Seagram is 13 now and seems to be taking a interest in music. Maybe he'll be a rapper too. Sean is 12 now and is as mentally sharp as his dad was. I wanted to personally thank each and everyone of you who has taken the time to write even the least bit about Seagram. Your reviews brought tears to my eyes. I did not know that his music was so widely appreciated. We have mourned his death since the day he was killed, but reading your reviews has brought sunshine to our hearts.
Like 'Reality Check' taken to the next level.

"Here we have a compilation of the best of Seagz unreleased material recorded prior to his assassination. Before that he had released 2 other LP's, The Dark Roads in 92 and Reality Check in 94. TDR stands alone as a masterpiece of hard but intelligent gangsta realism. Personally I think most of RC's lyrics are in the right place but the production went from the raw kult thuggish vibe of TDR to that laid-back west coast style diminishing much of the impact it could have had. The result of Souls On Ice resembles RC kicked up a few notches, a little more hardcore, a much more solid album. 'Gotta Stay Down' is one of my personal faves. As usual Seag is amazing!"
RIP SEAGRAM THE KING ( i feel seagsta from the heart)

"WHAT CAN I SAY??? i 1st heard seag back in 97 it was strange i was reading the source mag (neva heard of seagram then) the article went on to say souls on ice was to be his 3rd and final album i dunno why but when i read that it made the hairs on my back stand up. i just had to explore deeper. i purchased souls on ice and man o man sleeping in my nikes was a sad track but at the same time disturbing (knowing deaths around the corner. havin listened to this album i just had to find the others i got reality check straight away but it took me 6 years to get the 1st album it cost me 50 uk pounds. beleave me when i tell u no one ive ever come across has heard of seagram but its the same ole bull 2pac this biggy that. pac and biggy combined aint never touched me i have near enough 1000 rap cds but dont own a single biggy or pac (i dont feel em).i was listening to seag when i was broke with no hope and his trax motivated me u all need to get to the core of his lyrics to understand me. remember the lyric the only way to come up is u gotta stay down. seagram is gonna remain the pride of my selection if there were 3 things to rescue from my burning house they would be all 3 seagram albums 1 love seagram like a brother (rip) c u on the other side of the road PEACE!!!!"
