Spice 1 ~ at his best.

"Now, if you are reading this now, and contmeplating buying this, I am sure that you know what you are looking for since this album dropped nearly 7 years ago. This is no doubt in my mind the second greatest album ever produced, second only to All Eyez on Me from 2Pac. Spice 1 has a very distinctive flow unmatched by any rapper today. Phat trax are Hard to Kill (method man). Strap on the Side, Jealous got me strapped (2Pac), the list goes on, worth every penny, I personally have purchased this disc 4 times, only to have it taken or lost, each time.!!!"

"Spice 1 is one of the new artists that I've gotten into over the past year. I first heard him on Too Short's "The Dangerous Crew" from the classic "Get In Where You Fit In" album, and on MC Eiht's "Nothin' But The Gangsta" from his "We Come Strapped" album. Both albums are dope and I suggest you pick them up. As for Spice 1's "AmeriKKKa's Nightmare", I feel that it is a slept on Bay Area classic. I really didn't know about Spice's disceography that well, but I bought this album because I was on amazon and saw that a lot of reviewers said this was his best album. Also I saw this (as well as all of his albums) being sold for around 9 bucks about a couple of months ago, and didn't want to pass up the offer.
Most of these tracks, Spiggity Spice rhymes about the street life and about guns as well as shooting up people. "Face Of A Desprite Man" surrounds those types of subject matters while Spice rhymes over a sick Ant Banks beat. "Strap On The Side" is another dope song over a Blackjack beat as he lays down the remerable line "Can't **** with the East Bay G". Another great song is "Jealous Got Me Strapped" where Spice as well as 2Pac drop classic verses. "Three Strikes" is a good track that I was feeling. And to close out the album, Spice lays down a funny diss to Pooh Man on the song "You Done F'ed Up" (the end of the song is hilarious).
Guest appearances are excellent as well. Aside from the 2Pac appearane, Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man drops an excellent verse on "Hard To Kill". The opening track "D-Boyz Got Love For Me" features E-40. And on dope song, "Give A G A Gat", Spice passes the mic to his crew The 187 Fac.
This album isn't flawless, but I don't believe that they are worth pointing out. Spice 1 dropped a Bay Area classic back in 1994 with this album. I agree with a lot of reviewers when they say he doesn't get any airplay outside of the Bay Area. Jive Records really should have pushed and had more promotion for him because I doubt people in the south heard of him either. I'm not sure how consistant he is with his album since I only have two of them, (this and "The Black Bossalini"...also a dope album). Fans of early 2Pac will enjoy this album a lot, but I recommend that any rap fan give this a listen. Peace!
In response to one reviewer, Redman does not appear on this album.
In response to yet another reviewer, this album did not receive 5 mics from The Source Magazine.

"For his third album he came out hard as as muthafu*ka and created a classic album. The beats are great as well. Production is handled by BLACKjack (8 songs), Ant Banks (4 songs), and DJ Slip, Spice 1, and Battlecat each do 1 song. It has 6 songs I'd consider classics, 2 near classics, 3 good songs, 3 ok songs, and 1 that I skip. As with most of his early albums on Jive, the guest list is small (guests are on 4 of the 15 songs) and he has a classic dis track aimed at Pooh-Man. One of his 2 best cd's in my opinion (probably his best) and a must have for any rap fan. Spice is one of the hardest rappers ever and it's a shame people over here on the east coast don't really know about him as he should have sold many of platinum cd's as he makes classic after classic and all his material is fresh. GET A COPY OF THIS, it's one of the best rap CD"s ever (and I have over 600 rap albums).
