(3 out of 5 stars)
"After releasing his first album, "Penicillin on Wax" in 1991, Tim Dog came back on the scene in 1993 with his follow-up "Do or Die."
1. I Don't Give a F*** - Decent beat, Tim raps some gangsta ish, hook is weak - 3.5/5
2. Grab Your Gat - Horrible beat, Tim doesn't really impress me on this, Hook is weaker than the first track - 2/5
3. I Get Wrecked (Featuring KRS-One) - Wow finally a feelable beat, KRSs and Tims flows are real fast and hardcore, hook is alright - 4/5
4. Timberlands - Bangin beat, Tim's flow is real good on here, the hook fits well with the mood of the song - 4.5/5
5. If I Was a Cop - Good beat, Tim raps about what he would do if he was a cop...pretty interesting, hook is good - 4/5
6. Hardcore - tolerable beat, Tim comes raw and grimey, hook is alright - 3/5
7. Game - Nice beat, Tim raps slow and tells a story...then some other dude spits but doesn't impress me, no hook and most of the time the song has a crowd of people making comments in the background...horrible - 1/5
8. Skip to My Loot (Featuring Smooth B) - Good beat, decent collaboration by tim and smooth b, decent hook - 3/5
9. Silly B**** - Nice beat, Tim's flow and lyrics are good, hook is WEAK!! - 2.5/5
10. Maddog - Nice beat, Tim raps fast and raw, real annoying hook - 3.5/5
11. Make Room - Good beat, Tims flow and lyrics are real hardcore, hook is too simple - 3.5/5
12. Breakin North - Tim just gives shout outs to people - No Rating
This album is a disapointment, no wonder Tim never released anymore cd's after this. This album totally killed his career. He does have a real hardcore style and raw lyrics, but his beats and hooks are horrible for the most part."
"Tim Dog loses his momentum"

"The "Penecillen On Wax" must've worn out by the time Tim put this CD together. Being that he could no longer capatilize on the gimmick of "F**K COMPTON", Tim was forced to add more original material, which of course, by the time that it was released, became immaterial. Maybe he should've kept the relentless attack on "happy rappers". There are one topic MC's out there that know that that's what they're good at (take Freddie Foxx for example) and stick to that formula. Tim Dog is an attack MC, therefore he should've stuck to the original formula. The only good songs on this CD are the ones with KRS and Smooth B (of Nice & Smooth). Other than that, this CD falls short."
This was ok, but still a let down

"True, after the his first, I was expecting a lot more on this. And yeah, I was dissapointed. But still, there was some good tracks on this too. I don't think it was anywhere as hard as the first either. It just didn't have the feel that you get from the first one. But, he still was on the attack. There was also a track that wasn't on this CD called, 'Bit@h with a perm' which was a funny diss with a beat similar to 'gin & juice' and yes, ofcourse, it was directed at snoop too. Overall, I would still recommend getting this, but only if you have the first one and liked it, then don't expect much on this but a few good tracks. You would have though he had learned his s#it was playing out, but in 2003 he came back with another album called 'immortal' and he was trying to fit in with the new s#it a bit more but trying to mix his old style with it, it's just wack, if anyone wants it, just let me know, i'll sort it out for you. But I recommend the 'Ultra' album from 1996 where he is with kool keith(they are friends, but I always thought it was a strange mix of styles) for the whole album and it's got some real tight tracks. Peace!"
