"While hailing from Compton, CA like other dope rap artists such as Eazy-E, MC Eiht, DJ Quik, B.G. Knocc Out, Dresta, King-T, Hi-C, Daddy V, Mausberg, Tone Loc, etc. Tweedy Bird Loc's lyricz contain topiccs such as homophobia, raCism, hate towardz women, legalizin' Marijuana, Gang bangin', Police, etc. Tweedy Bird Loc was born in the Southside of East Compton in the same neighboorhood as Eazy-E and waz a K-Rhider Crip jus like Eazy-E, Tweedy Bird Loc has had fueds with Eazy-E beCuz Eazy wouldn't sign Tweedy to Ruthless Records, so Tweedy Bird Loc opened up Dangerous ReCords and has had Blood & Crip collaboz on hiz "Bangin' On Wax" albumz which are a lil' corney but yet pretty dope, in 1992 Tweedy dropped hiz joint "187 Ride By", then in 1994 he dropped this dope joint called "No Holds Barred", which on the song Dub Sacc which is a tight G-funk joint about legalizin' Marijuana, fasho Tweedy is the loc reppin' the CPT at itz fullest, Fucc Miamie (At Luther Campbell) is another sicc G-funk joint dissin' Luke of 2Live Crew & the city of Miamie, also is givin' up propz to Compton & Watts, Ya'll Can't Fucc With Us (At Eazy-E) featuring Red Rum is, sinCe when did that loc Tweedy think he can diss Eazy-E, hahahahahaha......sorry Tweedy Bird Loc, but your dissing waz lame, at least the joint has a dope beat, and Dangerous Is The S**t featuring The Dangerous Records Camp is a dope G-funk joint talkin' about Dangerous Recordz being a dope Record Company label.

Tweedy Bird Loc has some dope joints like on songs 1, 2, *3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, *12, 13, *15, 16, *17 & 18."

"Compton rapper Tweedy Bird Loc tried to establish himself as the West Coast's answer to Tim Dog on his 1992 debut 187 Ride By, and his second and final album, 1994's "No Holds Barred," contains more of the same. The LP plays like one long diss record, and targets include Eazy-E, MC Ren, Queen Latifah, KRS-One, 2 Live Crew, white women in general, and in a very Tim Dog-esque manner, the entire city of Miami.

To be frank, "No Holds Barred" is one of the worst rap albums I've heard. Tweedy is extremely sexist and racist, but it's not the content I have a problem with so much as it is the lack of quality. Tweedy is unlikable because he hates everything and everybody, and his sole concerns are talking trash and throwin' up his gang. His soulless, emotionless rhymes have no style or humor and sound like they were written by a six year old. His faceless guest rappers are no better. The songs are so generic that they sound like they were made as a joke to make fun of gangsta rap. His disses are trite, because he was not personally involved with any of his targets except Eazy-E, who refused to sign him to Ruthless Records in the early 90s (good move Eazy!).

To make matters worse, the production is of a ridiculously low quality. There are a handful of beats that are half-decent given the cheap equipment, such as "Y'all Can't F With Us" and "I Got My Strap," but even these sound quite dated and are ruined by the doo-doo coming from Tweedy's mouth. The hooks sound terrible and the songwriting and structures are awful.

I hate to sound like a hater, but I need to make it clear that anyone considering paying out-of-print prices for "No Holds Barred" should avoid it like the plague. You know your album stinks when the best track is a five-minute skit of "your mama" jokes. Tweedy Bird Loc was the mastermind behind the Crips & Bloods Bangin on Wax series, which sold over a million copies (!!!), but he should have stayed in the exec chair and out of the spotlight. On all fronts "No Holds Barred" is a steaming pile of failure."
