Synopsis

Amazon.com
Master P's southern bounce is the hip-hop sound of 1998, and his soundtrack to the negligible I Got the Hook-Up! is his No Limit label displaying its plumage: the boss himself, longtime associates Silkk the Shocker, Mystikal and Mia X, new acquisitions Ice Cube (with "Ghetto Vet," one of his bleakest, bitterest tracks to date) and Snoop Doggy Dogg, a couple of members of the mighty Wu-Tang Clan for extra cred, and a whole lot of unknowns. Doesn't matter. P is the star here, and the disc's speaker-blowing grooves and easy-rolling rhymes are all his, whether he's directly involved in creating them or not: he's created a gaudy hip-hop aesthetic, and he's showing off how the talent's come to him. --Douglas Wolk

No Limit's Best

"This cd is No Limit's best because it showcases almost all of the crew's best rappers, including some new acquisitions of that time; Snoop Dogg, Soulja Slim, Steady Mobb'n, and Ghetto Commission to name a few.This cd has the perfect combination of rap styles and beats to give a new listener to southern rap the true feel of New Orleans hip hop.Sadly, this was No Limit's only cd that was truthfully enjoyable on every track. Every artist shined on this, but their solo albums that were soon to follow I Got the Hook Up just couldn't hold up to how tight they were on this soundtrack.My Thoughts:04 (Soulja Slim): This was the closest No Limit got to producing an amazing Mannie Fresh(Cash Money) rip off beat. Great song by Slim though.11 (C Murder): This is the song that defines C Murder... Hard lyrics, and the constant shoutouts to other No Limit riders. Too bad all his solo outings never had any songs that sounded like this agian.13 (Mechalie Jamison): I've never even heard of this guy before and he blew me away... Great R&B song.16 (Kane and Able, Full Blooded): Kane and Able have never let me down, even when they were on No Limit. Full Blooded is the downfall of this song because he has no flow whatsoever. Is that Soulja Slim I hear in the background???17 (Steady Mobb'n) Best song on the cd. Coolest beat and keyboards I've ever heard on a Beats By the Pound record.The rest of the songs are all really great too. This was the best No Limit cd I had ever spent money on... Too bad I can't get my money back from all the other horrible NL cds i bought.If you want a good southern rap compilation, pick this up..."

"The whole album is tight from beginning to end. With stars like Ice Cube, Snoop, Jay-Z, Memphis Bleek, Sauce Money, and the whole original No Limit family; you know you can't go wrong. It's already 4 years old so hurry up and get it!!"
