A 90's Classic.
WILLIE A YOUNG II | Houston, TX. | 02/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On this, my 32nd Birthday, I choose to look back on a golden era in hip hop. While there are other, major works by artists with a sterling track record and longer discographies, "Call Me D-Nice" is a longtime favorite of mine for a large variety of reasons, not the least of which is, it hearkens back to a time when rap was about simple pleasures, bragging on your skills, women, jewelry, your crew and even your production tools! (the still thumping "TR-808" with a wicked cameo from KRS-One). The title track with it's buzzing, "Peter Gunn" guitar licks and fat, chunky drums is a classic, the outstanding "Glory" is a terrific standout for D's fluid delivery, the funky wah-wah guitars on the choruses and it's narrative about the first Negro Regiment to actually see combat in The Civil War, from a historical standpoint it's skimpy, but since something of it's nature is so rare (especailly in today's pathetic rap scene) it's notable. There's even a guest vocal from Dawnn Lewis (Jaleesa from TV's "A Different World", the biggest show on NBC when this album came out) on the semi-ballad "It's Over Now". When all is said and done, "Call Me D-Nice" didn't alter musical history, but it's still a breezy, fun reminder of simpler, happier times, both in hip-hop, and in my life. A Classic"
This is D-Nice's breakthrough into Old School Hip Hop

"In "Call Me D-Nice" by D-Nice, one of the greatest old school rappers introduces himself. D-Nice is a smooth rapper who knows how to make his beats hit home with lyrics that just flow. "The TR 808" as he calls himself, is an awesome contribution to any rap lover's hip hop library."
"Just call'em D-Nice!!"

"D-Nice "The Human TR-808" was Beat-Boxing for BDP at age 16. When the original version of the "TR-808 is coming" dropped in '87 I knew that a new, young MC from The Bronx had emerged to continue the BDP "Bronx" traditons of MCing. If you've ever heard the unreleased "D-NICE ROCKS THE HOUSE", D-Nice gives you a glimpse on what was in store. By '89-'90 when the he told the Hip-Hop world "My Name Is D-Nice" it was over! A new Rapper was added to the list of the "Boogie Down Bronx's" list of champion MC's. A superb and natural lyricist, D-Nice KILLS every track with his ultra-smooth, B-Boy gangsta' pimp style. This is some ol' "BRONX" classic Hip-Hop sh*t!!"
