Bringing back that old school hip-hop

"Granted this album isn't as good as Mad Blunted or Dj Kicks, but I love it nonetheless. It certainly doesn't deserve the dogging other reviewers gave it, unless you despise hip-hop for some sick reason. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because not all the tracks are strong...best joints are by far "I Love Hip-Hop," and "Success." Cam is, unlike some djs, tasteful with his scratches, and knows when they're best used. It has that old hip-party party flavor; put it on when you're out or having some friends over and want to get hyped."
Cam can do better

"I bought this CD after i purchased cam's mad blunted jazz. needless to say i am very dissappointed. Cam doesn't show his full potential in this album, and it is a very lack luster cd compared to his others. cam's a genious and all, but this album doesn't show it."
Disappointing effort from a hip-hop genius

"Having already purchased the previous two DJ Cam albums "Substances" and "Underground Vibes" my expectations for this album were high.However when I finally got to hear it,it was largely a dissapointing and frustrating experience,Cam gives us glimpses of his talents on tracks like "I Love Hip-Hop" and the collaboration with Channel Live "Broadcasting Live",but for the rest of the album he loses sight of what it is he does best which is making top class hip-hop.Most of his experimenting on this LP falls short of his usually high standards,his forray into speed-garage being a prime example.Overall I am sorry to say that this album comes over as a stale and lacklustre effort from a man with real talent.If you want to check out the true Cam sound I suggest you check out "Substances" or "Undergerground Vibes" both true Cam classics.
