"You wonder how Ice-T became famous? You wanna know why enough people listened to "Cop-Killer" to make a fuss in the first place? Well Rhyme Pays and Power were the reasons. On this album, Rhyme Pays, anyone who appreciates skill and style will find plenty. "Pain" is what describes Ice-T's philosophy. "Rhyme Pays" shows his skill. Put simply, you can't claim to be old-school and not have this album. It is just too darn good to never have heard. I burned out two tapes of it back before cds..."
It's funny, don't you think?

"It's funny how some of the reviews of this album weren't even made by people who have listened to the CD. Base the rating you give the CD on musical merit, not on your personal right-wing political beliefs and your objections to a song which wasn't on this album in the first place... ie: Cop-Killa"

"This CD put Ice T on the map. Squeeze the Trigger was a personal favorite of mine, this CD doesn't have any fillers. And thats saying something given Ice-T's limited artistic capability.

Note that this CD is an analog to digital recording, given the time frame in which it was produced. Still, the dynamic transfer is very good with very little background noise.

This CD should be in every Ice-T fan collection, and in the collection of a classic West Coast rap fan as well."
