"The lyrics right off the back are incessant to the ear, because of the mind state of cherishing the life of today,not tomorrow. The album is giving the listener a clear visual of the ability to prevail with gangs and murders. This album is a structure of social stratification. Young Soldierz display a art of hard lyrics and beats especially on Cut Thoart punk which shows a glimps of society against street vocals.Buy this album and add it to your underground collection, Its a good album."
Solid debut from Big Wy & Lil Stretch

"I first heard of these 2 on the "Murder Was The Case soundtrack" then the "Gang Related Soundtrack" and I liked both them songs so I copped the album. Many may have heard of Big Wy, one half of the Relativez. For an early 1990's release this is some must have West Coast rap. With 13 songs, Lil Stretch is on 12 and Big Wy is on 11. You get 2 almost classics, 4 ok songs, and the other 7 are good. Guests are on a good amount of the songs, (including Suga Buga who is the other member of the Relativez). You get some gangsta songs, deeper hood songs and some funny ones. Production is great for it's time by mostly people I never heard of. J Stank does 5 songs, Duke E Fingaz does 3, Rashad does 2 (very nicely), Big Wy, Lil Stretch and Flip all do 1 song.
