Love this one. This is a really good gateway album into 90s southern rap. Think it comes down to the production, it nods to a lot of different regions, a little something for everyone. I think the production ties were stronger between the dirty south and the bay area, than say, the g funk LA scene, but on this album it reaches down to that g funk sound (Coughee is not far off something Ice Cube would rap on). The Pharcyde sound is def prevalent on here, though, probably the best comparison. The Rap A Lot sound had a lot in common with Ant Banks production, who probably doesn’t get enough credit. Squad or Smokin dat Weed sound like they should have a Too $hort or Rappin 4-Tay guest spot. But then there’s some tracks that would sound at home on a native tongues release (hear to say a lil somethin, jazz rendition, cant see it) which is why I think it’s a good gateway album.
