Nice choice on this Jean Grae alb. Havent listened in over ten years at least. I had Going Crazy on a fair share of mix CDs that i made around that time. Still have some deep love for that song.
I appreciate the funk of Give It Up. Style Wars sounded incredible in my car, maybe a little out of place on the album, it’s a tough track, i like it. The Wall sounds like a Dr Dre track?
Supa Luv is almost unlistenable, so harsh sounding, one of 9ths more annoying beats imo. Could just be the sound, samples were left way to loud in the mix. Too repetitive, too. It’s basically an Apollo Brown track, who’s a 9th Wonder sockpuppet anyway. Let the beat breathe a bit bud. Too bad cos its one of her more catchy tunes, good hook. Dont Rush Me is a much better 9th track on here but it’s pretty low key.
Kinda interesting to hear something like Whatever which is m/l the blueprint for that repressed (or no) drum sound of the nu new york boombappers Roc Marci/Ka/westside gunn/conway etc.
