I felt the production was amazing, easily one of Premo's bets ever sets but I felt the mc's really didn't deserve what they where given, their rhymes were really weak and at various points it almost sounds like they were just spittin off the top of the dome which for an album is never a good thing (unless you are odb).
They had the right vibe but they were just not very good, on the whole it is still a great album but it loses a lot of points because of the lyrics.

Production 10/10
Lyrics 4/10
Overall 7/10

Very good album. Livin Proof, Inna Citi Life, Serious Rap Shit, 2 Thousand, Supa Star, Tha Realness songs are my favorite. Lil Dap and Melachi are decent mc's. I don't have a problem with their lyrics. I was so mad at their 2nd album A Tear For The Ghetto. Melachi didn't rap on that many songs on that album and the beats were terrible. They should've let Premier produce that whole album.

++. I remember listening to "Against the wall" a couple of nights ago and I relized how shitty some rhymes were. Like u said, album is dope production wise but lyric wise this isn't nothing special. If only Group home would've upped their vocab game a bit, this album would be a classic.

8/10. Favorite track, 2 thousand

One of the more perfectly executed albums ever. Perfectly sequenced and expertly produced to hide the ridiculously low talent of the emcees. This was Premo's finest creation bar none. He managed to make a four mic album out of two garbage rappers, that's pretty impressive.

Good album, lyrics are kind of ABC'ish and simple, which makes it good with DJ Premiers produciton.

Classic. I thought they were decent MCs, nothing noteworthy, but bearable at least.

classic to the fullest, they weren't the best emcees, but they hold they own on a premo beat,which says alot, they weren't lyrical but they spoke on real shit

I remember when my brother had their Supa Star cassette single before the album came out and when i heard Supa Star, i said god damn. That song is banging. The beat is hard. The video was tight too.

Lyrically not the greatest, rather average, but beatwise its a banger.

i slept on this album for the longest time, cuz i wasn't the biggest fan of Lil Dap. Melachi was always decent to me, but ever since i first heard Dap, i thought he sounded too much like the crackhead on "The PJs" (anyone remember that show? damn funny. too bad it didn't last long.) anyway, after i actually gave the album a chance, i felt that he gave a decent performance on this. one thing to note about these two MCs is that they were about 18 and 20 when they dropped this. for that age, they were definitely more advanced than a lot of other artists that i've known in that age range at least. some of Premo's best production on this album too.

9.5 out of 10

"Suspended In Time" is probably my favorite track on this album. These are definetly some of Primo's best beats all on this CD. It did alot to disguise the sub-par lyrical abilities of Dap n Melachi..

i have been bumping this alot lately and damn what a fucking album it is, production and mixing is totally incredible. might be Premier's finest moment on wax ever and that's saying alot speaking on the man who's responsible for "Hard to Earn", "Sun Rises in the East" and all that good stuff.

Lil' Dap and Melachi is no pair of top-rappers but compared to what's hot in 2009 they easily get a pass. If it wasn't for them, this album would sound nothing like it does - the beats is obviously created around the stories and voices of these 2 kids, much like RZA provided a personal soundscape for all the early solo albums. i don't have a problem listening to these guys with this production to help them.

9.5/10
