    Here To Save You All easily for me. To think it was a debut too! This has to be one of the most underappreciated hip hop debut albums for as far back as I can remember.

    Can't say I play it much now, but the song which stick in my memory the most and gets the most play still to this day is 'What Am I'. Which is quite a sad song touching on the issue of what interracial children, like Chino have to go through. I say sad, but he does add quite a lot of humour to it throughout. But anyway, it is the best song on the album in my opinion.

    A Quotable from the album I liked;

    "I show more blind rage than Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles wrestling in a steel cage"

    lol. Sums up the album really. Not for the faint-hearted.

    1. Poison Pen without a doubt....
    2. Here To Save You All, still without a doub...
    3. I Told you so.... not a bad album, but imo it becomes a bit boring and dull after a while... Songs kinda sound alike and shit like that.....

    poison pen was a very high quality album, not JUST the lyrics but also production wise.

    Poison Pen got the best beats, his lyrics are always on point, so that's what wins it for me.
    In the world I see, you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forest around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty carpool lane of some abandoned superhighway.
