what they want is a fucking dope ass track. i bump that shit hard. i can't get enough of it. the rest of the tracks are dope too. i gave it a 3/5.
i give this a solid 4/5... ya'll know where the title comes from right? That's ** real ** "knowledge," Deck coming hard right there.
Decent street-album from The Rebel INS, a couple of real bangers on here as well as some average stuff. The two bonus-tracks by House Gang is horrible though..
Sound of The Slums (feat. Masta Killa) [4/5]
What They Want [4/5]
Get Ya Weight Up [3/5]
It's Not a Game (feat. House Gang) [3/5]
My Style [2/5]
All I Want is Mine [4/5]
A Lil' Story [5/5] *certified Wu-Banga*
Get Down [4/5]
I Owe You [3.5/5]
No Love (feat. Carlton Fisk) [3.5/5]
Grits Freestyle [3.5/5]
Do My Thang [2/5]
Handle That (feat. U-God & wackness) [4/5]
*would be certified wu-banga if not for Hugh Hef*
Animal Rights (House Gang) [1/5]
H.G. is My Life [1/5]
Without the bonus-tracks by House Gang (which really isn't part of the INS album anyway) I would say that this is weaker than Uncontrolled Substance and a bit better than The Movement. Rhymes and flow is on point as always but he often chooses poor or hollow beats, he also need more good guests since his voice can't hold up the whole album (HG doesn't exactly do the trick).
I just listened to this for the first time yesterday
i can't believe how good Deck's beats are. Rza does an amazing job on lil story too
i was also excited when i was familiar with the verse that showed up on 8 diagrams
overall i thought this was a really good album!
"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away." - Phillip K. Dick
^ Same here I enjoy this album pretty much all the way through. All I want is mine is my favorite deck solo track.
That is not a RZA beat though, its a cilvaringz beat and the track that was credited to cilva is a kevlar 7 beat.
this album really surprised me when i got it i had heard a lil story but i can listen to this album all the way through no problem.I would have to say this is his second best album behind only to uncontrolled substance.It has great lyrics and oddly enough great beats my favorite track is get down with me
i cant believe what i'm reading! this album is GARBAGE!!!! this is not anywhere near the level of deck's talent. compare this album to some of deck's best work:
- the city
- sword play
- above the clouds
- rec room
- for heavens sake
- its yourz
- hollow bones
he's not nearly as creative nor rhyming as good as he's capable of, and this is not nearly as creative or original as "unc. substance".
i aint co-signing this just cause its INS. no way!!! i love deck, and this doesnt even decrease his superiority in my mind, b/c his pedigree is so amazing. but, as we've seen, all the members of wu are not infallible and are capable of dropping a dud.
this album sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i look fwd to him getting back on track w/ his next solo album w/ the help of rza.
(is it evident to anyone else that he WILL be working w/ rza?
I have just finished listenin to it, and it is nothing special.....
It is good for listenin once in a month, but nothin more than tha
t, tho' there r few really good tracks.........
I will rate it 3***...............
Deck is my favorite clansmen. But this is just average. A Lil Story is really cool, and It's Not A Game is passable, but it's just average.
this aint a mixtape it's his offical album
"Fake niggas who tried to flex hard came and went, they couldn't match up wit the fly nigga wit his back against the wall. heads clock when i came in the door"-Ghostface Killah
dope ass motha fuckin tape. havent heard something this dope since boap
great album...deck is a crazy mc, very underated
this album starts off slow...but shit it really builds up, the middle to end is sick...fuckin hectic cd
i give this a solid 4/5
